The Bright Side of Loneliness


Loneliness is something we all fear, whether it being in school, work, at home, or anywhere you go.


One thing you must know is that it’s really important to surround yourself with those who actually see your worth rather than surrounding yourself with those who make you feel lonely (intentionally or not). The only way you can ever blossom and flourish is by identifying who is treating you this way and be strong enough to cut them out of your life for the better. It’s toxic behaviour and you don’t want any part of that.


At the same time, you should consider hanging out with yourself more often (which sounds really sad but it isn’t what it seems, I promise). It’s good to be alone for self-recharge. This could be reading, meditation, etc. Just two days ago, I went out and treated myself with some frozen yogurt whilst shopping around, which was very much needed, especially during times like these. Now I’m back, feeling better than ever.


With this in mind, my task for you is to find a time slot to go out for a walk or do any self-reflection you need. Quarantine is a really good time to become a better you. Hang out and be friends with yourself, and treat yourself the way you treat others. The more you practice this, the more mindful and grounded you become.


Most importantly, become a better you. Flip your mindset and instead of seeing your loneliness as a disadvantage, use it to do beneficial things. This way, you will be at an advantage.
