What Would Eleanor Do: Know the difference between being alone and lonely

Some days I feel very lonely.  Most of the time I just feel alone because I am.  Today is a lonely day.

I was thinking about Eleanor today and her life.  Despite being married and having five children, I imagine that she felt lonely at times.  How could she not?  I mean, her husband had a long-term affair with his secretary.  They lived separate lives.  He died with his mistress and not his wife.

Ugh, I don’t know what any of this means for me.  All I can say is that today I left lonely not alone.  Thankfully, I know that this is a temporary feeling.  My life is filled with amazing people who inspire and support me.  Without this knowledge, days like today would be very difficult to get through.  However, I know that in the morning my outlook on the world will be very different than it was today.
