We are conceived in connection. We are suckled in the security and warmth of connection from the very moment that our mothers hold us against their breast. We cannot perceive the difference between them and ourselves, so it is then, in that state of oneness, that we are the closest to who and what we really are. So close that we don’t even bother to ask the question, “Who am I?” There’s no need to do so because we are not differentiated. But this is where it ends. We begin the process of seeing ourselves as separate to every other thing around us in the physical dimension. When this begins, we all experienced a fall from grace. The grace we fell from was that deep, visceral sense of connection. We taste loneliness for the very first time.https://tealswan.com/resources/articles/the-anatomy-of-loneliness-r307/

Loneliness, is indeed an epidemic in our society, reflected by the rising suicide rates and increased mental illness. Loneliness is not necessarily the same as the physical state of being alone, it is a feeling of separation or isolation. We really have to feel connected to others to live a happy life. I have lost some good friends in the past because of loneliness or depression and that saddens me.

I don't know if people understand how life changing this is. Doing this will literally make you who you always wanted to be.

I have no one, no friends but I've accepted that for my previous behavior. I'm alone and lonely but I will never be alone. I defy it out of a will to suffer and I suffer but I don't tell everyone about it.

At this moment I've no friend but loneliness is indeed a disease which you just feel paining you though you can't heal it! People suffer with loneliness and you see them shedding tears and suffer.

This is the clearest explanation of self-abandonment that I have ever come across.

I too used to be ashamed of being loud, but I integrated it by starting a punk rock band with my friends before I became a photographer.

Mostly loneliness is seen initially in the teenagers
