Opposite of Loneliness

From Award-Winning Author Marina Keegan

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. What I’m grateful and thankful to have found at Yale, and what I’m scared of losing when we wake up tomorrow and leave this place.”
