What is the difference being alone and being lonely
During the weekend i had a couple of hours finally again to think about my life, my way, my goals, where i am coming and where i am going...
I had a great time as usually with my friends, but nowadays i prefer not to go to the crowdy places, because of only one reason; i wanna avoid to get into the serious converstation about my lonely lifestyle.
Well, i am NOT lonely, but i am totally satisfied to be alone!
Just to be clear the difference between the two expression: being alone is the state of being, loneliness is the state of mind.
Why i choose to be alone?
So first of all, when you are lonely, you are looking for someone or something to fill your time, to fill the void in your schedule and to fill a void in your heart. You hope for company and feel depressed when you are by yourself. Loneliness is a negative state of mind where you are always longing for the other. Never satisfied being by yourself and always looking elsewhere for fulfillment.
However, alone is a positive state of mind, a very fulfilling place to be. It is a state where you are always and constantly delighted in yourself. It is a happiness, content with nothing, and peaceful. You do not rely on anyone but yourself to feel alone, and you are happy being alone.
You become everything you need for you. You are finding and defining who you are while you are alone. Before you wanna be perfectly happy, you must first learn to enjoy to be alone. If you search for someone or something to fill the void of your loneliness, you will find the exact same thing.
It's like you're screaming, and no one can hear
You almost feel ashamed
That someone could be that important
That without them, you feel like nothing
No one will ever understand how much it hurts
You feel hopeless; like nothing can save you
And when it's over, and it's gone
You almost wish that you could have all that bad stuff back
So that you could have the good
