I know many people who have never felt lonely - like me. I live on my own but I never feel lonely. But I do sometimes feel alone - which is different.
For example if I dream of a past partner or my parents, for a split second on waking, they are still with me. But the realisation soon hits like a
brick that there is no one. It's the only time I think of it to be honest but it is a terrible feeling. There is a void which can't be filled with
friends or any amount of activities or socialising. And I very much doubt that meditation would help either.
