To my people who feel lonely out there, this is for you

Thank you for clicking on my article. What very well mind says about loneliness is “it is a universal human emotion that is both complex and unique to an individual. It causes people to feel empty and unwanted”. I for one, have been in such a situation. Wondering where I went wrong, or what is wrong with me. If you have ever had such an experience, you would know that it hurts to the core. No one ever loves to be lonely. Sometimes you may have friends but there is a hint of loneliness in your life. 

Yes, we have introverts who would love to focus on themselves and are very reserved. This article isn’t directed towards introverts though, just to say that there are people who prefer to be alone. This article is to my people who feel lonely. I want them to get the positive side of it and not the negative side. I want for them to be focused on they can do to improve themselves and not the other way around.

Try to be truly open when opportunities come your way:

Be prepared to try out new things and change location if you have to. Don’t be stuck at one place and be having thoughts you aren’t supposed to have. Get yourself busy, live the life and don’t depend your happiness on anyone else. 

Continue to increase your self-love and self-confidence:

These two are very important. Never underestimate yourself, for you are much more than how you perceive yourself to be. Never stop loving yourself and improving your self-confidence. 

It is a gift in disguise because you get to know more about yourself:

There are still some things you don’t know how about yourself, especially the emotional aspect. You would get to understand why you behave in some manners and get to know that people pleasing isn’t everything and very wrong. 

I would love to back this article up with a quote by Amy Tan, which reads “our uniqueness makes us special, makes perception valuable but it can also make us lonely. This loneliness is different from being ‘alone’. You can be lonely even surrounded by people. The feeling I am talking about stems from the sense that we can never fully share the truth of who we are”. This writer realized this intensely at an early stage.

 Thank you for reading.
