“We have all known the long loneliness and we have learned that the only solution is love and that love comes with community.” ~Dorothy Day
Throughout my life it’s been really hard to admit when I’ve felt lonely.
I’ve been through intense periods where I have been without others.
I’ve been surrounded by people yet have felt no real connections.
The people I have loved have been physically or emotionally absent.
I’ve simply been alone over weekends, over weeks, over months, over years, and it has been grueling and horrible.
