Many people are lonely. Is there something that they can do about it, or is it the result of their circumstances in life?

That is an excellent observation, Kate. We do not have to be a victim of our circumstances! I'm glad that you brought out that being alone does not necessarily mean that we are lonely. We can be with others and still feel that way.
The rainstorm metaphor is very effective. I have found that to be true in my own life. I will experience a period of loneliness, and then it will pass and I won't feel that way again for a while.
That is a tough situation to be in, Penny, I feel for you! I hope that you can find someone that will help you feel the friendship that you need.
That is a good point, DDE. When we feel loneliness, we can seek out others to join us, and perhaps alleviate their feelings of loneliness as well.
