My profound thought of the week - loneliness

I have come to the conclusion that loneliness, profound and persistent, is the worst fate any human can suffer.

This can include many forms of disconnection - from our past, present, and future. From friends, family, and strangers. From speech, touch, or physical presence. From faith, hope, or love.


  1. I find it interesting that loneliness is often associated with solitude and yet one can be profoundly lonely in the midst of a huge crowd, a loving family gathering, a marriage.

  2. Another blog I read also posted about loneliness on the 21st.

  3. Yes. and ironically it is the biggest illusion of them all.
