... ALONE ...
This article is maybe one of the hardest ones I have set out to write, especially given the effect of my own being alone the past six months. It can be very complex and for each person being alone has a different meaning, a different experience, a different effect. Interesting enough. The frist part of this article will cover the various types of feelings, effects that being alone can have on a person.
The Feelings of beng being alone - General Overview
For each person, the experience of being alone is different. For some, being alone is a choice and they exist and are happy with that choice. For others, being alone can be a tribulation and very hard experience. First off, it's important not to be reliant on anyone else for your own personal happiness. Friendships, relationships and other inerpersonal situations can come and go and if we are relaint on the people in those situations this could create an unstable and difficult situation in our lives everytime a change happens. This article will focus on the people who have been alone for a prolonged period of time and who are affected emotionally and by the feelings inside their hearts. Again there is so much invloved with this subject, its diffcult to cover all the details. Interesting enough, at this time I am actually experiencing a prolonged period of being alone and the emptiness and lonleyness asscoaited to this experience. In fact, it's difficult to concrentrate and focus but will try my best.
If your living in an area where long time friends and family are close by, this can be helpful in avoiding total isolation compared to being in a distant city or location. In my city, Vancouver BC Canada for example, perhaps more than 50% of the population are from other cities or countries and many do not have long tme friends or family here. This can create an even more difficult sotuation when faced with being alone, almost total isolation. Being an internaitonal city, here in Vancouver, new friends come and go as they come to study or work then return to their home countries a year or so later.
In eother case, a person can still feel isolated with our wothout friends or family close by because the relaity is when you go home, your still alone even after having been wth friends or family. Not having a life partner for some is a heavy burden, myself included.
Wriitng this article is much harder than I expcected, there is so much to cover on so many levels .. I can't write it at this time but will try to complete it soon .. I'm n the middle of my own islation at this time .. I know what I want to say, but hard to put it into words at this time ...
