True loneliness is without a doubt one of the most heart wrenching and painful experiences that can happen to an individual, and all of us have felt lonely at one point in our lives. While there is a minority that might enjoy only having the company of themselves, for most people real contentment goes hand-in-hand with human companionship. And while being lonely might not affect you as immediately as going without food or shelter, long-term loneliness can have a severely debilitating affect on anyone’s life.
While Romance Tracker deals mainly with issues of romance and romantic love, in this post we’re going to focus not on romantic loneliness, but rather on a general absence of human interaction. There are a couple reasons for this: first, fulfilling companionship doesn’t always have to be of the romantic type to satisfy a person. Secondly, we believe that if you truly eradicate loneliness from your life, and focus on being a happier and more content person who interacts with many people, that your chances of finding true love become much higher.
Although your long term goal might be to forge many friendships and relationships with a large variety of people, like any undertaking you should approach overcoming loneliness one step at a time. Making close friends will come with time, but in order to find people who have more in common with you, you need to make the decision to go to them.
What are your favorite hobbies, passions, interests and talents? No matter how quirky or strange, there is guaranteed to be an organization, group or gathering place that caters to people with those same interests. Far too many people doom themselves to being lonely by convincing themselves that no one else could possibly be interested in the same things they are. This is a huge mistake, and a quick check on your favorite Internet search engine will show you that there are countless groups of people out there looking to make contact with someone just like you.
In the end, the secret to never being lonely again is by seeking out intellectual and moral support and companionship. These people will not find you if you don’t take the first step and initiate contact, and they will most likely be very happy to welcome you into their ranks. If you want to truly overcome loneliness, take the first step by researching groups in your area that are dedicated to the things you are interested in.
And a bit later down the road, after you’ve made some close personal and professional friends who are interested in the same things you are, overcoming your romantic loneliness will naturally come next.Â When you surround yourself with people who are cut from the same cloth as you, it’s inevitable that you will eventually meet that special someone who will complete your life and give you the best remedy to loneliness that there is.
So what are you waiting for?Â Stop dooming yourself to being lonely and make the decision to find other people out there who would love to get to know you.Â The longer you wait, the more unnecessary pain you’re causing yourself in the end.
