I’d say loneliness is a lack of connection. Being around people is often far lonelier than being alone. I’m not afraid to be alone, actually I enjoy being alone. But I am close to my family and my boyfriend, but I still feel lonely. I have often resigned that this is me, that I won’t ever not feel lonely. That it’s a result of being weird, being intelligent and creative. The result of ptsd and how you can’t talk about what you’ve been through and you don’t dare talk about how it’s always in your head replaying over and over. I don’t have friends, but do friends cure loneliness? Real friends, the kind that stick with you. I don’t know. What do you think of loneliness? What do you do to not feel lonely?
