At some point we all encounter a moment when we feel like we are all alone; like we belong to the Lonely Hearts Club. Usually we aren’t – even if we don’t have someone with us at that precise moment in time there are people out there who know and love us. People who care about us. Of course if you’ve recently had a divorce, or something else has happened, whereby you have lost a lot of friends, it can be tough. The great thing about life is that you will continue to meet new people who will come to love and care for you, but you have to be pro-active about it.
The first step is usually to realize you aren’t alone – even if you don’t have any friends where you are at right now, there are plenty of people waiting to meet you. The best way to do so is to take courses, join activity groups and meetup groups, start going to local coffee shops, and sign up to online dating sites if you are single. Our site, LoveAgain, has helped countless singles find love again after a break-up, or divorce. If you fear social interaction it’s good to look up tips online and attend seminars and workshops in the topic. Even seeking therapy if it keeps bothering you.
That Bridget Jones moment of singing All by Myself whilst sitting in your PJs drinking vodka and eating ice cream doesn’t have to be so bad if you know it won’t last. And it won’t. There is no need to have a lonely heart for long.
