the sporadically unbearable loneliness of being human

emaux? who moi?

i think i should clarify..i woke up the other day feeling lonely and alienated and this was pretty much the first thing i did. after a cigarette. i might come over as incredibly emo and in need of a shrink – and some days i am, but the thing is, a) i have one and b) this is the stuff i really feel the need (and i feel it hard) to express – i wanna be heard..we all do. but i’m not permanently morbid – i have been known to crack a crooked grin from time to time ;p

    Man, I’m so with you. Sometimes the alienation hits me like a wall. And you drew it perfectly: an alien being trying to tune in. Not blend in, just… understand.

    It amazes me, considering how many misfits there are, that we (humans) still end up so lonely so much. It says a lot about us as a species, as individuals, as societies… Like somehow we just keep braking down the tower of babel or something. I’ve always been utterly fascinated bt loneliness/alienation – it’s my favourite thing to photograph.

      True true. It’s not a sense of loneliness in a traditional sense. I don’t want to change my ways to fit in, I am happy with the moomin way. But… it would be nice to understand the desires and motivations of people that surround me every day. And as it is now, I don’t.

        yah i agree with both of you. but do you see alienation as an inherently bad thing?

          i mean, it’s all a social construct really, the whole concept of loneliness. we are bombarded daily with media basically telling us to find a mate asap. they make us think we are “un-able” and can’t function properly if we’re on our own. what a load of bollocks! i for one think loneliness isnt bad at all, its just what everyone makes of it that puts it in a bad light.

    You probably already know… But I TOTALLY know how you feel. Its hard. And lonely sometimes. Also totally get that art/blogs/etc can wind up making folks look even more emo than you are in reality…
    Im still known to crack a joke with a lil smile on occasion too, though most days you’d never know it from my blog.
