Solitude is not Loneliness

I have a sweet man friend who came up to me at a music hall and asked if he could join me because I looked lonely!

I replied that far from truth I enjoy watching others and being on my own was not lonely.

Having had a partner , with whom I felt lonely, the pain of loneliness was acute from no contact with our sons .

But as my knowledge grew of this loneliness, I realized I would die of it and that was the objective of ex , and making peace within , I surrendered loneliness and birthdays and holidays and his never ending control and abuse long after the finale divorce .

I never knew lonely is such depth until all I knew and loved in my family was removed to serve him and his dark shadow

“Solitude isn’t loneliness. Solitude is when the entire serene universe seems to surround and hold you quietly.”

― Victoria Erickson

Solitude is not about avoiding being with other people. It’s about being with yourself. In the words of Lao Tzu: ‘Ordinary men hate solitude. But the Master makes use of it, embracing his aloneness, realising he is one with the whole universe.’

The solution is to know thyself. When you connect with your essence and live your individual truth, you will find happiness. That connection demands you to move within and embrace aloneness.

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
