It's scary to be alone, but at the same we can get used to it... But we need more than ourselves. We need to share and feel that we're not alone, that we're not crazy, that there's hope beyond our own thoughts. Sometimes we are left with just ourselves, only and just ourselves, and despite the many conversations and theories one can come up with, we need to be proven we exist, we need to be proven that we matter.

So here's the thought for the evening. We matter, always.

Even if you're confined to a room, a bed, a hard reality or just a very simple unattached life, you matter, and the proof of that is that, at any moment we can change our reality. We can choose to be silent and away, but we can later choose to speak loudly, to dance or feel another person. We can choose what to feel because our thoughts matter. Prison is ultimately a state of mind, but be "mindful" that it's very easy to live as if in a prison. You might not have guards watching over every step you give and big walls to keep you hidden, but you can still live in a prison from Life and its challenges.

What does it feel like to be confined for so long and then set free? One of the 'Angola 3' men, Robert King, was released in 2001 - after spending 29 years in total isolation. He described his experience to the BBC in an interview three years ago.
