Lonely is Good
#1
Apparently loneliness can be good because there are Buddhist monks who purposely go into Solitude in the forest in order to meditate. The point is that being alone helps one to meditate.  Maybe those of us here who suffer from loneliness can use it to our advantage by using it for meditation.  Maybe the Universe has designated loners to become adepts at meditation.  So loneliness can be a blessing. What do you loners think of that??

Everything is a matter of how to take it in. For the most part, you can't control what happens around you. But you can control how you perceive the events. There are advantages to being alone. These days many couples are fighting and having all kinds of problems being cooped up together. If you focus more on the advantages and dwell less on being lonely things just might seem not as bad. However I believe a lot of people on here are seeking sympathy and comfort for their loneliness not ways to shed it.

Yes I agree with your statement that many married couples fight.  It's especially so during this Corona stay-at-home mandate which causes domestic friction, a rise in domestic violence.  So it's ironic that the Lonely feel Envy for couples.

For someone who are lonely and don't have the natural attraction to being that, then it's pretty hard for them to perceive it differently. Someone with cancer can still say that he's lucky since he doesn't have aids but yeah. It's a dodged bullet for sure but it doesn't help the main issue at all. The cancer is still there eating up his insides. 
Being grateful for what you do have is important but tying that to dealing with something that's a big big issue doesn't always work.
Especially when the issue is loneliness.

I totally agree with you. I don't need someone to tell me how to deal with loniless I want someone to talk to.

But you're inviting both views. You can't get mad if someone says it. Unless you say right off the bat that's what you want.

The following survey shows that older people clearly reported LESS loneliness than younger people.
