Solitude or Loneliness

Language has created the word ‘loneliness’ to express the pain of being alone.
And it has created the word ‘solitude’ to express the glory of being alone.

    Yes, it’s a fine line, isn’t it? But being thankful in whatever state I am in is the secret to happiness I think.

    Also true. I love my solitude but when I have too much time by myself, I still can get lonely! Have not had the chance to feel lonely in a very long time though – I kind of miss it! And I really miss solitude!
