Part IV: Self-Management > Am I Lonely?

Chapter 21. Am I Lonely?

Loneliness isn’t necessarily the presence or absence of people. Many people can be around, yet you can still feel lonely: Times Square on a holiday after breaking up with your boyfriend, that large hall full of people on your first day of college, or the funeral service where hundreds of friends came to mourn the death of a loved one. There are other times where you are physically by yourself, but feel very connected: fishing at your favorite spot on the lake, listening to the waves break on the shore of the beach, engrossed in an exciting new project, reading alone at home, meditating.
