What is Loneliness?

Firstly, loneliness is a term to describe a behaviour of dwelling in solitude destitute of sympathetic or friendly companionship. Thus, such an aberration from normalcy can be a red flag condition in your personal growth chart. Hence, it is a complex emotion marked by a sad feeling to evade social gathering, be aloof even in crowd and disconnect from the present.
