Loneliness is such a strong word. According to dictionary.com, Lonely meant: unhappy as a result of being without the companionship of other.
It's strange that I feel lonely even though I have 7 siblings and live with my boyfriend. I have the best boyfriend that any girl can ask for, but yet I am lonely. I love my boyfriend and the thought of not having him around scares me.
As much as he loves me, I still feel that I am alone because I have no connection with my family. It bothers me that I have 7 siblings, but yet I feel like an orphan. I have better connection and more things in common with a random stranger at the supermarket than my own family member. I have always thought that blood run very thick and there is no bond stronger than family.
Perhaps in my case, nurture is much stronger than nature.
