Loneliness

Hello anyone who cares! I'm sorry I haven't been active lately, so much to do working on my thesis but we are almost finished and about to have finally some free time yeeeeey! Anyways, I couldn't resist posting today because I've been having a lot of signals telling me to do it. What am I talking about? well you will see!

First, a couple friends have been talking to me about how lonely they feel on the place they live, and how hard its been for them to find people they can call friends. 

Second, I saw this story about a town with only one habitant, Monowi Nebraska in the U.S.A. The only lady living there decided to stay after her husband passed away some years ago. If you are wondering, they decided to stay together after everyone in the town eventually left when the train arrived around the 30's. 


Then I saw this video of a song I like, you may not get it because its in spanish but basically is about someone's inner confrontations because he feels lonely and doesn't know why when apparently nothing is missing. On a side note the video shows a big influence from his father from who I posted some time ago, it's really cool ^_^.
 


This stuff made me wonder about my own loneliness, what I was probably aware but trying to ignore while making up excuses like... I'm busy for that and I don't have time to worry about it, probably the reason I've been unconsciously slacking off at college trying not to finish to keep myself busy lolwut anyways thats another story.

I think we can see a pattern here, but the question I wonder is why? Why does loneliness affect people on different ways? Or is just people reacting on different ways to it? Why do people make it a comfort zone and doesn't leave it? Is it something affecting more people than we are actually aware of? Maybe just an effect of the contemporary times? 

Oh well, I will continue on the next post on next week, but for me to get a better idea would you please  give me your opinion on the topic? Also do you feel lonely?

  3. I suppose that many people now communicate with each other through electronic mediums rather than face to face. If you get out of prctice of meeting people it becomes harder and more awkward to do. Practice is everything and don't be too afraid of what other people may think of you.

  4. I only have a few close friends because I'm so damn picky. I can go out and see maybe fifty to a hundred people that I know and could talk to, but it's the people I choose to let into my life that are the most important.

  5. I believe that only when you are ready for solitude you can bond with other healthy. Otherwise, you may be so afraid of being alone that you will bare more then you should.

  7. Awh, don't feel lonely *hug*. I think everyone in their lives goes through a phase where they think that they don't have anyone to confide in, but reality is that your friends (doesn't matter how many) as well as your parents, still care for you and love you.

  9. Everyone feels lonely from time to time. It must take great strength of will to go on completely alone like that lady did.

  10. I really like the clip, its imagery is other-worldly, and while I couldn't understand the lyrics, I was digging the tune. I do often feel lonely and I can also relate to that affecting my performance at uni. I hope you are able to get through it until you can be with friends again <3 Congrats on finishing your thesis - can't be long now!

  11. I make excuses to myself to feel lonely, it's easier that way. However it's never a bad thing, being lonely makes me feel like I actually have time to do stuff.
