The Depths of Loneliness
Loneliness is hard to explain. Sadness and depression definitely play their part, but there's more to it than that. It's almost as if you go from fading into the background. To becoming the ground, like you are joining the rocks or trees and watching everyone else move forward with their lives. While you are stuck in the same spot physically unable to
join everyone else in living out your life.
The longer you stay in this pit of loneliness. The harder it is to find the strength to pull yourself out of it. Or even decide if you want to leave it at all. Unable to escape this feeling that there is something wrong, but never able to effectively communicate your feelings to others.
They look at you with a confused look. Saying, "What are you talking about? I'm right here. You have so many friends. People would kill to be in your shoes." Yet, they never understand, because they are either unable to understand the abyss that is inside of you. Or they are just too scared to gaze into the abyss.
