Feel Lost and Alone

Feel Lost and Alone

Here are some things to keep in mind when you feel lost and alone:

1. You are not alone in being alone.
So many of us are fighting the same exact battle alongside you. We are all in this together. So no matter how embarrassed or pathetic you feel about your own situation, know that there are other out there experiencing the same emotions. When you hear yourself say, "I am all alone, it's just your worried mind trying to sell you a lie. There is always someone who can relate to you. Perhaps you can't immediately talk to them, but they are out there, and that's all you need to know right now.

2. Sometimes when you are lonely, you need to be alone.
Sometimes you need to be alone, not to be lonely, but enjoy a little free time just being yourself and finding your way. In other words, the moments you feel lonely are the moments you may most need to be by yourself. This is one of life's cruelest ironies. 

3. Call someone.
Just hearing the voice of another human being can help snap us out of paralyzing feelings of fear and loneliness. Ask that person how their day is going and open the conversation with simple topic.

4. It is all about accepting the reality of what is.
You can not find peace by avoiding life. Life spins with unexpected changes; so instead of avoiding it, take every change and experience as a challenge for growth. Either it will give you what you want or it will teach you what the next step is and remember, finding peace in life doesnt mean to be in a place where there is no noise, no challenges, and no hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things while remaining calm in your heart.

5. Get off social media
As much as we like to think that social media is helpful in times of evading loneliness, it is actual detrimental. The compare and despair mentality that scrolling through social media feeds and streams, can actually take us out of the present moment. Comparing yourself to the "exciting lives" of others can breed deeper feeling of loneliness, insecurity and sadness.

6. Being alone doesnt mean you are lonely, and being lonely doesnt mean you are alone.
The trouble is not always in being alone; it's being lonely in the presence of others. One can be lonely in the midst of a crowd, Wouldnt you agree? So keep this in mind and choose your relationships wisely. It's always better to be alone than to be in bad company. And when you do decide to come back for someone, do so because you are truly better off with this person. Cont do it just fot the sake not being alone.

7. You are not who you used to be, and that is OK
You have been hurt, you have gone through numerous ups and downs that have made you who you are today. Over the years, so many things have happened that have changed your perspective, taught you lessons. and forced your spirit to grow. As time passes, nobody stays the same, but some people will still tell you that you have changed. Respond to them by saying, "Of course I have changed. That's what life is all about. I'm still the same human being, just a little stronger now than I ever was before".
