Today, I felt very alone. I was surrounded by a lot of people whom I call my friends. I smiled. I laughed. I shared jokes. But there was this one person, whom I felt very far from and it made me feel alone.
What a lonely word, right? Or maybe not.
We’ve all felt alone at times. Sometimes, we are alone physically, when no one is around us, and sometimes, we are alone mentally, when everyone is around us, yet we feel… alone. Sometimes we want to be alone, and sometimes, we have no choice but to be alone.
It’s such a weird feeling, right?
Some people want to be alone while others fear being alone. Some embrace being alone and some, on the other hand, dread being alone. Some may even feel both. They are scared to be alone and constantly surround themselves with people to be not alone, yet mentally they still feel alone.
Do you get it? I don’t.
I don’t get the word alone. I don’t get why there are such different feelings related to alone. I don’t get why even while having fun I felt alone because of one person.
What are your thoughts on the word “alone”?
