For an upcoming discussion about 'loneliness', I would love to know YOUR perception of 'loneliness'.

Thanks, Justice,,,, "... knowing their is something very important missing." Definitely a brilliant definition! I will use this.
I am watching you and smiling at this newly found perspective...thank you, Justice!
JusticeBlaze, although I agree with each and every perceptive given to me, I've chosen yours as the best answer, because it explains the feeling short and sweet: "Loneliness is knowing.... that there is something very important missing."
Thank you, Faith. I agree wholeheartedly with you: "Even those just "feeling" alone may hurt the heart even more than actually being alone." Humans are gregarious 'animals', not born to live in solitude. Thanks!
That would be the feeling of being forsaken/abandoned. Thank you, happeningeachday!
Thank you, superkates, I definitely like the description - 'a feeling of emptiness.'
My dearest fpherj, I understand your description so well."... a constant feeling of emptiness..." This 'loneliness' became for the 1st time part of my life after my father had passed away. Though this emptiness could be filled by someone or something
mhussain, yes, I know that feeling one gets when they are not able to connect.... Thank you!
Maggie, and when nobody understand us, how can we believe that anybody loves us? Thank you!
"Not having a shoulder to cry on." Again, the feeling of being abandoned. Thank you, akrwriter.
Thank you, ahorseback - I know exactly what you mean. I am also adding an extract of your perceptive to my hub.
aanderson, you have actually summarized my perception of loneliness - that it is, perhaps, a synonym for depression. Yes, God is a source of strength and power, IF you are not also angry at him.... Thank you for answering my question :)
Marite... I often get angry with God. I found that it is OK. I have literally been down an the floor screaming at him. You know what's weird? for some reason, that's when he starts giving me signs and miracles start happening in my life..
khmohsin, I've just read that chronic loneliness is indeed a serious, life-threatening condition, instigating i.e. cancer, stroke and cardiovascular diseases. Thank you!
