The feeling of loneliness

Spread the love

Loneliness is an individual`s subjective sense of lacking desired affection, closeness, and social interaction with others. Loneliness causes people to feel alone, empty, and unwanted. The most interesting thing is that some people are socially isolated and they are not lonely. By contrast, some people are lonely even if they have a lot of social contacts.
The feeling of been alone when you are overworking is a natural stat of mind since all your focus is on the work which can make you tired and give you less time to think about your socialIlife, some cases, loneliness can be overwhelming, so overwhelming in fact that lonely individuals feel like they are about to give up on everything! There is a feeling of despair, not knowing how much more of this painful loneliness one can take, feeling as if one is going to break apart at any minute. How agonizing this must be! It’s like inflating up a balloon more than its normal capacity. Lonely individuals may feel this way because very often one is experiencing a wide variety of emotions and experiences, and yet there is no one to talk to, no one to share it with, no one that can understand you. Imagine having a problem with no one to discuss it with. Imagine making the greatest discovery of a lifetime, and yet there is no one there to share it with, imagine working for a better future but no one there to give you the motivation to go for it . These feelings may just be pushed down inside our minds, pushed into a bottle as it were. But there is only so much the bottle can hold, there is only so much our minds can handle. If we don’t tell others, if we don’t share, if we don’t let it out somehow, we may indeed burst. This is why I feel that loneliness can be one of the most creative times in our lives. It’s because without the avenue of talking or sharing, we are left mechanisms that are solitary. Such avenues include things like writing poetry, artwork or even writing in a diary
