Fear of being alone

People around the world fear lonliness.  They run away. They make up alibis.  They fill their lives with things that are temporary.. loud.. and get into the crowds to run away from being alone.  Alone with ones ownself is the scariest scenario for most.

One friend’s mother died and father could not bear the loss.  A friend has lost all love for her spouse and is alone in this world – with no one to share emotions with.  We are all looking for crutches.

Often people brandish certificates and awards as their mark of accomplishment.. of how they defeated a crowd.  But really is that a distinction?  Or is winning over your fear or your ownself?

What do you do when you are alone?
