Both are correct, but mean different things.

I feel alone means there is no one else around. You are by yourself, but may not feel lonely. You may like being alone. But sometimes people will say they feel alone when what they mean is they feel lonely.

I feel lonely means you are alone but want someone else to be with you; to have a connection or communicate with you. You can feel lonely in a crowd if no one is paying any attention to you.


We should look to the past to learn from it, not destroy our future because of it — FounDit
