“Learn to be alone and to like it. There is nothing more freeing and empowering than learning to like your own company.” ― Mandy Hale
I believe there are those of us who feel eternally alone , no matter what or who surrounds us . I for one am always on the edge of being alone, sometimes I chose it . Yet I have moved beyond the negative feeling of it itself , and live with a deeper contemplative hollowness of it mostly ! Being here helps !
Your so right. I went to see a therapist once, and he told me I was "desperately lonely and had been my whole life." I don't know why that was such a revelation to me, but it was. I never go to therapy, b/c they've never said anything I hadn't thought of myself, but that one really stuck out to me as a revelation, though it seems so simple.
"...sharing a drink they call loneliness, but it's better than drinking alone."
-- Billy Joel
Once I considered myself an intelligent man , now though , Yeaa now it's me and my sock puppets , hey I'm human , what can I say !
Sed-me , we all reach out for our sanity in our own ways don't we . I do have one with you on it though !.......:-}
Oh , and I recall what you said about my poetry once in a forum ,and I beamed for days , thank you from the bottom of what heart I have left !
Sophia Loren, in her autobiography, said something like "Learn to love yourself, so when you are alone you will be in good company."
Hi Phyllis , Yes ..........do I ever love that woman ! She once fell in love with Walter Matheau in Grumpy old men !
If I were a man, I would have loved Maureen O'Hara. She was beautiful, funny, down to earth... loved her accent. She and Lauren Bacall were just so beautiful.
Yes - those two were real ladies and so lovely.
Maureen and John Wayne... I sound like Im 100 years old, but they were the best.
He was a man's man. She was a tough cookie, but feminine. I love all those old couples... Spencer Tracy/Katherine Hepburn... they were just so romantic. I think it's my weird meds talking. lol
Greetings, Ed. Sophia Loren is the epitome of woman. I remember she also said the she wears a touch of red every day because red is energy and positive. "Even if you can't see it I wear red every day." She said. She was so lonely after she lost Carlo Ponte, until she began to realize how valuable it is to love Self..
Yes , that's so true , for me its all a mirage though ! Is there ever a truly awesome love ! Why does it evade so many ? How teasingly perfect love really is .
I guess there comes a time where we realize love never had anything to do with what we got and everything to do with what we gave. We'll never feel loved by receiving like we will in giving. It seems so backwards, but God's ways are higher than ours.
"in what we gave " ! I believe that about says it all ! and you know what , you said it .
Strange in a way isn't it , Too have had it all yet yearn for more ! I love the "wearing red " thing , my God that woman was gorgeous !

Is loneliness just something that happens or is it a choice we make?Many people are lonely. Is there something that they can do about it, or is it the result of their circumstances in life?

Are you feeling lonely too? Do you get lonely often? Why or why not? Is there a particular reason you're feeling lonely?
