Dear Xing T ...

sirer (先生) :

Dear Xing

Thanks for your reply.you said living alone does not mean lonely, but human is a social being, is it possible for a person live alone for life and remain mentally healthy? I really doubt it.
If a person does not follow a social norm, then it must be difficult for this person to find a sense of belonging, am I wrong?
Then, any tips for a person who does not follow social norm or even 'weird' to the 'main stream' to find belonging?

Damien Lu :

Living alone and loneliness are also two seperate things. Some people living alone are indeed lonely but some are very active socially.

Yes you are wrong; a person does not have to follow social norm in order to find a sense of belonging. Such a person can find belonging with other people who do not follow social norm. Your problem is that you believe there is only one norm, and that is simple not true.
