Problem of loneliness

Many people in the modern world are troubled by the loneliness problem. Man is a political animal, so said the Greek Philosopher Aristotle. Man mingles with his community and does not confine himself alone. While loneliness is thrust upon some people, many others invite loneliness because they do not know how to enjoy the company of other people. They do not know how to purposefully involve themselves in daily life.

Symptoms

Many uncomfortable symptoms will develop in such people who are experiencing loneliness in their lives. The suffering will be both at the physical and mental levels. The signals start developing slowly and steadily and are difficult to identify in the initial stage. But once they reach a point of no return, the person realises that he had been trapped by the loneliness in his life. Such a person will have no will to live and will feel dejected, sad, frustrated and depressed.

A lonely person may hate even God

He may become, in course of time, unsociable to such a level that he may get irritated with anybody who approaches him and might even have hatred towards all surrounding him for no conspicuous reason. He may even hate God. He will have misunderstanding with everyone including his family members and will view everyone with suspicion. Only hatred, suspicion and conflict will be present between the lonely person and others.

A lonely person is likely to become a drug addict

At the physical level, there are other signals that develop. The individual will not feel hungry and has food aversion with indigestion. He may even have constipation. As isolation develops more and more, the person starts losing all his energy and initiative to do work. He suffers from vague pains in all parts of the body and develops insomnia, headaches, dry skin, head noises, vertigo, loss of hearing, loss of vision etc. In order to escape from these maladies, the person usually resorts to drugs and alcohol. He may also become heavy smoker in order to reduce his mental strain. He develops serious nervous disorders like Parkinson’s disease, hypoglycaemia, low blood pressure, anaemia, cardio insufficiency, rheumatic diseases and diabetes.

The magic cure

The problem can be tackled by changing or adjusting one’s mind. Instead of viewing other people with hostility, one should welcome other people’s presence and start mingling with them positively. One should try to help others as much as one can either through financially or physically or through counselling. One should welcome even strangers and befriend with them. If this change of mind comes about, then the entire problem of loneliness disappears. Along with it, all the problems associated with it will also disappear and the person will become quite normal and healthy. This is the trick.

I agree with the post.I have gone through this.The way I chose was to take up something which I had always find myself hard and focusing on that.I feel socializing is very important in life and sharing is one way to overcome this problem.
