Loneliness has been called an epidemic.

And the U.S. Surgeon General said:

“Loneliness can be fatal.

The mortality rate of loneliness is equal to smoking

15 cigarettes a day (for years).

And is greater than the mortality associated with obesity.”

All age groups are affected by loneliness.

The United Kingdom even has a

Minister Of Loneliness.

That’s an official government position!

All of this could seem concerning.

But here is what I want you to remember:

Loneliness or lonely is a feeling.

Like all feelings it is caused by a thought you are thinking.

No one makes us feel lonely.

We feel what we feel because we think what we think.

You can stop feeling lonely by:

1. Changing your thinking, and

2. Taking action.

I had a client who felt lonely.

She had stopped going to networking and social events.

She stopped interacting with others.

I asked her about this.

Her thoughts were:

  • Everybody else already has their cliques/friends.
  • I don’t fit in.
  • People don’t like me.

These thoughts made her feel:

  • Unacceptable
  • Unworthy
  • Unlikeable

She realized these thoughts and feelings were not serving her.

She found new thoughts to think:

  • I can make new friends
  • I can find people at events that I connect with.
  • I have a lot to offer and people like me.

These thoughts caused her to feel:

  • Confident
  • Self-assured
  • Worthy

After practicing these thoughts, she began going to events.

She made connections.

She found friends.

She stopped feeling lonely.

You can do the same.

Please don’t let loneliness be a terminal disease for you.

You can choose to think, feel and act your way out of loneliness.
