Loneliness, most of us, have experienced or are still experiencing it.
Some of us chat or hang out with other people or have none. However, you still feel lonely.
The irony in that.
Aren’t you not supposed to feel lonely even though you meet and hang out with other people?
When I think of loneliness the first thing that pops in mind is someone who stays away and doesn’t connect with anyone.
However, you can still feel lonely even when you are hanging out or meeting new people.
The main reason is the lack of connection
Dealing With It
📌 Talking to Strangers-
People are social animals, and we seek connection.
So go to places you like. Then make eye contact and smile at people. If they make eye contact and smile at you, talk to them because you never know who you might meet.
📌 Go Volunteer-
You can go online and look at events requiring volunteers—volunteer for events that match your interests or stuff you enjoy.
You get to meet new people; however, it allows you to connect with people who possibly have similar interests as you.
For example, I’m an endurance athlete.
I volunteer for running and OCR events. During those time, I meet new people, and it gives me a chance to improve my social skills.
📌 Self Perception-
Sometimes it is your self-talk that makes you feel worse than it is.
“I’m going to sound dumb.”
“This person won’t like me.”
“They seem busy, and I don’t want to disturb them.”
“I’m not good at this.”
So change it to.
“No matter what happens, I’m going to be okay.”
“I deserve the best and I demand my best”.
📌 Self Love-
Treat yourself every once in a while. Suppose you like dancing or enjoying ice cream. Do it.
Take a walk out in nature and take in the fresh air. Allow your body to de-stress and relax. Do stuff that you enjoy and get busy. Don’t be so harsh on yourself and reward yourself.
Loneliness is something most of us struggle with. Sometimes I experience it from time to time. Just realize the fact you aren’t missing anything, your whole and complete. That no matter what, I’m going to be okay and reach my destination.
