The tricky thing about feelings is that they're different for everyone: Some people, for example, are perfectly fine having few friends, or enjoy spending a great deal of time alone. For other people, those same scenarios would create a deep sense of loneliness and isolation. According to a survey released by health insurer Cigna in Januarythree in five people in the U.
And figuring out how to feel less lonely depends partly on why you feel lonely to begin with. Try focusing on cultivating that closeness with others by setting intentional time to just be together — taking a walk with each other or going for coffee with no phones in sight. Introverts definitely can get a bad reputation for living in isolation. In reality, for a lot of introverts, socializing can simply be exhaustingespecially with big groups of people or environments where there's lots of networking. While it can be fun to catch up on a surface level, it doesn't necessarily make you feel closer to those around you.
You can, theoretically, have a million friends, but if you don't invest time and energy into them, it's likely you'll continue feeling lonely. Of course, developing relationships is a two-way street: Becoming closer to a person doesn't mean you're dumping all of your problems on them, but that you're developing a connection and forming a bond that is mutually beneficial.
Close friends can't solve your problems; they can only offer support.
Furthermore, it's your job to support them when they need it, too. Ever feel like people don't really know you?
It's possible that you're surrounded by people who are not emotionally available or who aren't looking for new friends or close relationships. It's also possible that you have your own guard up, and therefore aren't sending out clear messages that you're open for new bonds or connections.
In reality, we don't know what life is like for our peers behind the computer screen unless we're actually, you know, there with them. Some studies also that the lonelier a person is, the more time they're likely to spend on social mediathus contributing to the cycle. Social media can also give us the sense that we're with tons of other people, but because we're not gaining anything from a face-to-face interaction, or actively experiencing their lives with them, it can further contribute to the sense that we're feeling isolated in a big group even if that group is only virtual and perceived.
