Solitude is beautiful.
But no one will escape loneliness without a teacher.
Become aware of what is behind the mask,
And help others become aware of it.
At times to run seems like the best solution.
Or to hide out with others.
Learning about solitude can teach you a thing or two about isolation and being lonely and being in that body all by yourself.
So, don’t think for one second you can hide any of it by wearing a mask.
But today, COVID-19 and ‘the mask’ is an important symbol of loneliness.
And more of us need to reach out to others with the tools of our survival: physical distancing,self-isolation, masks, gloves, even toilet paper.
No one ever said loneliness had to be just loneliness.
Sometimes it can be creative, curious, fun, associated with helping yourself and others by learning to ‘do no harm’.
