I think there's a difference between Loneliness & being Alone. I prefer to be Alone yet I am not Lonely. Sometimes I am uncomfortable around people. If I was missing someone or wanting another company then I'd be lonely. By being alone I can let my mind wander where ever it chooses. I don't have to come up with some small talk to ease the silence. I can talk to myself as often as I choose, which I do anyway whether or not people are around. I think there's nothing wrong with someone who enjoys being alone. It's also possible to be alone while in the company of another. That too can be enjoyable. To be together enjoying the silence with one another.
