An opinion of the world around me

The Loneliness

with 2 comments

I am finally settled in my apartment in the new city. Packers have moved, taps are working and food is cooking. Last two weeks went by at such a frentic pace, I didn’t have any time to stop and think. Now that I have, the realization strikes slowly. I am all alone.

Loneliness is a very wierd thing. Sometimes you have no one around and still you won’t feel it. Sometimes there are lots of people around and you would still feel lonely. Mysterious!

Coming back to situation at hand, I have come to realize the importance of family. With time it’s not as easy to make new friends. Work becomes priority which does not give you time enough to socialize. It’s not that you can’t, it’s just that the chances and the instances and the zeal decreases.

Here is where family comes in. If you shift to a new place with your family, I guess it’s not as strange a feeling. You don’t have to form social/friends circle on urgent basis just to pass the evenings. You don’t have to go shoppings alone. You don’t feel that pang of strandedness.

Moving to a new city, to a new job is teaching me new lessons daily. I think next time I make my move, I’ll try and have my family with me.

  1. loneliness is not a very bad thing if its self feels like misery in a crowd when you know you are an odd fit..and new cities suck after the shifting is over, you suddenly realise you are miles away from all that you ever cared about..

    • Very true Mrinalini. Also the thing is once doesn’t even realize how loner has one become. The migrant working junta these days are so away from the family and relatives. You know when I go to my hometown and my parents ask me to attend any marriage function, say, I feel uneasy. It’s wierd.
