What is wisdom?

I read an article that connects notions of wisdom with loneliness. In the article, loneliness is defined this way: “Loneliness does not mean being alone; loneliness does not mean not having friends. […] Loneliness is defined as ‘subjective distress.’ Essentially, it is the perceived gap between the relationships you have and the ones you want.”

On the other hand, wisdom is defined as “a complex human trait with specific components — i.e., emotional regulation, self-reflection, pro-social behaviors such as empathy and compassion, decisiveness, social advising, tolerance of divergent values, and spirituality.”

For myself, it is useful to have a more clear understanding of “what is wisdom?” and its effect on subjective distress.
