When you feel lonely
Today, I feel lonely. Let’s see why. You’ll remember that I use this blog a bit like a diary. Well, here’s a more personal entry. Today, I feel like I’m alone. Not physically alone in the world, but alone in my sense of belonging. Like in the expression “out of sight, out of mind”, even if I know that other people share my questioning or opinion, it appears that, in my surroundings, I am alone in asking myself these questions. Why?
Firstly, because this kind of thinking is somewhat taboo. It is therefore not practised or necessarily appreciated. Thinking that questions a system that is working and which is based on philosophical letting go. Yet, “why” is a very popular question, both at work and at home, but the search for the true answer requires significant effort and the choice to opt for a ready-made solution is often the most popular. (Fast food?)
Secondly, not talking to my loved ones is a personal choice, so I am aware of my loneliness. This type of thinking, although for almost everyone, cannot be done at any time. For example, my partner is sporty. If she invited me to run a 20 km race with her, without the possibility of an emergency exit or of being able to withdraw, or of going back, I would be at great risk of injuring myself or even putting my life in danger. The same goes for the mind. I can impose complex reasoning on a friend who does not engage in this type of experience in the same way that a child is not taught abstract mathematical theorems from the outset.
So I’m going to go and make myself a nice hot chocolate and hopefully, I’ll find some comfort in it. What about you?
