Being alone and being lonely get grouped together most of the time. To me, these two concepts are on opposite sides of the world. I like my alone time, probably too much. It took me a while to get to a point where I was content with being alone. I have grown accustomed to being alone now. Being alone is not being lonely. Being alone is having you time; it is watching your favorite movie cuddled up in bed, it is reading a book, it is having your morning cup of coffee by yourself. However, my like for being alone led me to loneliness. Loneliness is craving human interaction, whether it be touch, conversation, or even eye contact. Loneliness is not good company. Loneliness is a sea of darkness that is easy to disappear into, as if there is no escape.
