The worst cruelty that can be inflicted on a human being is isolation.
I was not popular in school, and I was definitely not a ladies' man. And I had a very painful adolescence, because it was all very strange to me. It wasn't like I got beat up, but the humiliation and isolation, and the existential 'God, I exist, and nobody cares' of being a teenager were extremely pronounced for me.
Solitude vivifies; isolation kills.
Solitude, isolation, are painful things and beyond human endurance.

We don't function well as human beings when we're in isolation.
