Hey, I got a #question
When you are isolated and you feel lonely, do you think it is more important to
- embrace the loneliness, or to
- work on overcoming it?
I'm feeling very lonely lately.
I'm not able to talk with certain people anymore, that I was able to share my heart with in the past
Being in this state of disconnection is intense for me, difficult to manage.
What would help me were to know when I'd be able to reconnect with said people again.
But I don't know about that
@d599f84e I embrace the loneliness, because overcoming it means depending on other people and other people are unreliable and untrustworthy.
In such cases I prefer to embrace the tristesse... Desolation and sadness are just feelings, they are not worse than happiness. If I can arrange to live with their occurrence it's part of life.
I think it's a kind of important vent to be sad if something makes you feel this way. Otherwise I'd get the feeling to get really depressed in the meaning of a disease...
