ALL BY MYSELF

All By Myself’ explores the effects of loneliness on the mind and spirit as when we’re caught up in the inescapable, dark ocean of our internal ruminations. This project seeks to raise awareness of the UK’s growing loneliness epidemic as more people than ever are suffering from its consequences. Loneliness is likely to affect all of us at some point in our lives. It can hit anyone at any time and it is not only distressing, but is implicated in health problems such as an increased risk of heart disease. This led me to carry out research and create this project exploring the problem through Buddhism. As a Buddhist, I believe these have been caused by the mind’s tendency to cling to the past or to fret about the future. We have to identify this stage our mind goes through and to realise we have to let it go and concentrate on the present.
