Loneliness and Being Alone are Universal aspects to the human condition. These are necessary elements that we will feel at various points and time in our life, whether we live alone, whether or not we are in a relationship, whether we have families, and whether or not we are connected to larger groups and community. Like the need to drink water, or breathe oxygen, I have come to believe that loneliness and being alone are for some reason, facets to our vitality and the growth of our life force, if we are to evolve over a stretch of time. If we are to think of ourselves as seeds, Loneliness and Being Alone are both like having enough space in the soil for us to take root and to develop a firm holding within that foundation. These two things- Loneliness and Being Alone will definitely visit us, whether it is periodically throughout our lives or whether it comes to us like a relative who refuses to leave (after having lived throughout years where one avoids this state like the plague). They WILL visit. In the more extreme fashion, they will arrive much like oxygen hitting the lungs after being under water for too long. There are just so many ways in which loneliness and being alone will manifest. Make these 2 things your friends and you will find, that you really don't have to explain your circumstances to very many people. Once this principle is grasped, there is really nothing to defend, other than the wholeness of your own life as is.
