about this painting:
Loneliness in the Fog
Leonid Afremov has created many outstanding paintings of such genres as:
- Seascapes and water;
- Portraits of people and animals, etc.
In this beautiful landscape canvas by Leonid Afremov we see a lonely figure of a woman walking in the park. She is holding an umbrella trying to stay warm and dry because it’s raining. However, is it really the rain she’s hiding from or is there something else she doesn’t want us to see?
Fears and Joys of Loneliness
At some point in our life loneliness is inevitable; however, the realization and acceptance of it bring us happiness. For the majority of people loneliness is a very frightening thing, or at least that’s how they see it. One of the most terrifying pictures we can ever imagine is to be left without our family or friends, without their attention, support and love. In our society built on the principles of social competition, to be lonely means to lose. That’s why society makes sure there were no “losers” by encouraging expanding and strengthening of social contacts with the help of state, religious and professional holidays, entertaining and sports events, such as Eurovision, the Olympics and different world championships, TV, Internet- they all help to unite people. It is really difficult to feel lonely if you’re surrounded by happy people, people who care about you and love you. That’s what we are aiming for- to surround ourselves with those who are involved in our life. However, let’s look at the problem of loneliness at a different angle. Why are we so afraid to be lonely even for a short time? Why are we so scared to be alone with ourselves?
The fear of loneliness
We all have our fears and worries. No matter how great our life might be, it doesn’t mean we are satisfied with it. Behind our success and achievements we usually hide our inner failures and defeats. We don’t have time to solve our internal, or mental, problems and put them aside as we have mistakenly think that all our social deeds (professional or political) are far more important. Our inner stress becomes the inevitable result of our situation: we are unhappy with ourselves and our life. We leave a lot of questions without an answer as well as problems without a solution because we don’t want to take responsibility these matters. After some time our life turns into hell. We can’t stand spending a minute alone in silence, because if we do, all of our worries and fears start to come out and fill our head. That’s why we are so afraid of loneliness. We need some distractions in order to prevent us from thinking about our worries. That’s why we never let go of our phone or keep the TV on as they help us kills the voices in our head.
The Joy and happiness of loneliness
Do we really need to be so scared of loneliness? It is indeed our integral quality. Nobody will ever be able to completely understand us, not our friends, husband or wife, not even our mother. Then the realization of our loneliness is not a tragedy! It’s more of a reason to give up on our illusions and stop holding on to other people. Children need their mothers in order to survive, and then they grow up. Then why do we continue relying on other people all our life? An adult can always cope with his problems as life never sets an impossible task for us. We are always so afraid to lose that we hardly realize our full potential with all its power. As soon as we accept that we are not afraid to be lonely, we stop seeking for someone’s approval and understanding, trying to prove what we are right. We set ourselves completely free! You don’t owe anything to anyone and nobody owes you anything. You’re an ordinary person as well as all other people on this planet. You live your life and let others live theirs. And most importantly, you’re not afraid to be alone with yourself! That’s the real joy of loneliness!
Who knows, maybe this particular painting will help you accept your loneliness and set you free?
