  1. Loneliness

    Loneliness is a complex and usually unpleasant emotional response to isolation. Loneliness typically includes anxious feelings about a lack of connectedness or communality with other beings, both in the present and extending into the future. As such, loneliness can be felt even when surrounded by other people. The causes of loneliness are varied and include social, mental, emotional, and spiritual factors. Research has shown that loneliness is widely prevalent throughout society among people in marriages, relationships, families and successful careers. It has been a long explored theme in the literature of human beings since classical antiquity. Loneliness has also been described as social pain — a psychological mechanism meant to alert an individual of isolation and motivate him/her to seek social connections.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Life is never static, and that's what I Think is the most beautiful aspect of Life. Life is beautiful because it is dynamic; because of her ups and downs, twists and bends, and ebbs and flows in general. Nothing is permanent ever, and only constant is the constant change. 'Even this shall pass!' is the mantra, and also a constant reminder for us, on every occasion when we feel very excited with life's flows, and during the darkest moments when we feel down and out with life's ebbs. The successes, disappointments, friendships, betrayals, helplessness, happiness and loneliness etc, all these will pass away, as the life moves on. So enjoy today, especially this moment and the power of 'Now.' Cheers!

  5. F Scott:

    Thirty-the promise of a decade of loneliness, a thinning list of single men to know, a thinning brief-case of enthusiasm, thinning hair.
