What's It All About?

We are all familiar with being in a room or house filled with people and yet still feeling lonely. So the loneliness is not about physical proximity to other people. I am wondering whether it's about emotional loneliness? What we lack is someone in whom we can confide, trust with our innermost thoughts, rely on to support us when we are happy or sad and so on. Ideally this would be a reciprocal arrangement.

Do we then need to distinguish between physical and emotional loneliness?

Well said, UC. The damage that it can leave in its wake is something very powerful. <br />

Loneliness is something no one should ever have to face. It is hell.
