How Society Got Loneliness All Wrong

Instead, you should build the relationship you have with yourself. Embracing loneliness is not easy but it will allow you to learn who you really are, what you like and don’t like, and what you need and don’t need from other people. Being alone doesn’t mean you have to feel lonely. Lonely is state of mind, your own need to get approval from other people.

Instead, try to seek approval from yourself. Don’t spend your life becoming what others want you to be. Instead, surround yourself with a few friends that really care for you and make you feel better about yourself.

Try to become authentic, unique and satisfied with who you are. If you take some alone time and learn about yourself you will also learn that you don’t need another people to shape your life. You can have fun even when you are alone so try to go out and do something new and exciting.

After that, keep this experience to yourself. Soon you will learn that the moments in life are not valuated by approvals from others but from the enjoyment you had experiencing them.
