People may feel lonely for several reasons. Some feel lonely because they do not have enough friends, not knowing how they can make contacts in their area or not accepted by the people with whom they would like to be friends like. However, everyone experiences loneliness. Some people are more socially acceptable, some try to be social but are rejected and others have difficulty making contact.
Realize that we all may have to deal with loneliness
If you feel lonely that does not mean that something is wrong with you. We are particularly vulnerable to loneliness if we end up in another situation. If you are experiencing changes, such as exploring new alternatives and paths for yourself, you can feel a little lonely if you’re looking for people who have similar interests.
Call or go to visit people you know
Even if it is not the people is where you directly at would like to be, human contact makes more contact easier. This also applies to your mother and the man at the store. Listen more and talk less. Listening and showing interest in other people will produce more than just talk about you. Concentrate on your existing contacts; these are the people you currently have around you.
Participate in activities where you can meet people. Look on the local news in your city for activities in your area. Volunteering is perhaps also a possibility. But do not do volunteer work with the idea of there to make friends or meet people. Too demanding on you is a sign of loneliness. Try also to go without too high expectations, and try to enjoy it, no matter what happens. Find activities that interest you, where other people come, such as sports, concerts, exhibitions, political campaigns, etc.
Take the lead
Challenge yourself to take the initiative in establishing social contacts in all situations where this is possible. Speak to someone, ask for a cup of coffee or any other situation also arises. Remember how much fun you will find when people are attracted to you. Realize also that you try to place yourself in the life of another to gain. Do not think only to show up, you’re right friends. It can be a long and difficult process, most people you have met all their own friends and life. You should always show interest in other people before they show interest in you.
Take a chance to expose yourself to give. Say what keeps you busy, if you feel that the other is open to it. It can hurt if not appreciated, but it’s worth it as the opposite is true.
Everyone is alone
Realize that everyone is only in his or her head; severed our individual life begins at birth and we die alone, it is nothing special. Every person who ever lived has been lonely. Love would not exist without the inspiration of loneliness. Look at your loneliness with detachment.
If you feel lonely, swallow or not in that sense. Undertake something, no matter what! Take a walk or go cycling. Discover activities and hobbies, try new things. These experiences give you a basis on which you can respond in more social situations (ie talking to people) and give your fabric for making calls that other people might be interested.
