Feeling LONELY and feeling ALONE.
Any of you felt either of those?
The conversation that I wanted to have today is around the difference between being alone and being lonely.
Being alone means that you are solitary. You are by yourself. You are isolated, you are in a solitary space. There are no people around you.
Being lonely is a feeling of sadness or abandonment or disconnectedness.
Sometimes people use a word that does not really fit what they are trying to describe.
Alone is being by yourself.
Lonely is a feeling that you have.
You can be lonely and be at a big party. You can feel lonely when you are with somebody that you love. My point is that loneliness is the feeling and being alone is the physical-ness of being solitary.
However, you are never actually alone.
We all have angels and we all have guides that are always with us. So, we are never actually alone.
So, if you are struggling with loneliness, that is something that is a feeling versus when you are feeling alone.
And I just want to make sure you understand that distinction.
