Loneliness….

Loneliness is one of the toughest things to live with, people who have to live alone can only realizes the pain and can tell how difficult it is to be alone.

Loneliness is a condition where we can only depend ourselves for any strength or mental nourishment. It is a period when we may be completely alone or, although we are with others, we may feel alienated from them and unable to share our unique experiences with any other person at that at that specific moment.

Feeling lonely sometimes is natural but this is also a fact that humans need to socialize. "We need to have a sense of belonging, we need feedback from others, recognition, and a sense that there are others who care about us, understand us, and that we matter to them." Solitude is not always bad. We have all enjoyed being alone- with nature, or music, or books. It is when we feel depression, boredom, and meaninglessness then we have to act. Prolonged loneliness can become fatal if not dealt with as it can deprive a person of his will to live on.

hence we should cherish our loved ones.

floots said...

(i love it)
loneliness can be at its worst in crowded places
knowing that loved ones are there (however distant) is so important

Yes - loneliness... very complex to know when U are lonely and when U are not? But well sometimes we do want to be lonely to enjoy with oneself and other times U are dying to be with friends and loved ones to drive away you lonliness...

Anitya said...

don't know about being fatal, but read one article last week or a week before, which said prolonged loneliness can cause goofiness.

lately I have been trying to get to accept that perhaps I like to be alone and I am most likely, truely enjoy solitude.....and that I really am not a people person...so I would plan on being alone and not call any people up or do any relationship building.

..yet when friends call up and any suggestion that they might want to get together I am off to meet them and have my day planning altered..

but depression??? hmmm that will be scary....do you think may be I might go down that road????....nahhh

Samrina, what bring up this subject if you don't mind me asking?....but you do not have to answer me on this!

reading all this comments here I guess the most important thing is simply let friends that you cherish knows that you appreciate them whenever you have a chance!...right???

good post, good thoughts, thank you my friend!

take good care!

The solace is that loneliness is very easily gotten rid of; very often it's self imposed. Thus when one gets tired of being lonely all one has to do is step out of ones shell and lo and behold there is a world of people out there, friends, family, colleagues,who are just waiting for you to extend that hand.
The glass is always half full!

I am one who lives in solitude constantly but am never lonely. Nature offers way too much to ever feel lonely. Though loved by family and friends and vice versa I still prefer to spend my time alone. Loneliness is indeed a sad condition - and I have a great deal of empathy for those who feel that way. Good write Samrina.

That's very true -- loneliness is a hard enemy to fight. It's good to want to be alone sometimes but having to be lonely is different. It's very tough.

samrina said...

Hi Anitya,

Well I have heard same too that loneliness results in negativity and make a person react like an awkward but I guess it depend and varies from person to person, its not always same.

Thanks for sharing your views.

Glad to see you around :)

Take care

Hi Tim,

Well friend like you I also like to stay alone and don't like to socialize myself. I am purely an introvert who hardly share her secrets and personal things.

I would definitely like to answer you that what make me write this post. Well as I have mentioned above that I usually like to stay alone and avoid social gatherings n all so for this I am always been pointed out & criticized by people around. Personally I don't feel any harm in it infect I enjoy more to be alone but I don't know why people around me take this negatively even my mom and she always think that I'll be sick or depressed in a way and its not a good thing at all to stay alone that much. So the purpose to write this post is to just have others views and to know that how other people globally see this thing and to clarify myself that whether it is a negative thing or positive and I am glad that to have your all precious views in this regard and really helped me out..

Agreed with you that 'the most important thing is simply let friends that you cherish knows that you appreciate them whenever you have a chance!'...

Thanks a lot for your comment, it's always good to read something from you :)

Hope to see you around :)

Take care

samrina said...

samrina said...

Hi Janice,

Yeah agreed dear, I guess it's just a matter of thinking & feeling...

Same as you I also like to stay alone most of the times and I think its not bad at all...

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Take care

samrina said...

Lonesome strikes all kind of individuals regardless to their distinct. Though, sometimes you gain the connotation of being complete by other individuals. Thus, you’re incomplete with their absence. It often occures to me when my dame isn't around.

I wish upon you a happy day, Samrina.

samrina said...

Hi Meticulousness,

Yea true you said we all need someone to complete us, no one can survive in isolation but its really hard to get someone who can complete u and take you out from feeling of loneliness...

Thanks for your visit and words here.

Hope to see you around.

Hi Samrina...

Thanks you for your openess...I hope you do feel better....You did the right thing to seek verification from other community when the one close to you cannot see eye to eye with things.....it is such a personal issue that really we only know what work best for us..

God bless you!

oh I see you have gone to Island...o.k. where is my boat???

Cergie said...

Coucou Samrina, loneliness is something difficult to live, however I need to be quiet and alone to be able to thoink, to dream to read and so on
I thonk that i'm like a cat who comes to you when she needs to be stroked and then goes away when she needs peace and quiet...

shades of twilight said...

I love loneliness, to a certain extent.. :)

samrina said...

Hi Tim,

It's better to clear rather then being confused & doubtful about things. Anyhow you are welcome anytime dear friend to clear whatever confusions u got :)

Oh! its late now u dnt need to find any boat now as i m back home :)

Thanks for stopping by.
