It’s a feeling we have all felt. That sinking feeling that you are alone in a group of people, that you are unwanted, annoying or unloved. Loneliness has been found to be strongly correlated with depression. Andrew Solomon even comments that depression is a disease of loneliness.
So recently I read ‘The psychology of the girl with the dragon tattoo’. Alot of the concepts spoken about in this book, can be applied to all of us, not just Lisbeth Salander. This post talks about the importance of being alone. and why we should all spend more time alone.
