Loneliness is painful. Painful even if you used to it.
Can you actually used to being lonely? Maybe. Sooner or later you have accept it and live with it not letting it destroy you. It takes courage.
I had a difficult time to take this picture but I took it anyway. Ego? Selfishness? Maybe. I even returned back and took more pictures. This man didn’t care because in his reality I didn’t exist, I was just a fixture.
I stepped into his reality for a few moments without his permission. He let me do it. I was immensely grateful.
