Loneliness, is incredibly hard.

There are so many people in this world suffering, with no-one who cares, no-one who understands, no-one to hold their hand.

Mother Teresa said human loneliness, having no one to care, being forgotten, is a worse form of suffering than starving and she is right. Continue reading
