Hello blog family, how have you being, your family too? I’m working on regular posts and a couple of additions to the category. One thing I’ve lacked on this blog are comments – encouragement though I know have all the readers yet but those that do read should please leave a comment.
That said, just like happiness, hope, faith, loneliness is a state we most likely have experienced at one point or the other. How lonely is loneliness? How would you define loneliness?
In the words of some great people, I’ll love to describe loneliness. In subsequent posts it causes, possible prevention and solution.

Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.
Mother Teresa
Nobody wants to be lonely just like no one likes to be associated with poverty.

Loneliness is my least favorite thing about life. The thing that I’m most worried about is just being alone without anybody to care for or someone who will care for me.
Anne Hathaway
Now that’s horrible.

Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude. It’s because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.
Jodi Picoult
Disappointment is a cause of loneliness.

The loneliest moment in someone’s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Lord have mercy.

Too much self-centered attitude, you see, brings, you see, isolation. Result: loneliness, fear, anger. The extreme self-centered attitude is the source of suffering.
Dalai Lama
Self-centered attitude place an individual on loneliness path.

The worst part of holding the memories is not the pain. It’s the loneliness of it. Memories need to be shared.
Lois Lowry
That’s right!

Some days, 24 hours is too much to stay put in, so I take the day hour by hour, moment by moment. I break the task, the challenge, the fear into small, bite-size pieces. I can handle a piece of fear, depression, anger, pain, sadness, loneliness, illness. I actually put my hands up to my face, one next to each eye, like blinders on a horse.
Regina Brett
That’s a good solution or advice.

Negative emotions like loneliness, envy, and guilt have an important role to play in a happy life; they’re big, flashing signs that something needs to change.
Gretchen Rubin
Examine your life and change what needs to be changed.

Look for yourself, and you will find in the long run only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin, and decay. But look for Christ, and you will find Him, and with Him everything else thrown in.
C. S. Lewis
At the foot of the cross, I trade this ashes for beauty and there lies the greatest solution to loneliness.

Till the next post, take care and leave your comments. Thank you.
