How To Beat Loneliness

Did you know you are not alone!

Who is lonely? I thought there are close to 7,000,000,000 people on the planet. I get such a kick out of saying that to my friends. I am happy with my own company so I am never lonely, I believe that there is a God and God keeps me company, which ever faith you have I respect all of them.

The first thing I would suggest is to pray if you are feeling lonely, you may be surprised at how quickly thing can change. If you have a connection to the higher power in your heart, mind and soul then you will never be lonely. You will have a good time passing through this world. 

Know yourself and find like minded people to associate with who will keep you company and eventually friendships will develop overtime.  There are so many wonderful organizations that are out there where there are people just like yourself looking to new acquaitences.  It is up to you to know what you really want though.  Do not kid yourself, find a home that is suitable to your nature or the nature that you want to develop and there will be others waiting for you.

One key is learn how to trust and share information about yourself with others.  Many people will reciprocate accordingly.  Make it clear what you are looking for and do not have a hidden agenda.  If you really care about other people they will come looking for you and believe me you will wish that you could ind alone time.  People like people who are willing to accept them with out being too critical, a person who will accept the good and the "bad" about the other person.  Surround yourself with people  who you trust and who trust you and you will never be lonely. 

I like to just call up a good friend just to have conversation.  There is all this technology that aids with the communication between friends, I really do not know how people are lonely. Write a friend a letter and engage your mind in what you are writing as if that friend is there. If you have a family work on building better family relationships, if you are feeling lonely.  If you have co workers that you fell you could trust, work on building significant relationships with them if you are lonely.  If you are a member of any religious institution work on getting to know your congregation members and build meaningful relationships, not just the superficial see you on Sunday, forget you the rest of the week.  If you have a computer at home there are so many on line networking site that are available to help meet new people who have the same interests as you do so you could connect with those people. 

As I am writing this, I am still trying to figure out how  people really are lonely?  I do not know that feeling.  I find the connecting point with most people I meet and we work from there to see what relationship we are able to build.  I let them know up front, this is who I am, do not think you could read my mind or tell me ho I am and we will get along fine.  In return I will show you the same respect.  We do not need to agree on everything, that is what will make our relationship special, then I wish them the best. 

So what I am saying is true friendships beat loneliness.  True friend will find you and they will be there for you when needed, the key word is true.

Have a great day.
