Loneliness vs Being Alone

What is the difference between loneliness and being alone?
Thanks for your answer - MK
Thank you for your question MK
Loneliness is a state of mind, an internal state of negativity and you carry it with your wherever you are and with whoever you are with! You might be in a room with 100 people and still feel lonely!
Being alone is always a temporary state, which you have full control over, since you can choose to stop being alone and meet up with someone!
Loneliness is a state that destroys your joy and life, since it makes you feel unwanted, not good enough, worthless, unlovable and unhappy!
But it is your choice, an internal choice to view the world as a hostile place to live in!
Giving yourself alone time on the other hand is a prerequisite for growth! It will give you time to read your books, do your meditation, etc for personal development and growth.
Loneliness is a feeling, which stems from your negative thoughts!
Being alone is a choice and it is an action!
Have a good day!
