Loneliness is real. The rich suffer from it and everyone can be victim of loneliness.

Even children suffer from loneliness too. Back in the good old days, just few years ago, I'm talking about before the advent of digital generation. These olds time are not even far from today. Just as far back as 1980, when musicians sings from  the heart and really mean what they say in their songs.

When loyalty was the order of the day, boys chase girls for 5, 6 months just to fine his way into her heart. When she finally say, yes! They end up marrying each other.

Those days when kids run around the neighbourhood, play until night fall and sun dawn send them to their happy home. Kids get rewarded for good behaviour while today kids get rewarded for bad behaviour.

You could go across the street, to your neighbour house to borrow a cup of sugar, matches, salt, when a good turn deserves another.
When everybody entire community – village raise kids in the neighbourhood. When you skip school your neighbour report you to your mom, and you get home your mom says, I'm going to report you to your dad when he gets home to teach a lessons.

When parents do their job not expecting teachers to do for their children what is expected of them.

The good old days when boys will fight openly until their tongue start dangling out of their mouth, got tired of fighting separate themselves and become two best friends after the fight. 

I'm talking about the good old days when everyone was their neighbourhood watch, when your neighbour was your camera, who watches over your house, kids while you away. When it was a shame to steal, integrity was honour and dignity of labour pride.

The old days yes talking of the good old days. We all thought the advent of cell phone would have aid effective communication; rather we are worst communicator nowadays. Technology is turning people to robot. Many folks have robotic mind now living out of reality.

Technology is isolating people, although we reside within community but we're constantly isolated and loneliness has become a common disease infesting a large member of people.

We are created as a social being and man exist within community of people. His happiness wholeness comes from community. Strengthen the bond that bring you happiness and make healthy friends that bring you closer to folks. Find inner healing and remember prayer heals the hearts.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”.” Matthew 11: 28-30

"We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men." – Herman Melville
