In this world are we really alone?? Are we really the only one who care about our self?? Almost at once everyone jumps up and answers "No,I have friends or girlfriends and so i'm not alone". But how many of your friends are going to put your business before theirs? Most of them first finish their jobs and if they have extra time help you. Some of you will say,"No I have my parents". But are your parents always going to be their for you?? So guys wat do you think are we really alone???

It depends how you define "alone". To me, since there are germs, insects, animals, and plants always around (and whoever knows what, spiritually speaking)...I could never say I was alone. Sure, very few humans are ever "there" for me...or if they are, it never usually lasts. Not my parents, not any family, not loves, not friends, no one. But that does not make me "alone", in my view. I can feel some semblance of lone-ness, holed up in my room...for peace. But that's not really true "aloneness". *shrugs*

True ALONE-ness is when there's not another living thing for some distance all around you. It's not impossible, but it's not common. Loneliness on the other hand, is simply feeling as if you're the only person or living thing around, (with conditions, usually "who understands, who gets what I'm going through, who's like me)...which hasn't alot to do with true aloneness -- which is why I don't feel lonely. I don't understand the emotion, therefore I don't feel it. xD It's not logical.

No, siddharthjeevan......we are not lonely....people around us cares about us. It is just that our friends or parents need to doing something that is more important. It doesn't means that they do not care about you. Think in positive way, if they can't even solve their problems, how will they help you?

Yes they will be there for us sometimes but they won't be there for us all the time. The only one who is there all the time for us is our self

Mother and new born - Are we really born alone?
Well technically we are born to this world alone but then agin were not becuse the first person we are handed to after our birth is our mother and she is usually with us through out the course of our lives and she is with us during our development through pregnancy, and if shes a loving mom she will be with us through out our lives even after we leave the nest so for some maybe they might consider themselves alone but to others they are not I think it depends on the circumstance's of there birth. Now I cant speak for everyone, but I believe strongly that my parents will be there for me until they leave this world witch hopfully wont be for a very long time, and whenever that time comes I still will have my sisters, and maybe a husband and children myself so when my time comes to leave this world I will be surrounded by people who love me and I can carry that love with me till the end, so for me I dont believe that everyone is really born alone it just depends on the circumstance's of there birth, and what gods plan is for that person, and that will determine whether they will be born truly alone, I think being alone or feeling alone for some people is a state of mine, and not always completely true.

Yes,friend.You are right.We all are alone and no one will stay together with us forever.People will die too like as our parent and our lover will die too in one day that we dont know.That's time we will really feel and sure that we are actually alone.

YES, I think we are alone. And by this "alone" I mean on the mental degree. I mean we are all different, and even the closest friends can be at odds. I believe there will be someone always be there for you, but I don't believe there will be someone totally understand you.

In my view all people are alone. people thinks they have friends, parents, children, wife so they are not alone. I think it is their feeling only. of any persom some who cares and love is that person self. You may have experienced and read news taht when on critical position people thinks only about self just a saving life, getting food on most hunger time. People love self much more than others if person says he/she love other than him/her i think that is find of cheating other

we are alone in the sense of being alone! just being yourself. and yes we must always care for ourself!!! we must first take care of ourselves than before others do. right. because we are the the owner of our personalitya nd our self. its nice to help out but much nicer to first have more time first and care and understands our self more than going to help out to others. thanks friend... jhelai

Alone of what? If being alone physically it should be possible but in another why its not. Why I say that, its because of one this, God never left you alone, his every where no matter what you do even the mere fact you can't see him. Maybe I should also agree to you of being alone on this world. Why, because if nobody surround you anymore and nobody to call any person, that only means you alone in terms on relationship by other people. But to sum my answer, nobody is alone on this world, everything is setup to rely on each other.

These sort of questions are subjective. You could have five girlfriends and all the money in the world but insist that you're still lonely. I sometimes see people with limbs missing or bedridden and really sick but they're happier than ever. It amazes me, these people. Parents are never going to be there for us forever. People have to die eventually, or they're going to get so sick you have to start taking care of them. Friends are only what they are - friends. Sometimes friends put themselves in front of you. You can't trust them with your lives. Take your life into your hands - you don't need people to depend on.

Hi Sidharthjeevan, Well what I always say is that the only person you can truly rely on is yourselves and we even let ourselves down at times too eh! It is lovely to have the support of friends and family though. Huggles. Ellie :D

I think we are sort of alone in this world. People say no man is an island and I think it's true up to a point. I think for me, at least loneliness is something that is not avoidable. It is there, but how you make time to succumb yourself with activities and friends if there are and surround yourself with family members and appreciate them while they are still there. Sometimes I find myself saying all these easily but it doesn't come easy. Loneliness is something to do with depression and in my definition, if we succumb ourselves to be depressed by it, we are part of that whole darkness thing. So, whenever I feel a tad lonely, I'll surround myself with activities. I admire those people that have no one in the world for them but they make the best out of everything. Those people have the utmost respect from me, definitely.

Each one of us take different path in life you may say you are alone but there are people who love you to help you go through life may it be not all the time but there is always someone who is willing to go through the path with you. You also have to do your part in this world and be there for someone who needed your presence so that person wont think the same way as you do. It takes one to know one. Be there for someone and that someone will be there for you and with that you will never be alone.

no , tere are other living beings also , but we had left the mostly thousands of year ago. but we still leave with some of them like dog's , cat, horses, monkeys, elephants etc. may be one or two of the animals listed by me should be in your home , if you were talking about the earth & left universe . then also we were not alone , becoz there were other living beings(we named them as aliens) on others planet , galaxy's , why they dont come on earth is due to ifferent sorroundings. we are made up of higly compacted atoms which we cant see with naked eyes , now think that , why we had been build such with mind , hands, did our such type of thinking lead to any succes to humans. sorry , my posts takes a different path, but i am only presenting my views.

I think we all come on this earth alone, there are reasons which makes us take birth and reasons when we die.we come here alone because when we die we dont take with us anyone except ourselves.I think we are alone whole of our lives only thing we get is people around us to complete the empty life around us.but at last we go alone.
