Ever been in a situation where you are in the midst of hundreds of people yet you feel lonely. Sitting at a coffee shop watching other people, going to a movie theater without a friend, walking into a mall alone? Not everyone will be able to connect with these situations but there are quite a few people out there who know what I mean. Sometimes having everything is not enough, money can’t buy people or relationships. Even when you have everything, life feels empty.
There are also some of us who have a big group of friends with whom we hang out quite often. But do you feel lonely even when you have company. Sometimes you can be friends with someone for a very long time and yet they won’t know anything about you. Sometimes having no one by your side is better than having superficial friends.
I guess it all comes down to leading a meaningful life. Make room for meaningful people in your life, which will involve making room for life outside of work. Which in turn will involve setting your priorities right and so on. Our life is a result of choices we make, our happiness or misery shows where we stand in our decision making abilities.
