I believe we will all have moments when we feel very alone or very different from others. Paradoxically, if we are all capable of feeling this, doesn’t that mean that after all we are not as different as we feel?
We all share the same type of emotions.
They are our common ground.
However, it is also true that most of us do not know how to deal with uncomfortable emotions.
We can’t always tell the difference between what it feels like to be alone and what it’s like to feel lonely.
If we can learn to be with ourselves, maybe we can never feel alone.
If we can learn to know ourselves, we may feel lonely less often.
Or rather, maybe we learn how to deal with that emotion when it arises.
When it arises to… keep us company?
