Not Feeling Alone, A Guide for Women To Overcome Loneliness
Loneliness can be frightening. While some people enjoy being single, its difficult for others to get through this. Loneliness can have severe effects on your mental health, even leading to depression and anxiety. Many think that single people are lonelier than others, but the American Psychological Association states married women are actually lonelier and more stressed than women who are single. Loneliness can be avoided by doing simple things. Here is a list:
1. Take time for yourself
The best way to avoid loneliness is to spend time making yourself a better person with each passing day. Focus on what you want to change and work on self-improvement. Spend time doing what matters to you like time with family, career, and hobbies. Doing what you love will uncover new traits in your personality.
2. Analyze your loneliness
Loneliness is a feeling, not a fact. Our brain pays more attention to pain and danger so it gives more attention to feelings of loneliness. Its important to make yourself believe that you are not actually lonely. Surround yourself with people who support you and love you.
