I think that everyone is profoundly alone.

No one can ever truly experience what it's like to be someone else and be inside someone else's mind. Everyone is essentially alone inside their own minds.

No amount of friendly gossiping; chatting, arranging meetings; going to clubs; going to parties and family gatherings will ever change this.

Ever since I was small, I've seen people mysterious and unique individuals, that can never really be fully understood.

I believe that one can only ever get glimpses of this deep mystery.

Perhaps it's comforting for others to believe that they understand others and their motivations on a superficial and simple level.

This is why I believe that no one can ever fully understand anyone or appreciate anyone else, even after years of getting to know the other person. There will always be a silent thought that hasn't been mentioned yet.

Perhaps, but being the only one in an empty room is being "alone."

Loneliness is deepest felt when you are surrounded by people but feel isolated.

At least physically being by yourself makes the feeling of being alone justified.
