If you’re struggling with loneliness, we encourage you to focus on getting to know yourself better. Engage in self-reflection and explore the root of your loneliness. If you have a better understanding of why you’re feeling lonely, you will have more control over what you can do to change that feeling.
When you spend time getting to know yourself, you can learn how to regulate your emotions on your own, making it easier to cope with loneliness. A great way to do this is to partake in activities you enjoy, such as going out to dinner, going to the movies, visiting a museum, or attending a concert, on your own. Though this can feel scary and uncomfortable at first, it can help you become more comfortable with loneliness, while promoting personal growth and self-love.
