Alone is most frequently mistaken for loneliness; loneliness is a state that is created from within one’s self and typically is projected or masked by being with others. For example, a person who has a lack of self-love and worth, will crowd their life with other people to “mask” their true feelings. They created an illusion that they are not feeling “lonely” or “empty” by physically being with other people; and since their external world looks “full”, they trick themselves into thinking they are not lonely.

What is the difference between “Lonely” and “Alone”

Lonely is an empty feeling that is inside of you, a longing to feel loved, worthy, and whole.
Alone is a state of contentment, where no matter if you are by yourself or other people, the feeling of contentment doesn’t change because WE ARE AL-ONE (all one).
Have to get move from “loneness” to “AL-ONE”
Have you ever felt the urge to run away from yourself and crowd yourself with a group of your friends, even though you really don’t feel like socializing? Have you ever been so terrified when plans were cancelled and you were left to hang out with yourself? Can you remember the last moment you had a LOVE-Day for yourself? When was your last ME-Party?
You are not “alone” if you have felt this way before; many people are uncomfortable with being “alone” and would rather be surrounded by others. Don’t shame yourself or feel bad for not wanting to be “alone”, but take a deep breath and take this in:
When you are WHOLE and CONTENT with yourself, you should feel the same feelings when you are around others or by yourself. If you are disconnected from your “true-self” (your inner guide) and filled with unworthiness and have a lack of self-love, you will feel lonely even when you are with a group of your friends. Others do not make us happy, worthy, loved, or fulfilled; those feelings come from our inner-self (not for an outside source).

It’s time for a ME-Party!

Plan an evening of just being with you and pamper and LOVE yourself! Until you can truly LOVE you and be CONTENT and WHOLE with yourself, the loneness will continue to live inside of you. If you want to replace the “loneliness” with “AL-ONE”, than it’s time to BE STILL and fall in LOVE with yourself!
