We are all loners in some way. Either traveling alone, reading alone, studying alone, living alone, crying alone. Even we're born alone to the world. But into different extent, the state of being alone doesn't always mean to be lonely. There are people around who care about us even when we don't do justice to them, there are always people we ignore or less seriously taken. And so to see lonesome as our ever-present companion, we might stop moaning about how lonely we are and how sucks loneliness are - just to realize that loneliness is everyone's shared emotions. And when it happens to every person, it likely be adaptable. I'm all to lonesome, it's part of me, and I love having lonely times once in a while to feel its serenity. Let's embrace this... And start creating a solitude soul instead. Do you still feeling that lonely anymore now?
"Language... has created the word "loneliness" to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word "solitude" to express the glory of being alone."
- Paul Johannes Tillich, The Eternal Now
