If submitting an image of someone other than yourself it cannot qualify as 'you feel alone'.
A similar point has been raised before. One response pointed out that "you" is often used in a general sense and needn't mean the photographer. "How do you get to the courthouse?" "You go up this street here, turn right at the first stoplight, and . . ."
What if we had a thread called "Shots that make you laugh"? Then the person who had set up or observed the scene, taken the shot, and postprocessed it would likely not be laughing at the moment when the image hit the forum: that person, thoroughly familiar with the image, already knew the punchline.
Images might make some people feel alone for their own reasons and have no such effect on other viewers. A photo of your dear deceased grandparents (this is the general "you" again) might make you feel especially bereaved and alone. A photo of a group of smiling strangers having a happy time together might make you feel alone, even envious, because you're not sharing their joy. I don't think that's the kind of experience this thread is for.
