Do you ever feel lonely?
When late at night you just can’t sleep, and silence is so deafening, it only reminds you of the loneliness.
You know when you feel invisible, unknown.
Or if you are in a crowd of people, and you can’t help but feel that everyone is somehow turned away from you?
Its more than a feeling of emptiness, it’s a type of solitude that can cause physical pain.
I have lots of friends, really good friends! I am also blessed with a most amazing family but I’ve always been a person who is very happy in my own company.
It’s just sometimes, I think it’s when I am feeling at my most vulnerable, the loneliness is there, and for a moment it’s painful…
Maybe in my case it’s more a state of mind than actual social exclusion?
What do you think, do you ever feel lonely?
Thank you for reading
This is a post that I wrote some time ago, but hadn’t published. I wanted to describe loneliness, and share how I sometimes feel. Hopefully if you feel simular you might feel you can comment here, even anon.
