Loneliness is… 609 419 Jason Stadtlander

Loneliness is something that many of us cope with on a daily basis. Sometimes we can be more lonely in a crowded room that we are standing next to a single person.

Webster’s Dictionary defines loneliness as:

  1. 1a :  being without company :  lone
    b :  cut off from others :  solitary
  2. not frequented by human beings :  desolate
  3. sad from being alone :  lonesome
  4. producing a feeling of bleakness or desolation
lone·li·nessplay\ˈlōn-lē-nəs\noun
However, rarely does a definition convey what loneliness or any other emotion really is.
The reality is, loneliness is is a chasm deeper than the eye can see.
