Damaging Loneliness

Aditi Kashyap

A lot of people endure loneliness and sometimes it can be a lot of stress on the physical and mental health. Here are some tips to deal with it.

Loneliness is an emotional state we are in when we’re feeling disconnected. It becomes the worst feeling is when it is gifted by someone you love, that feeling when you are not necessarily sad but just feel empty from the lack of love. The loneliest moment in someone’s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do stare blankly. It is the feeling of alone that I have no one by my side. It is not a lack of company, it is a lack of purpose.

State of Mind

State of Mind

Loneliness is not caused by others; it is when your mind and your heart tell you that nobody cares about you. You never realize how lonely you are until it’s the end of the day and you got a bunch of things to talk about and no one to talk to you. The most tragic fact about loneliness is that unlike sickness and diseases, there’s really no cure for this experience of feeling rejected, of being an outcast. You see no one in the room but nothing makes a room feel emptier than wanting someone in it.

You keep a lot to yourself because it’s difficult to find people who understand. We sometimes think we want to disappear but all we really want is to be found. If you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they have tried to blend into the works before but that people continue to disappoint them.

The mind of lonely people thinks I have everyone even though I am alone because everyone is not my only one. It is lonely when someone you care about becomes a stranger. The loneliest people are the kindest. The saddest people smile the brightest. The most damaged people are the wisest. All because they never wish to see anyone else suffer the way they do. Loneliness is the poverty of self, solitude is the richness of self. Mostly the person who tries to keep everyone happy is the most lonely person. Loneliness is a sign you are in desperate need of yourself.

It’s important to mention that there is a big difference between being alone and being lonely, they are not the same thing. Introverts for example, value alone time seeing it as central to recharging mentally and emotionally. Chronic loneliness on the other hand, leads to the feeling of isolation- of having no one there to talk to, turn to, or be with when you want to.

Signs of Loneliness

So, are you lonely? And how can you tell?

If you have the following signs, loneliness could very well be the culprit.

1. Constant Exhaustion

Constant Exhaustion and Loneliness

It turns that sleep and loneliness are closely linked. The feeling of loneliness and isolation led to higher instances of disrupted sleep, as well as exhaustion during the day.

2. Social Anxiety

Social Anxiety

Loneliness enforces cyclical feelings of isolation, which is what makes it so damaging to your mental health. As a direct result of this, social anxiety begins to build up when we think about social events.

3. Premature Ageing

Premature Ageing

Loneliness is a potent stressor, impacting the natural flow of various cellular processes that occur in the body -making you disposed and premature ageing.

4. Frequent Headaches

Frequent Headaches

While headaches are not all that uncommon, they can be another side effect of loneliness. It causes feelings of depression and this poor emotional state leads to two-thirds of lonely people experiencing headaches.

If happiness and suffering are in the mind, then it follows that the causes of happiness and suffering are also in the mind. It turns out that if you want to stop being lonely, you have to change how you perceive the world and this is where the difference lies between people who are lonely those who aren’t.

There’s one quote that comes to my mind.

The difference between humans and mice is this. So if mice see something doesn’t workout you know, in those little experiments when they’re put through a maze. If mice see something doesn’t work out they try something else. But humans will go back to doing same thing they’ve always done and repeat their mistakes.

These two tips are key, and I want to share with you

Meet!

meet people

The first strategy to get rid of loneliness is to start talking with many people as you can. Now I know you have heard advice like “Get out and meet people, go to events because this is how you can get rid of loneliness“. But let’s be honest: such opportunities are limited because it’s hard to go to places alone just to meet people. It’s forced – not natural. So start talking to several people as you can and especially the ones that you normally wouldn’t talk to, because these are often ones that we come into contact with on an almost daily basis. If you do this, this will really make a difference.

Share!

share your feelings

The second strategy to get rid of loneliness is to share about yourself. You might say you’re doing everything you can. You are asking questions that are good for establishing the initial connection, but it’s still not working out. So if you want to take your I interactions to a whole new level and create connections that are real with people then you have to share about yourself and open up.

If you are feeling lonely know that you will always have books to nurture your mind, hands to create and explore, wind to calm your soul, breathe to soothe your nerves, nature to soak your worry and stars to decorate your dreams. You keep a lot of yourself because it’s difficult to find people who understand. Loneliness adds beauty to life. It puts a special burn on sunsets and makes night air smell better.

Trying to fill your loneliness by looking for a companion or anything outside is not going to work. Know that you’re on this planet to give something and then pack up and leave. It does not mean that you are lonely just because you choose to stand alone. On the contrary, it shows I am strong enough to take on challenges myself. Always remember the time you feel lonely is the time you most need to be by yourself. And in the end, all you learned was how to be strong alone.
