Rather be Hated than Lonely
Loneliness is the first thing that God's eye named, not good. The soul fears emptiness so much that it will rather be hated, despised, and have enemies than remain empty, without anyone. A lonely man has no one to share anything with. At least one that is despised by his enemies can share his thoughts with them. His thoughts are not alone, but they are shared. He knows that there are others who learned of his thoughts. They may hate him, but at least he knows there are others with whom he shared a portion his soul. Loneliness is the only feeling that can never be shared with another. What horror. Loneliness is the dominant feeling of life, it is our main feeling. We are born alone, we live alone, and we die alone. Everything else that we do in life that involve other people, are only illusions, only distractions from the fact that we are alone. Friendship is only an illusion, that for a moment, we are not alone. Those who cannot find those that like them, will seek out after those who hate them. Because the horror of a vacuum is too much. We would rather have enemies that hate us than not have anyone at all.
