Many of us have faced bouts of loneliness. Depending on age and circumstances, loneliness may occur with the onset of numerous conditions including relationship breakups, loss of loved ones, empty nest syndrome, relocation to new cities, etc. Keeping balance is important as some people let their loneliness overtake them. Depression and isolation are common.
Recently, I was in the midst of young ladies in their twenties. Their comments included, “I would rather be lonely than with the wrong man. Solitude is better. Since I am private, I don’t like unwanted people in my space. Alone and lonely are options. Isn’t that better than being hurt, angry, and frustrated?”
The young can teach the old! I took notes!
