Loneliness is not the same as solitude. You can spend time in seclusion and enjoy it as a moment of peaceful reflection. Loneliness stands in contradiction to that solace, because it is a state of mind where you feel that you are not understood by the people who surround you. The belief cripples your expression and it makes it harder for others to comprehend your words. Loneliness is not removed by the presence of other people; loneliness is removed by feeling grateful for the connections that you have.
