Among humans, but alone
Did you ever get the impression that your wife / girlfriend or husband / boyfriend does not understand your feelings or thoughts?
This claim will probably never be completely fulfilled, not even by the people closest to you.
No one, even your spouse or life companion can fulfill this requirement.
Even if you are surrounded by many people, you may still feel misunderstood and lonely at times.
That is because we are all unique and different beings.
Be aware that there is not a single person in the entire universe who has the same personality, way of life, same thoughts, feelings and needs as you. NONE! Not even twins!
To be alone is an elementary event.
How can anyone fulfill all these requirements to meet each individual?
There is a quote from the Bible that says, “But should not we, before looking for the splinter in the eye of our brother, remove the beam from his own eye?”
What do you mean with that?
By understanding that other people are not required to fulfill our desires and needs, we in a sense learn to expect less from others, and it makes it easier for us because our expectations over others cease.
We learn to accept others better and to judge less, so we make the first step out of isolation and loneliness – it is a process of letting go which frees us!
Remember that we are the sum of the five people with whom we spend most of our lives.
If there are always people in your living environment who have a negative impact on you and are pulling you down, it’s no wonder why you feel miserable, misunderstood and lonely.
It is only too understandable if children leave home, away from unpleasant, uncomprehending and intolerant parents or if they avoid certain people in their circle of acquaintances or friends, because their interaction does not do them good and they instead only hinder their further development.
