Loneliness is the worst pain in this world. It constantly eats away the person’s heart, and can cause the person to hate, to feel enraged. It is like a wound of the heart; the type of wounds that cannot go away with a kiss or a hug. The only thing that can make this great pain go away is love and compassion, another human heart to pull them out of this hell.

I’ve told you the four thunderstorms – disappointment, frustration, unfairness and isolation. You cannot avoid them, as like the monsoon they will come into your life at regular intervals. You just need to keep the raincoat handy to not let the spark die.

Loneliness is a big word but with a simple meaning. Being set apart from people, having the feeling that no one cares about you. Then your mind takes a journey that you don’t want to go down: suicide, mistakes, and a lost of hope. I feel like I’m in a hole that is precluding for me to get out.
A student to teacher: “I am so alone; I don’t know what to do?” Teacher: “Do not worry about being alone, we always come alone and go alone. In a very sweet accident, we meet others who are alone and start to be part of them in various forms of relationships such as friends, husband, wife, mother, father, sister and so on. So, life is about sharing a moment together, not thinking as if you are alone.

I’m tired. I’m soooo lonely. I don’t live, I only exist. It seems like all I do is struggle, financially and mentally. And now I have had other struggles that I can’t get anyone to do anything about it. Having things in my yard is the last straw. It has made me and my precious little dog prisoners in our house. I can’t fight it any more. I don’t want to hurt my loved ones, but, they live so far away from me that they don’t really know what I’m going through. I have fought long enough to try to live. I hate the way I’m existing! I love both of my precious daughters and their families. But, I hardly ever see them. They have their own lives to live.
When we’re anxious, disconnected, vulnerable, alone, and feeling helpless, the booze and food and work and endless hours online feel like comfort, but in reality they’re only casting their long shadows over our lives.
