The Cure for Loneliness

Have you ever felt alone in the middle of a crowd? I feel alone everywhere, no matter who’s around me, although there is a small group of people who make me feel less alone. Still, I feel better when I’m alone, basic psychology, my brain knows there’s a smaller change of getting hurt when I’m alone, people hurt other people. It’s terrible to feel this way about other Human beings, but it is the truth, whether you choose not to believe it or not to care about it.

Of course Humans are social being, as in you’ll literally go crazy if you don’t socialize with other Humans. Funny way of evolution assuring our survival… It’s sad to think there are other people like me out there, ‘cause it isn’t that great to be me, I mean, it has its advantages, but overall life isn’t bright. I know why I am the way I am, and why I don’t believe in other people.

Last week I lost all hope in mankind. I’m still not one hundred percent sure that’s true, but all signs point to that. When you can’t trust your parents and have lost everything that used to make you smile, things get dark really fast. Been there, done that so many times. Even my writing go darker, not that it wasn’t because it was, but have you read this pages? I write I’m down more than when I’m okay. It’s my refugee, and even this refugee brings me pain, I used to feel so great and save about it, but, well, something happened, I got hurt and now I can’t even look at my books. Not the topic here! This is about loneliness.

Writing is a lonely job. It’s you and you alone, your heart and your mind together, other people can inspire you, but they won’t write for you, in the end of the day it’s your experiences, your life that creates those particular words in that particular place making those particular sentences. In the end of the day you’re less alone no matter how alone you are, that keyboard, that pen and paper they’ll be there for you. Reflection is the key. To everything.

Once you understand who you are, you will be able to reach out to other people, loneliness will end. The biggest problem is how to surround yourself with people who will accept you for you are, love you unconditionally and be there for you when you them to. If you can do that, even if it’s less than a handful of people, trust me your life will be so much better. Another great plan would be getting a pet, but remember something extremely important, a pet is like a child, you must be able to take care of it, and I don’t mean to afford paying the best care in the world, but the basics, vet care, food, meds, and as important you must have the time, don’t get a pet when you only spend the nights at home for example. They need love and attention just like you.

I felt so alone and so desperate when my dog passed away, only then did I realize my world revolved around her, she always had my back and never, ever got angry at me or hurt me in anyway. That is true love.

May she rest in peace and live forever in the memory of those who knew her, she will live in my heart for as long as it beats.
