    Amy, you have a way with words and drawing one into your stories and feelings.

    With the present situation we are many times alone despite the internet etc. I am on the other side of the globe from my siblings, parents passed many many years ago, and in these times I must admit that I do feel lonely and miss them tremendously. As I do not work anyone, recently retired, that also add an extra dimension to being alone.
    I do my best to connect as much as possible to keep up the spirit and pray that things will settle soon

      Esme, I appreciate your kind words.
      I know there are so many people experiencing loneliness for so many reasons. I imagine there are many like you that are retired and away from their family.
      I hope you continue to find solace into your blogging and social media work. You are great at it.

    Sadly the way if the world this day and age is completely filled with loneliness. The worst type of loneliness is being in a room filled with people and feeling completely alone. This is a beautifully written post. I appreciate you sharing.

    Loneliness is really worse than poverty and it is understood by people who experience it. Beautifully expressed and my heart went out to your grandmother. I am extremely close to my grandma and she prefers to live alone for reasons best known to her after my grandpa passed away. But not a moment passes when my heart doesn’t ache for her.

      Isabella, now I’m crying. I was so close to my grandma. I know all the loneliness she experienced contributed to her Alzheimer’s.
      We all need people.
      Thanks so much for reading.

    “We are united in solitude.” Isn’t that the truth? We have to find ways to reach out to each other, to assume the best in each other so that we can have more friends – maybe even people we never thought we would be with.

    This is beautiful, I have dealt with loneliness in my past in situations where I just couldn’t fit in. But the love and presence of my Lord Jesus kept me standing strong till I found my place. It’s all in Him really. He’s the solid rock upon which we stand.
    Thank you for sharing

      Thanks for your comment. We all have to find our place. That’s the good thing about life is you can count on it always changing. Loneliness comes in waves, and that’s a good thing that it doesn’t remain constant.

    I think social media is like a pill that temporarily takes away the pain of loneliness. It’s still there, lurking in the background, unresolved, but the pill makes it all better a little while. Yet the core reason for that pain is not addressed. The worst part is when even the people in our lives are taking the same pills. We’re all inches apart, but miles away.

      Yes Paul, this is so good!
      It reminds me also of the post I wrote on anxiety and how I feel medicine it a temporary fix. We have to address these issues by getting to the core of why.
      Thanks for your comment.
