Been to a party where everyone is happy and you are by the corner, not because you don't know people there but the setting of the party doesn't suit you. Have you ever been with your relatives and all that is happening around, you can't relate. Suddenly you have this feeling of not belonging, You just want to be put off and sit by the corner. Its not okay to feel this way, though at times its good for us to be left alone to ponder about our future, but when this desire becomes constant with no benefit, it becomes a thing of concern.
That constant feeling of wanting to be alone always is what we call loneliness.

Loneliness has been a challenge for both the young and old, single and engaged, rich and poor and it has no boundary. Cases of loneliness has been undermined in young and old people. I call them the vulnerable ones, being neglected because we feel they have no reason to be lonely. I once heard someone told a friend how her teenager daughter said she was lonely, how she dismissed her and they both laughed. I felt bad, knowing such dismissal is detrimental, It could result in the child being secretive and further alienating from people.
The older people are often neglected with this stereotype feeling of them, having enjoyed the world and so they don't need much association with people anymore. This often throw me into a quest for answer, does loneliness have any age limit ?
There is no age limit, anyone could feel lonely.

All of this should be out of mind. Taking yourself to the park or involving in outdoor activities like hiking, skating or playing games could also help us shake off loneliness.

Visiting destitute centers and donating to charity is another way of expressing our love to others. Be willing to help others and watch your mode heighten.
