RELATIONSHIP: When You Are Overwhelmed By Loneliness

I am one of those who is grateful to  God that Valentine's Day is on a Sunday this year. I will be so loving God like. Hehehe . . .

Hi sweets! How have you been? I missed you "a lil". If you're following me on Twitter, you'd have known that my phone packed up last night. But thanks to my brother, he did something nice. Now I can blog. :)

Overcoming Loneliness


Today wasn't one of my proudest days. I'd probably be ashamed to share it with you. It was one of those moments in my life when loneliness almost gripped me.

Loneliness is a feeling of emptiness or darkness inside you. You feel isolated or separated from the world, cut off from those you would like to have contact with.

There are different kinds of loneliness and different degrees of loneliness. However, I’m hoping that I can share some positive tips I've found to be helpful - and may just help you too. :)

When you are overwhelmed by loneliness . . .
  1. Remember that loneliness is a feeling and not a fact
  2. Figure out why you feel lonely. A thought must have triggered it. 
  3. Remember that God is with you. You are not alone. 
  4. Remember that God loves you.
  5. Stop focusing on you, you, and you. Look around and see the blessings. 
  6. Focus on the needs of others around you
  7. Become more active
  8. Get busy. Participate in some activities
  9. Be brave. Put yourself out there
  10. Start a conversation. Just talk to someone. 
  11. Reach out to someone. Help another lonely person. 
  12. Pray. Pray. Pray. 

Trust me, these tips work. I wish I could elaborate on each point. But I have to settle down to write the next article for tomorrow right now.

My advice to every lonely heart (single or married) is that you love the Lord, seek His face, read His word, and share His love with others. You will not only feel better, but will also experience an atmosphere of positivity, inspiration and love.

Take charge of your emotions. 

One more thing, if you ever feel lonely, don’t be afraid to strengthen a weak friendship or build a new one. There are people everywhere to connect with. Everywhere.

Question: I'm not sure whether this question is appropriate; do you feel more connected with people on your phone or in real life?
