“The worst loneliness is not to be comfortable with yourself.” ~ Mark Twain

Dealing with loneliness can be difficult, but a good first step is to face the feeling. Begin by becoming more relaxed. Choose a comfortable position, and take a few moments just to breathe. Allow yourself to breathe slowly and naturally, doing nothing else in this moment besides concentrating on your breaths.

Stay positive. You can choose to be happy or sad, fulfilled or lonely. Get used to having a positive mindset by being conscious of your negative thoughts. When you start to think negatively about something, turn that thought around into something for which you are grateful. Surround yourself with positive influences such as an upbeat music selection, happy movies and spiritual texts that align with your ideal philosophies. The happier you are, the easier it is to feel appreciative of your many blessings.

Commit to something. Tons of volunteer opportunities are just waiting for you to raise your hand. Find a volunteer opportunity that involves being in constant contact with other people. The more you volunteer in social environments, the more people you will meet and the better you will feel about your own circumstances.

Get out of the house and have fun. Come up with a list of your favorite activities or try to come up with hobbies that you would like to try. Look at entertainment guides in the local newspaper and online and write down what looks best to you. Be willing to meet all kinds of new people.
If you’re getting out of the house on a regular basis, chances are high that you’ve started to come into contact with some of the same people on a regular basis. Once you get a chance to spend some quality time with people, find the people with whom you feel the most connected. Share some personal information or life opinions and if they reciprocate, you are on your way to building a deeper, lasting friendship.
