The good news about loneliness is that you have lots of other people feeling the same way who are also looking for a meaningful connection.
Looking for friendship is a surefire way not to find it.
Spend all efforts on being the person you want to be not someone you think others might like.
Think of yourself as an icebreaker – most people are looking for someone to go first so hit start.
Loneliness is not shameful or embarrassing – it means you are hungry for stimulation and compassion.
A social media friend is not necessarily a friend – loneliness is combatted in real time.
Your new motto – do, don’t stew. Reach out.
Loneliness is a choice, but there are better ones like anticipating something positive that can happen when you decide to replace it with friendliness.
