Loneliness is a feeling of detachment from pleasurable past experiences.
Separation from close members of the family, a familiar living environment or culture are among the predisposing factors that lead to thoughts of loneliness.
In the abscence of a community supporting system loneliness may contribute to affective disorders such as depression. Loneliness is common among immigrants and refugeees.
This painting reflects an attractive, sad young woman whose melancholic thoughts are being carried beyond the water valley in search of comfort from positive and happy past experiences.
