Loneliness Alone vs. Loneliness W/ Others

It is something I have thought about a lot over the last few weeks, and am trying to figure out if their is a difference.

If someone is alone, and living somewhere where there is no one else around, they are indeed very alone.

On the flip side, if someone feels alone when they are surrounded by people ("friends"), is that loneliness more lonely, since they can't see the light even as it surrounds their darkness?

I am certain that people have given up on the Minds, but if anyone is still out there, I'd like to hear your thoughts on the matter.


  1. Loenlyness with others around is always worse, I've found.

  2. There is very much a difference between being alone and lonely.

    Someone can be alone and not feel lonely. Their own thoughts and company is sufficient for them, and they do not in any way feel deprived.

    Whereas one can be lonely and not be alone. If someone does not feel understood or accepted, then they can feel lonely even in a close relationship like marriage.

    But, one can be alone and content even when surrounded by others. If I find myself in a group of people who do not get me, but I have the pleasure of my own company, then I am happy. I know who I am, I like who I am, and I do not need the validation of others to maintain that happiness.

    1. I do not need others validation to maintain happiness, but I do need others to maintain my happiness.

  3. I think we all go through phases like this... we feel like others have stopped caring... Loneliness is worse when it cannot be shared... but we feel you... maybe we went awa, or got busy for a bit, but we love to hear from you...
    Personally, this kind of loneliness reminds me of the Choshech of Mitzrayim... the Mitzrim were not alone in the darkness, others were experiencing the same thing, but they could not see the light... you have the ability to move, to change, to find light... you can do it.

    1. Such words of wisdom there at the end...from all I've read from you, it's nice to see a silver lining in your statements from time to time.


Please comment. The minds wonder what you're thinking...
