The Opposite of Loneliness

The Opposite of Loneliness

«We don’t have a word for the opposite of loneliness, but if we did, I could say that’s what I want in life. […] It’s not quite love and it’s not quite community; it’s just this feeling that there are people, an abundance of people, who are in this together. Who are on your team.» A beautiful short essay, and heartbreaking to read that the author, 22 years old, died in an accident just a few days after writing it.
