What Do You Do When You Feel Lonely ?

I felt compelled to do a write up on the above subject in a very lay man’s language through my eyes, how I see it. But, I know, this can touch many of you because almost all of us go through these phases from time to time.

What Makes You Feel Lonely ?

Hard to say or define, right ? ‘N’ number of things can make you feel lonely at times.

  • When people around you start treating you indifferently.
  • When nothing seems to be working in your favor.
  • When whatever you try to do is being misjudged as wrong.
  • When for every fault of others you are being victimized and made the easy target.
  • When no one helps you out in anything and you are being left alone to figure things out on your own.
  • When people you love, trust and defend with everything, try to pose you to be at fault, while leaving out theirs.
  • When people want you to give 100%, while they are happy to give anything less than 100%.

Makes sense ? Don’t you experience some of the above at times ? I bet you do.

So What You Do When You Feel Lonely ?

Honestly I can’t deduce what you generally do when you feel the same way. But I can share with you what I can do or want to do whenever I feel the way like those points above. Loneliness or feeling alone even when you are in a room full of people, can be utterly painful and that might lead you to a feeling of hopelessness. Some of us are religious and we pose deep faith on our Gods to help us see through such phases of loneliness. I am like many of you have faith in my god, no matter what. Along with it, I don’t allow my mind to get fully controlled by that feeling of hopelessness. Rather to say, I talk to myself and reassure me that this phase will pass. I also try to make my mind stronger with self belief that I can handle many things on my own, even when the world is against me. I can walk the path ahead with grace and can pass the hurdles, with help or no help. I pose faith in the people around me that given time, they will see good and sense and will treat me the way with much more positiveness.

I can help myself through my reading, my music, and doing all those things that give me joy. That will not make me go into that feeling of loneliness. I can train my mind to see the good in things around me and in life even when the walls seem to be closing down on me. I can try to find some people to whom I can confide and share my feelings. These little little things can help to give us the strength which we need to come out of this feeling of loneliness.

I hope that you will share with me what you go through in such feelings and what you generally do to come out of these. Let’s connect in the comments below. And till next time, stay safe and healthy.

  1. Some valid points here. I love my solitude and don’t feel lonely when I’m alone. As you said, it’s a mental state. You can feel lonely even when you’re surrounded by people. It’s about people and how they make you feel.

    I seek my solitude when I’m upset. It makes me feel better. And music heals.

    Interesting and thoughtful post.

  2. I think pandemic is more than half responsible for us feeling this way more often now…but yes valid points there.. and may be also having a support group meaning a set of people whom we can talk to when feeling so is essential.. I like calling by sister, my best friend ..
