Janis Joplin is arguably one of the most famous female singing icons in the world. Her determined gusto was unparalleled. She was notorious for giving each and every performance all of her heart and soul. With a chronic drug and alcohol abuse problem, she was also taking a toll on her mind and body. Janis Joplin was open about her experiences with mental health struggles. The singer’s career was short as she died at the young age of 27. Before she died, she quipped one of her most famous lines in any interview that she gave. “On stage, I make love to 25,000 different people,” Janis Joplin said, “then I go home alone.”

The world population clock calculates that we are almost at 7.6 billion people alive on planet earth. On the only planet that we know of so far, with the only species of our kind that we are aware of, with a modern technology that connects us at faster speeds in more realistic ways than ever before in history, we feel alone. We are not alone, but we feel alone.

Our feelings of loneliness are pervasive. Feelings of loneliness can contribute to feelings of depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts,and more. Loneliness is nothing more than a convincing illusion. We believe that our experiences are the only one of their kind. We fall for the belief that nobody else in the world has gone through, seen, felt, or thought the same things we have. Loneliness, and the potential truth of loneliness, is the greatest fear any of us have. We know, at our core, that we are not alone. Yet, when we get afraid of being alone, we truly become afraid that perhaps it really is true; it is true that we can be all alone in this world and that truth has finally come for our lives. We are alone. We are convinced of it.

We feel alone because it is part of the human condition to feel alone. Recovery, from our past traumas, addictions, and other mental health issues, helps us learn we are not alone. You’re not alone. You never have to feel alone again.Call The Guest House Ocala today for information on our residential treatment programs for traumas, addictions, and related mental health issues: 1-855-483-7800
