#Am I mentally alone?

sometimes, I question myself — Why do I feel so lonely by myself ?

I have a full fledge family and friends, and I go to parties too where I find a lot of people. Still, I experience alone.

Yes, it is so, because I am not quite satisfied with what I  have.

when I look around sometimes,  and I see dozens of other people, who are sailing in the same boat,  sitting near each other, chatting and smiling but still feeling alone. Do you know what I mean to say?

It is the common problem of today, the answer of which is to be found.

Because loneliness can make you depressed and can lead to early death. And even it can make you prey to Alzheimer’s disease.

Some steps need to be taken alone

I am sure you would also agree that this is an alarming and in fact, loneliness can physically harm us. The problem is that more and more people are feeling lonely today. In fact, it is almost one in three.

In recent years, loneliness has become a growing concern of life due to the increasing pace of modern life, technological advancements, and social changes that have led to a decline in human interaction and social support.

You think that with all of these social media smartphones and face timing that allows us to get in touch with one another instantly are the factors. But actually, the opposite is true. 

We are becoming lonelier, more depressed, and more anxious than ever. And people are turning to therapy and antidepressants to cope with the problem.

Loneliness is not only an unpleasant feeling but also a public health issue, as it has been linked to a range of physical and mental health problems, including depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances, cardiovascular disease, and decreased immune function.

Nothing can bring you peace but yourself

 Research has shown that chronic loneliness can be as harmful to health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day, making it a serious concern that deserves attention now.

The good news is that loneliness is a treatable condition and there are many ways to overcome it. Here are some tips that can be helpful to overcome loneliness and improve the sense of connection with others.

Connect with others through social activities:

One of the best ways to overcome loneliness is to engage in social activities that bring you in contact with others. This can be anything from joining a club / group that interests you to volunteering at a local organization to participating in community events and gatherings. Engaging in activities that you enjoy and that allow you to connect with others can help you build new relationships, increase your sense of belonging, and improve your overall well-being.

The most terrible poverty is loneliness

Use technology to connect with others:

In our digital age, technology provides many opportunities to connect with others, even if we can’t physically be together. Platforms like social media, video conferencing, and instant messaging allow us to stay connected with friends and family, and even make new connections, from anywhere in the world.

Seek professional help:

If you are struggling with loneliness and are unable to overcome it on your own, it may be helpful to seek professional help. A mental health professional can provide you with the support and guidance you need to address the root causes of your loneliness and develop a plan for overcoming it.

Practice self-care:

Taking care of your physical, emotional, and mental well-being is crucial to overcoming loneliness. This includes eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, getting enough sleep, and engaging in activities that bring you joy and relaxation. Additionally, practicing self-compassion, mindfulness, and positive thinking can help you develop a more positive outlook on life and increase your sense of connection to others.

I keep my smile on all the time

Seek out new relationships:

If you are lonely, it may be helpful to seek out new relationships. This can mean reaching out to old friends and making new friends. Building new relationships takes time and effort, but the rewards can be substantial. It may help you to feel less isolated and more connected to others.


Volunteering is a great way to meet new people and give back to your community. When you volunteer, you have the opportunity to connect with others who share your interests and values.  Your contribution to a cause that is important to you. This can help you feel more connected to your community and improve your overall sense of well-being.

What goes around, comes around

Get involved in your community:

Engaging in your local community can help you overcome loneliness and build a sense of belonging. This can mean participating in local events and activities, joining community organizations, or simply getting to know your neighbors. By connecting with others in your community, you can build relationships, increase your sense of belonging, and improve your overall well-being.

Thinking about what is making you feel lonely may help you find a way of feeling better.

Just close your eyes, and think about the one who truly loves and cares for you. That is the moment you will not feel alone.

  2. Interesting! Synchronistically I wrote about this last night on Substack. I believe loneliness is a lack of purpose. I’m way too busy with too much to do than feel lonely.

  4. Both my step-father and grandfather lived 96 years. They kept their mind strong. They read the newspapers and books non-stop. Our mind, like a car. You park the car for a long time. It won’t work the same. Good morning Vermavkv.
