Aloneness

Being in this world is interesting.  We can be surrounded by so many people, yet feel incredibly alone.  A few of my friends say “You have a lot of friends.”  It is wonderful to have so many friends – especially as many fabulous friends as I have.  

Even when you have many friends, it’s still easy to feel alone.  Some feel alone even when they have family.  Some feel alone even though they are surrounded by an incredible community.  Others do not feel alone at all because they have everything they need to not feel alone.  

I encourage you to never assume that someone is not feeling alone and/or lonely.  What makes you feel less alone, less lonely, may not be the ticket for them to feel belonging, to not feel alone or lonely.  

If you know of someone who is feeling alone and/or lonely, I encourage you to reach out to them in friendship and support.
