We can define loneliness as sadness or rejection. Loneliness is excruciating as you have no one to share your feelings with.
But why do we feel lonely?
Rejection from your partner (Breakup) is the most common reason for Loneliness today. Not getting good grades, not getting a good job or not clearing the interview… can also be added to the list. For all those having hard times right now, remember it’s only temporary.
Don’t Isolate Yourself
Many of us keep things close to our hearts. We don’t tell anyone what we are going through. We try to live in our own world because we fear that others might not listen to us or make fun of us. But by keeping things in your heart, you are only undermining your own self-esteem.
We start building a wall by not mixing up with others. Do not do this, this will only worsen your situation. Get out of your home, try to talk to people. If you suck at conversating, we have a guide on how to talk to strangers. Go and sit in your local park or a mall nearby, someday you will meet someone who will beat the loneliness out of you. Just don’t isolate yourself from this world.
Keep Yourself Busy
Don’t sit idle. Do things that you normally enjoy with others. Example, watch movies with your friends, listen to your favorite band or go for an outing. Else try something new which is of your interest. Join music classes, if you have a keen interest in music. Learn a new language if you are curious. By doing these things, you will find new friends and that too of your interest, and it will quickly help you get rid of your loneliness.
