Let's talk loneliness here a moment, shall we? I think there are so many of us feeling a bit lonely as the holidays approach. What I've found about loneliness is that it doesn't really matter how many friends you have in your life. Some people do have friends, but they don't feel as if people really know them, or they don't feel a strong connection. These people perhaps don't need to find more friends, but they do need to learn how to get to know the people in their life in such a way that will chase that loneliness away.
For other folks, finding new friends may be the answer. Either way, know that loneliness is a temporary situation. You can change it! It might be really awful right now, but hang on, because with a little work on your part things could be much brighter for you down the road.
First step? Some motivation. That's where these quotes on loneliness should help. At the very least they will help remind you that other people, even famous folks, have felt loneliness in the past. It isn't just you. At most, perhaps these quotes will give you a nudge to get out a bit more so you can meet a few more people. That's how friendships start, just by getting out and interacting with people.
