That make me feel alone. I moved to Australia when I was 30 years old. A difficult age to start a new life, meet and make new friends and I am single. Although I have my closest family here with me in the most isolated city in the world I still feel very alone at times.
I would go, as far as to say it’s been the loneliest time of my life.
I do however enjoy my own company but that has come with time. I feel I may have been forced into that through spending so much time alone due to the isolation of where I have chosen to live.
I wasn’t very comfortable being alone in the beginning because then life became confronting. Isolation brought time on my own to reflect on my life and where my future was going. Being alone unsurfaced past traumatic life events, followed by negative emotional behaviour and withdrawal from society itself, making an isolated city even more isolating.
