Quotes about Loneliness

When I was feeling depressed and alone, I was looking for ways to understand or accept rather why I was feeling so low. Honestly – deep down I have always known why – it was just the wanting to feel that I matter…that I am not invisible… I am here and I want to be acknowledged and loved ‘as just me’… I realised after some time – that you will never be enough for others. You need to know that you are enough – for you.

Anyway these are some of the words that I thought described how I felt – made me feel less ‘alone’; that I am not the only one feeling this way, this lost. I guess I didn’t have anyone to talk to so I turned to the world wide web at the time – hoping to understand and rationalise what was going on in my head.

There is this song that I remembered as a child – it sounded so sad and I didn’t like it. But now that I am older, the lyrics, the sad tune – somehow I get it now. Loneliness stems from failure in connecting, communicating… 

Anyway – good song by Simon and Garfunkel – The Sound of Silence…
