"How do you know someone is lonely?" This is a question asked by an 88 year old woman today. I was very surprised she came out with this question. I responded, "I do not know whether a person is lonely or not, unless he/she shares his/her feelings with me."
She continued by saying "Am I lonely?" I do not know but I do feel lonesome once awhile. The word "lonesome" is a word that can be delved in-depth. How does a person interprets the feeling of "lonesome?"
