How can you feel so alone in a crowd?

Naomi Stevenson, 22

My entry explores how it is possible to be surrounded by people but to still feel so alone and out of place. My struggle with mental health, has made me feel like the only light to be going out while everyone else around me shines brightly. It also shows that you can burn yourself out by trying hard to fit in. Mental health is important because so many people now suffer from it, no-one should feel alone, or be made to feel like they have to burn themselves out just to fit in. It’s okay to not be okay.
