Being Alone is okay but feeling lonely is not.
Tonight, I am alone lying on my bed while browsing the internet. Suddenly, the tagline "Alone but not Lonely" popped up into my mind.
There were times when we felt so lonely and felt like we were just alone in this world. Yeah, I rarely feel that. We feel this feeling when something is bothering us; when we do not understand the things around us and when we do not have someone to lean on when we are broken nor someone whom to talk to when we wanted to burse out the pain inside of us.
We even sometimes suddenly feel lonely when we get tired and lost motivation for we do not know why we are doing something. It is hard to deal with the feeling of loneliness that everyone experiences it for we can also possibly feel it wherever we are, even when we are with other people.
Tonight, as the clock ticking, my neighbors are going to sleep. I am here lying on my bed waiting for my eyes to be tired and sleepy. As I am literally alone, I was surprised for I do not feel sadness and the feeling of loneliness. This makes me smile and happy as well. This is one of the moments that I always wanted to cherish the most for I am a person who usually felt an emptiness when alone especially when I am bothered.
I like "me time" but not at the point of being alone every day. It makes me preoccupied and sometimes anxious. Tears were felt sometimes too for I do not understand what the feeling I have inside. But tonight is totally different. Yes, I am alone but no feeling of loneliness and that is what matters.
Before ending this article, I am going to share with you some of my ways that help me to deal with loneliness. These ways might help you too.
Do all the things that make you happy. I sometimes do this especially when I feel so lonely. I listen to upbeat music and watch some funny videos on Facebook or performances of my favorite artist on YouTube. An of course, making noise and writing articles.
Hang with with your family of you can. Even I am at home I just hang with my family when they are at home so, I just usually send them messages reminding to always be safe and sometimes greet them.
Get a temporary job. Whatever temporary job it is, as long as you are happy doing it and it is legal then take it. As of now, I have limited work unlike before so I consider it as a temporary job and somewhat enough to make my mind occupies and forget the loneliness I feel inside.
Chit-chat with friends. Since this pandemic started, I often exchange message to my college friends and we even often see each other often. It really helps me to unwind and relax.
Always be positive. I am not always positive in all situations but I always tried my very best to be one for this is one of my way to avoid being anxious for many things that might give me the feeling of loneliness.
Always remember that loneliness does not last forever.
😊 Good night!
