Loneliness is like a wave (sometimes big or small), it touches us but if we don’t stand strong we will get washed away or even worse lost in the ocean.
We are surrounded by a throng of people through our day, we have our loved ones, a call away or a step away and yet there are times we feel “Lonely”. We surround ourselves with pets, constant chatter or the screeching voices on the television. But, still there is an emptiness.
Btw, loneliness is experienced by people of all ages. The young, middle-aged people as well as their grandparents. Look at the happiest face around you or the most social person you know and they will tell you that they are acquainted to loneliness too. We can fill our days with work, people, laughter, parties and hobbies. But, that lonely feeling can visit you anytime, anywhere. In midst of a party, while hanging out with friends, after a long conversation with your loved one or just when you hit the bed after a taxing day.
Loneliness is and always has been the central and inevitable experience of every man.
It’s often told that “Loneliness has an important role to play in a happy life; it’s a big, flashing sign that something needs to change.” Maybe, more of a perception change and learning to live with yourself even when people leave or you face disappointments. Let’s take it like a challenge? Ok. Maybe. Like we have have a choice.
