Loneliness and Its Effects

 Loneliness has always been a painful and disturbing situation whereby you don’t feel connected to others and you feel the important needs in your life are not being met and you feel some emptiness.  We as humans always need acquaintance and this brings about creation of relationships and friendship so, loneliness is a signal that an important basic need is not being met such as the need to develop a circle of friends or a special relationship. People need people. If you are lonely, you sometimes feel the need for warmth, understanding, and long to share your feelings and thoughts with others. Loneliness does not necessarily mean being alone. For instance, you can feel lonely when you are in a class with twenty other students, in the middle of a party, at a sports event with hundreds of screaming spectators, or surrounded by family.

Loneliness can mean:

  • Feeling that you are unacceptable, unloved by those around you, not worthwhile, even if others don’t share these perceptions; feeling alienated from your surroundings: lacking the attachments that you had in the past… feeling that there is no one with whom to share your personal concerns and experiences…
  • Feeling that you are alone and have no other choice. You may find it difficult to make friends or go beyond mere acquaintance… Loneliness to me means no real companionship
  • There is no one close enough to touch and willing to laugh when I make a stupid joke so I can think I’m funny.
  • Loneliness means eating lots of meals alone. One fork hitting one plate every night for several years is a very desolate sound, devastating and this ruins the best of culinary creations when you match it with a good long stare at the wall in front of you.
  • Feeling that you are not wanted, sometimes you want to associate with others but you have this feeling which draw you back and makes you feel unwanted by others.
  • It sometimes means being very afraid that you will never develop whatever it is that lets other people experience how you feel or share your ideas or feelings with other people, so they can gain or learn from your little experience

The best we can do when we feel lonely is to try to share our feelings and emotions with others.  Reasonable advice and good direction on the right part could be very useful because sometimes if you do not let others know your feelings or try to get at least one person you can share your mind and thoughts with, then you might get into trouble, because loneliness sometimes can lead to a lot of things like depression and uncertainty about yourself, life and the world in general, so no matter what we are going through we should avoid being lonely and civilization has made things easy now.  If you feel so lonely try joining a social media, make friends and share opinion, ideas, be active and sometimes solution to your problems could come from there and you might eventually not feel lonely again.

loneliness is a signal that an important basic need is not being met, such as the need to develop a circle of friends or a special relationship or the need for support. It is always very devastating and terrible when you feel the need for warmth and it’s not there, the need for understanding and support, especially when you have a special program and you want your family there for you.  The need and longing to share your feelings and thoughts with others, but nobody is there to listen to you can make you really and truly lonely. Loneliness can also arise as a result of insecurity, inferiority complex, the feeling that you are not acceptable and loved by people around you, the feeling that you have no choice but be lonely.

I am lonely

The last time I felt lonely was when i was far away from my family due to circumstances beyond my control which led to loneliness and because of this, I had to console myself by getting a dog to keep my company.  there are others with similar or different cases that warrants loneliness, like the case of a teenager who had a sweet and loving parents but lost them to accident can become very lonely or the case of a student who likes been teased or bullied all the time by her fellow students can lead to that student being really and truly lonely.

"Loneliness has followed me my whole life...

“Loneliness has followed me my whole life, everywhere. In bars, in cars, sidewalks, stores, everywhere. There’s no escape. I’m God’s lonely man.” Robert De Niro as neo-noir antihero Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver (1976). (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
