More and more people experience the feeling of loneliness on a regular basis and struggle to find ways to combat it. At the same time studies have shown, that feeling lonely can also affect your mental health. So let us look at the subject and talk about ways to get over this unpleasant feeling.
Loneliness - what it is about
First things first: Being alone does not necessarily equal feeling lonely and loneliness can be different for each one of us. Also, we all feel lonely from time to time and that is okay. Looking at the common description, loneliness describes the feeling we get when we are lacking rewarding social contact and relationships.
So, while we can choose to be alone, loneliness is rather a state of mind that hits us and can not really be controlled by us. In other words, you can very well feel loneliness even if you are in a relationship, are part of a group of friends or a family, or regularly have social contact. This happens especially when you do not feel understood, seen, supported, or cared for by the people surrounding you.
Causes of loneliness
As I have pointed out already, you might feel lonely because you do not feel truly connected to the people around you. But the causes of loneliness are many and different and can vary big times from person to person.
Often we can not really say where the cause for our loneliness lies and what makes us feel lonely. What experience tells us is that there are certain life events that are more likely to leave us feeling lonely:
● When we lose someone important to us;
● When we go through a break-up;
● When we move to a new city or country and do not have family, friends, or community networks around;
● In general when we start something new, like a new job or university, and have not found our peers yet.
At the same time, some of us might also feel loneliness during certain times of the year, such as around our birthday, Christmas or other festive days and so on. But as I have said: Loneliness has many faces and might feel different and be caused by different things for each one of us.
