Quotes by Kristen Radtke  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Loneliness if often exacerbated by a perception that one is lonely while everyone else is connected. It's exaggerated by a sensation of being outside something that others seem to be in on: a family, a couple, a friendship, a joke.
Perhaps now we can learn how flawed that kind of thinking is, because loneliness is one of the most universal things any person can feel.”
Kristen Radtke, Seek You: A Journey Through American Loneliness

“Lonely people tend to scoop out larger spaces of isolation to burrow into by cutting themselves off from others - triggering the self-fulfilling prophecy of preventing rejection by avoiding opportunities for connection. Bonds are weakened, contact is reduced, loneliness fissures outward.”
Kristen Radtke, Seek You: A Journey Through American Loneliness

“Perhaps we see loneliness in others simply to feel less lonely ourselves.”
Kristen Radtke, Seek You: A Journey Through American Loneliness
