Loneliness: What is the Cause and How Do We Overcome It in Our Lives?
Many people experience loneliness in their lives, at some stage. As children we mix and make friends easily but as we get older and more fixed in our way, we may find it more challenging to find like-minded people we feel comfortable with.
To overcome loneliness is one of modern societies issues today. With television tending to portray fear and stress in their drama productions, one can get conditioned into becoming introverted, especially if you live alone.
There are a few things we can do to help reverse this tendency in later life and that is to consider all the things we enjoy doing. Then go to the library, or find a what’s on type publication, to see what clubs and societies there are near by, which carry out these interests.
If your interest is not catered for consider being the source of that interest by starting your own club or society to carry it out. It is also a good idea to have a go at new things.
A year back I decided I was going to join a new club or society each month and see how I got on. I am glad I did this as I got lots of experience of new things and met lots of new people and gained a greater awareness of life and living.
These days I am never at home I am always out visiting different groups and societies. This has really improved my confidence and self-esteem and I am sure it can do the same for you.
Taking an active role in the community can also help. Consider sharing your expertise with the young either by offering to teach at home or going to youth clubs. We have all got something to give it is just a question of taking a few minutes to reflect on what these area are.
When we have assessed what we are good at and what we have to offer, looks for areas where people come together. A lot of communities have an officer in charge of organising community event, go and have a word with them and see what can be worked out.
Shyness is a bit like selfishness we hold ourselves back and block ourselves from giving. Put your attention on what you do want and think much less about what you don’t want and the things that block you. Then watch your energies flow feely and real progress start to be made in your desires and aspirations.
If you are house bound think of putting a notice in the local shop for a visitor to came and chat for an hour or two per day. When doing this think positively about this as we attract to us the way we feel. If we raise our feeling vibration so we are feeling happy and at peace with the world then we will attract to us like-minded people that will be uplifting to be with.
The best way then to stop feeling lonely is starting to approach life with enthusiasm and go out and start connecting in whatever way you feel inspired.
