Suddenly Lonely: How to Handle Feeling Isolated

How to Handle the Things that Make You Feel Lonely

Loneliness is an emotion that we’ve all felt at one time or another. It can come on suddenly (the unexpected death of a loved one), or it can build up over time (moving to a new city where you don’t know anyone). It’s hard to navigate this emotion, especially if we don’t have anyone to turn to for comfort. Although transitions are difficult, here are some tips to help you cope with the feelings of isolation and loneliness they often bring about.

Starting a New Job

Starting a new job can be exciting. It often means more money, more responsibility and a chance to show your new coworkers and boss just how awesome you are. But starting a new job can also make you lonely. You don’t know anyone. You don’t have someone to eat lunch with. You’ve probably given all that up to take this job. Sure, you left the comfort of your old job, but you did it because your new opportunity is a better one. That’s what you have to tell yourself when the loneliness creeps in.

A reading with a compassionate psychic can help you cope with the loneliness you’ve been feeling. Call today. 

There is much you can do to feel less lonely. Break down barriers. Be friendly and chat up your coworkers. Make an effort to get to know them. Ask them about their favorite lunch spots or where they like to go for a cup of coffee before work. You may be invited to join them!

Moving to a New City

Moving to a new city can be overwhelming. Whether you’ve moved for school, your career, love or to be closer to family, you’ll need to build a new social circle. You’re going to feel lonely, but don’t wallow in it. Get out and meet new people. Try and join groups that revolve around your interests. And if you can’t find a group that meets your needs, create your own!

Explore the city. Find the best restaurants, gyms, markets, dry cleaners, etc., in your neighborhood. You have the power to make a new city feel like home. And once you get comfortable, invite friends or family to visit. You’ll have plenty to show them.

Ending a Relationship

Whether or not you did the dumping, being without your partner is going to sting—especially if you’ve been together for a long time. All the things you used to do together you have to do alone now, or not do at all. Sure, you can take a friend along, but it’s not the same. So what’s the solution to this kind of loneliness? Start dating again when you’re ready and make new memories with your new significant other. If you’re not ready to date yet, make time for the friends and family you probably neglected while you were in a relationship. Reconnect with them. And if they’re hesitant or feeling like you’re only interested in them now that you’re single, apologize and promise them that you’ll get better at balancing love and friendships next time around.

Death of a Loved One

Sometimes we can prepare ourselves for the death of a loved one; other times it is a sudden and complete shock. Out of all the experiences that can make a person feel lonely, this is, by far, one of the worst. It’s so easy to feel depressed and angry, but the key is not to let those emotions consume you. Reach out to friends and family for support, and if you feel like you need more support than they can offer, turn to a counselor or psychic for more care. And if you feel like this kind of loneliness is insurmountable, think about your loved one who has passed. Ask yourself how they would feel if they knew you were wallowing in sadness and depression. They’d want you to move on. They’d want you to be happy and healthy. So, you need to honor yourself and honor their memory and move forward.

    Once upon a time, not so very long ago, we lived in communities which were close knit places where everyone knew and depended on their neighbors. Technological and scientific advances, while wonderful for the overall well-being of humanity, have changed how we work, where we live, how we communicate and, in some ways, have helped to erode that sense of community, leaving people cut off from their neighbors. The advent of telecommuting, while extremely convenient and even crucial for some people, especially parents of young children, has also isolated us from our colleagues. All of these factors have helped to increase the sense of loneliness in many people.

    It’s great to be at peace with being alone and aloneness does not always equate with loneliness. As a child, I was just as happy (and sometimes even happier) alone with a book as I was when out playing with neighborhood friends. As an adult, I still need a fair bit more alone time than many of the people I know.

    But even someone who relishes being on their own needs human interaction every now and then.

    This article gives several wonderful suggestions for building, or rebuilding, just such a network. The most important aspect is to get out there and DO! Nothing will change unless action is taken in the physical world.

    Brightest blessings,

    Thanks for the article on loneliness. What do you do when you have been in a relationship for
    thirty years and your partner has ‘retired’ from life and is in your face from morning to night,
    but you still feel very lonely. I’ve come to realize that my once significant partner has become
    a person I resent and no longer respect or even like most of the time. He lives to argue and
    criticize anyone and everyone who differs from him in their opinions or lifestyle, (most of all me)! We have grown so far apart over the years that he is like having a stranger in my home.
    So much for the promises he made for twenty five years that ‘once he retires, he will spend
    time doing things with his family’, instead he ran off for five years, home to momma’s till she
    died, and now he wants to return to us as though no time has passed and worse, with an
    attitude of entitlement and expecting me to open my arms and accept him like nothing has
    happened these past five years. I however feel that there is a big ‘disconnect’ and can’t see
    the possibility of continuing in a dead-end relationship. What is to prevent him from running
    off again, leaving the family and raising more havoc. Sometimes it is better to be alone, then
    in a relationship where you feel constantly ‘lonely’. Blessed be..,

    Yes, I do feel lonely. I have isolated myself by working a lot which my job demands. I had dated a gal in my hometown that I did care about but I think she was not real honest to me

    My brother lost his wife last year which I took hard, thinking that she may beat the cancer but she did not.

    As long as I keep busy, I am pretty good shape but miss good companionship with a good women. What kind of insite do you have for me.

    All good ones except for one major one…feeling lonely after being single for years and not being able to find a partner that’s compatible. Sometimes having friends and family isn’t enough, especially when you see all your friends getting hitched and you’re still single. The quality men out there suck, and finding a compatible partner that’s not just looking for a hook up or a fwb has been an ultimate challenge. I’m an attractive woman, intelligent, no kids, great career, own my own home, and likes to travel. I’ve been single for 3 yrs. My friends says it’s because I’m intimating to men. I don’t understand it, and it’s starting to make me wonder why what’s so wrong with me that I can’t get a decent partner. Loneliness usually affects me most in the summer when I realize there’s so many things I want to do and no one to do it with. My friends are usually too busy to go on most of my random adventures with me.

    Hi Psychic Burke,

    I am a relatively young widow. Eight years ago, I lost my husband who was the closest friend to me; Since he passed I had only one long relationship who I can honestly say this was the only man I loved besides my husband. But it didn’t work. I guess it was not the right timing.
    Since then, I have tried to date and there was always something happening so it would not work.
    I feel very lonely. I have a brokin heart and a big scratch on my soul. My soul is craving for my other half to show up in my life but I am already getting use to the idea that I might be by myself for the rest of my life. Talking about loneliness in this world! At least I know that when my time comes, my beloved husband will wait for me by the gate…welcoming me to his world…and it comforts me…
    In the meantime I am very busy with work and life but no love story is in the horizon and it makes me sad. Any suggestions?

    Thank you for your input.

    Thank you for this great enlightening idea. It is extremely helpful, inspiring and opens someone’s mind to a new mental thinking process.

    My experience with Loneliness is that if you’re lonely what’s really happening is that you don’t have a great relationship with your Self. It took me years and years to learn that I was my own best company and Solitude is a wonderful friend. Once I realized and experienced this I was never “lonely” again.
