There is a difference between loneliness (being isolated or cut off from others) and being alone (being on your own).
For your entire life, you have been living with the best friend you could ever have - yourself. Unfortunately, most of us have lived our lives totally oblivious to that fact, and so, when we are on our own, we feel lonely. Some of us actually treat ourselves as the enemy.
It doesn't have to be that way.
One of the possible outcomes of living alone is finding out who you really are. I say one of the possible outcomes deliberately, because there are others, and you need to make a deliberate choice to embark on a journey of self-discovery.
I encourage you to make that choice, simply because the alternatives, like loneliness, depression and alcoholism, are not all that enjoyable. And suicide is final - you don't get to reconsider it after the fact, at least not in this dimension.
