Do you always feel lonely even in the company of good friends? Can’t watch hugot films without crying? There may be a scientific reason why you're more morose than other people, and according to a study by researchers from the University of Chicago, it has something to do with the way your brain is wired.

For the study, two groups of participants were asked to identify the colors in a series of words that were related to social involvement such as "party "or "solitary." As this went on, researchers then used electrodes to analyze brain activity. They found that there was, indeed, a difference in brain activity between those who identified as very lonely and those who weren’t lonely.

"This finding suggests the tendency to feel lonely is subconscious and inherent, and it’s impossible to control the way the brain responds to stimuli." reports EliteDaily.

So if you're feeling a little sad today, don't worry—you're not the only one who feels that way. Need a pick-me-up? Read these stories!
