Identifying the 7 Causes of Loneliness
Loneliness is known to be a silent killer or social evil that can contribute to depression, alcoholism, overeating, drug abuse, insanity, and even suicide. So, to avoid these sad results, it’s important to identify why we feel lonely.
1) Divorce and separation can also imply cold communication in marriage.
2) Can’t find a suitable can include single parent
3) Loss of a loved one in death
4) Being a stranger in a place where you just moved or lack of friends
5) Aging, feeling abandoned by children, declining health
6) Youthful inexperience, lack of self-esteem, negative self-thinking
7) Financially affected, financial worries and anxieties and job loss.
In today’s society, many experience loneliness. It affects people of all ages and of all races, social classes and creeds. In reality, all of us at one time or another have felt the need for companionship, for someone to listen, offer reassurance or possibly echo our deep feelings or inner thoughts, and understand us as a person. We need someone who is sensitive to our emotions. But if we are abandoned especially within the family circle and within our marriage bond, it is normal for us to feel sad and alone. But this negative emotion becomes a real problem only when it persists. If so, it may be a sign that our positive outlook on life has changed.
So, when someone isolates himself with the feeling of uselessness, there is the symptom that he begins to feel alone. But loneliness should not be the same as loneliness. Solitude may be desirable in some circumstances. It can refer to the situation of someone who desires to be away from their usual contacts, while loneliness, on the other hand, is a painful feeling. But we don’t want to feel sad. We want to feel the opposite, to be happy.
