What is the psychology of feeling disconnected?

I feel very disconnected from the world.


Answer by  Atom (7)

To feel disconnected is like having a piece of yourself taken away, you know in your heart that you are still whole, but no matter how hard you try you just can't find what feels like the missing connection. Where is the bridge that used to lead to joy and happiness?

I don't know what you mean by "what is the psychology of this feeling." If you're asking why a person might feel disconnected, there are several reasons from depression to a possible dissociative disorder. It's hard to tell without knowing more about you.

Feeling disconnected can be caused by many things, but the general sense of disconnection is usually felt when what you are offering the world, physically, emotionally, intellectually, or spiritually, is being rejected, or what you need from the world is not being met.


Answer by  Doomstoned (1454)

Modern psychology fails to properly contextualize the feelings of disconnection. Such feelings actually constitute the onset of spiritual transcendence, the separation from the linearity of corporeal existence and liberation from the prison of flesh, which if not understood as such can obviously be a frightening and difficult process.

Often times feeling disconnected will be a symptom of depression. It is a rather vague term that is difficult to know the full meaning of your question. There are disorders that make people feel more disconnected as well. Isolation from friend and family can be a sign of problems. If you are worried about this, speak with a therapist.
