Life is essentially lonely.
Our LORD God is truly the only one we can "talk" to about everything that is in our heart. I praise Him for His gift of life, and thus access into His presence.
It is an amazing truth "that we are seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus"

[4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— 6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in  kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. Eph 2:4-7 ESV]

All of humanity seeks a person or thing that fills the loneliness in us - a loneliness brought about when Eve chose to walk independent of her creator.

We seek to fill that hole with friends, marriage, sex, money, drugs or power.  Also I think we seek mind numbing activity found in many of the games we play. 

Some of the above things are not 'wrong' in themselves, but they don't fill the loneliness.

Not in the highest and best, or  lowest and most base do we find an antidote to our true, bottom line  ALONENESS in the universe.

Only in the LORD Jesus Christ does it begin to be filled - and that isn't just instant and finished for all time.  It is a relationship we need to build but different from all other relationships.  We are building a relationship of faith, with one unseen, but who is, and who loves us.  We find him in spending time in his love letters to us, called the Bible, in talking to him, and learning to listen to his answers.  His answers are found in many ways, but all are through our seeking him and learning to know his heart and way, in obedience to what he tells us in his word.
