Human are social species,we lay on connection to survive even the most basic interaction keeps us alive.

The main question is how we define loneliness ,how do we understand loneliness ,some think say that

  • loneliness is sadness because one has no friend or company
  • social isolation.

This is my understanding

loneliness is when you feel that you don’t have nothing and no one,it like you are drowning and you are floating away.

when you reach in that kind of lonely can make you reach for anything.

what makes us happiest in life,some people may point to fabulous fame and fortune yet hands down survey show that friends and family are real prize.even though our need to connect is innate,some of us always go home alone.you could have people around you through out the day or even be in a lifelong marriage and still experience a deep pervasive loneliness.Unsurprising ,isolation can have a serious detrimental effect on ones mental and physical health.


one major challenge within happiness is loneliness. The more live learned about happiness,the more i have learned about happiness,the more i have come to believe that loneliness is common and obstacle to consider

To be happy we nee intimate bonds,we need to be able to confide ,we need  to feel like we belong,we need to be able to get and give support.in  fact ,strong relationships are key-perhaps the key-to a happy life

Here are some solution to mitigate and resolve loneliness

  1. make a plan

make a  strategy to meet people who have similar interest,people who think a like.

2.Do something -anything

Behavior activation which is also referred as ” just do it”.if you are feeling lonely and want to change it,any small step you take even  striking up a casual  friendly conversation can change a lot.

3.Bond with a Dog

dogs get out and about,they are naturally social creature and you will have a living being to care about.

4. Have realistic standard

part of solutions may be to accept that you can have fun and light conversation with a variety of people and that its okay if they  don’t become lifelong confidantes.

5.Think beyond yourself

stop focusing too much on yourself and try to focus on other things

6.Reach out to a lonely person

you may get emotional boost from be friending someone else who is lonely

7.call and dont post

people do best if more of their relationship happen face to face  or over the people.

8. Make time for relationship

everyone is busy but make time for a relationship to thrive

9.talk to  a relative

families will have always have time for you matter what ,they will give a sympathetic ear from family member or friend with whom you want


it can help you release some of the thought that could be keeping  you feeling lonely.
