There’s A Reason We Feel Lonely

Theres A Reason We Feel Lonely

There’s a reason we feel lonely even though we’re not alone;  It’s because loneliness is not about how many friends we have or how many people there are in the room with us… It’s a disconnection from other human beings.  Being social doesn’t cure loneliness; Many people socialize when they don’t really feel like it just to keep up appearances. We all have layers and we all pretend we’re okay when we’re not, but loneliness comes when there is not a single person close enough to see past those illusions to who we really are and what we’re really feeling inside.
