The Loneliness Of Feeling Unseen By Others Is As Fundamental A Pain

The loneliness of feeling unseen by others is as fundamental a pain as physical injury, but it doesn’t show on the outside.  Emotional loneliness is a vague and private experience, not easy to see or describe. You might call it a feeling of emptiness or be alone in the world.  Some people have called this feeling existential loneliness, but there’s nothing existential about it. If you feel it, it came from your family.
