Feeling Lonely?

The feeling of being empty inside can make us lonely, or even depressed. I have a friend who got cheated on by his girlfriend about three months ago. She felt she didn’t have a future with him. Even though he said that both of them made mistakes in their relationships, he felt that he could have treated her better. Both of them have strong characters, so they clash with each other. I told him not too worry about it because everything happens for a reason. There were many flaws in his relationships and he felt somewhat good that it ended. He spent a year and half with his ex-girlfriend, and he didn’t like how it ended. Like I said, everything happens for a reason.

During his three months of being single, he has been dating around. From time to time, he keeps telling me that he missed having a girlfriend. At this point, I know he feels lonely because he is used to having someone on his side. He likes to dance, hang out, and eat at good restaurants with a person he loves. Even though he is recuperating by dating around, he doesn’t want to feel lonely.

Overall, being lonely can help you get stronger. You will have more time for yourself so you can evaluate what you want in life, love, and relationships. If you feel lonely, try to date other people, or hang out with friends and family. Just don’t let loneliness overtake you!
