Loneliness is terrible, it is worse when you lose someone whom you love and rely upon such as your parent whom you have looked after - or more
accurately despite there age whom you always felt looked after you.
Overnight you lose your balance and even may want to go wherever they have gone but knowing they would never want that you persevere, this pain never
goes away, never diminishes and no you do not get stronger but you find other reason's to live as your book remember is not yet written, these other
reasons never replace the one's you have lost whatever they were but they are there, and have you lost or just cut yourself off - if so get out there
join a club, go to a sport's center, go to a church perhaps or whatever faith you may be.
Loneliness can be worse if you are shy, isolated in some way but there are those out there that crave it despite the fact it can lead a sane man to
talking to himself just to break the silence of his home.
A pet, a cat or a dog or whatever you feel best with is often the best company to break that.
But still sorrow will never pass though you may still find joy in time's and if you are HERE on this world with the rest of us you are here for a
reason even when it seem's there is non that is just because that reason has not yet shown itself to you.
Someone out there is far more lonely than you.
Strength and remember this no matter how alone you may find yourself how those wall's may seem to close in and cut you off, how scared you may become
of venturing into the outside world, even of people as cabin fever begin's to bite just remember you are NEVER Alone.
Other's know or have known your pain, perhaps it is just a part of growing up, a part of adulthood and a part of old age, it is that little child we
used to be AND at some level still are wanting our mom back or the lover missing the one they loved and unable to accept that the world changes and
time wait's for no man, we have to move along with the change or it will sweep us along with it, try to learn to swim in those currents of change as
they draw us along with them and fight for that breath of life, fight and never let the light die, keep the best of our self, the love the memory of
happy, even a memory is worth living for because only we can remember it.
You are never along but grief is the greatest loneliness of all far worse than just being alone, you can fix that but grief is a wound that may never
heal until we see those we have lost again.
God keep you safe and grant you guidance.
Also like you say a psychological disorder, Depression as well as some other forms of mental illness often begin with loneliness, even a sane person
can so fall foul of mental health issues as a result of loneliness, but you know something - some of the greatest genius in human history were
extremely lonely or felt isolated from the rest of humanity in some way.
So it can also be a sign of great intellect?.
