There is a big difference between being alone and being lonely.
I never get to be alone, I’m constantly forced to sit in rooms full of people I can’t stand.
And yet I feel interminably lonely.
It might sound silly to cry of loneliness surrounded by people.
But I don’t like being with those people.
And I don’t like being alone with myself, either.
And that is what it feels like to be lonely.
That’s so nice of you! Thanks very much! Have a nice evening. :)
