TIPS TO OVERCOME LONELINESS

edward-hopper-morning-sunTalk to people

A psychological  study found that same-sex strangers felt increasing affinity towards each other, after each conversation they had. Don’t be hesitant to talk to people : if you’re genuinely interested or curious about others, they’re more likely to reciprocate those feelings.

Go to the restaurant

Offer yourself a three-course dinner at a restaurant : When you go on a date with yourself, you’re sure to go somewhere you actually like and you don’t have to wait around for others to decide.

Attend meetings, lectures

There are a lot of possibilities, so it’s impossible not to find something to your liking. You’ll meet new people and you may make new friends.

Watch a film

Watch a movie alone or call some friends to go with you—it doesn’t matter. What’s important is you immerse yourself in an interesting story that’ll erase your gloomy thoughts.

    PRESCRIPTION FOR THE DISILLUSIONED –
    Come new to this day.
    Remove the rigid overcoat of experience,
    the notion of knowing,
    the beliefs that cloud your vision.

    Leave behind the stories of your life.
    Spit out the sour taste of unmet expectation.
    Let the stale scent of what-ifs waft back into the swamp
    of your useless fears.

    Arrive curious, without the armor of certainty,
    the plans and planned results of the life you’ve imagined.
    Live the life that chooses you,
    new every breath, every blink of your astonished eyes.

    – Rebecca del Rio, poet
