Solitude is…

Solitude is knowing that, however important people are to you, no matter how much you love them, no matter how much you need them, you don’t matter anywhere near as much to them.

Solitude is knowing that, when you are at your lowest, the people you rely on to lift your spirits and give you a reason to live will avoid you, or be too busy to prioritize you.

Solitude is knowing, that despite the pain it inflicts upon you, that you are just not that significant a part of your loved one’s lives.

Solitude is knowing you won’t be discovered until a strange smell emenates from your flat.
