Aloneness and Loneliness
They sound similar, but are they?
When we are on our own, we can be happy.
For example if you live a life of hustle and bustle, when you get a chance to be alone it can be a happy experience to treasure.
Therefore, being alone in itself is not necessarily loneliness, although if a person does not like being alone, then it can lead to it.
Loneliness, however, can happen even if we are surrounded by people.
How many times have you felt lonely in a room full of people?
This is usually because we find it difficult to interact with these people. Which may be because we have nothing n common, or just because we do not want to interact with them.
Aloneness is an important part of our lives. It allows us to grow and learn about ourselves, whereas loneliness is something that we should try to avoid if possible.
