Everyone has those days where you just feel lonely. It doesn’t matter how many people you’re surrounded by— you still feel like no one likes you, and you start hating on yourself. Here are a few things to remember during those times:
1. You didn’t do anything wrong.
Yes, there will be times when you feel isolated. And you’ll wonder to yourself what you did wrong. But the answer is nothing. Sometimes you aren’t meant to be in that group and that just gives you the opportunity to find the group that you deserve.
Even when you feel a little isolated from friends and family, you are still loved. Your parent(s) and close friends love you more than you know. When you're not feeling loved, I would recommend you do two things: tell your friends and family what you are feeling and talk to the Unconditional Lover. There is someone that loves you in every circumstance, and His name is Jesus. Even in the loneliest situations, He’s standing right there with you.
2. You are loved.
Your friends and family love you. Way more than you know. There will always be someone who will answer your phone calls and get ice cream with you. Sometimes being alone is okay, but when you feel lonely, make sure you reach out to those who have always been there for you.
3. You deserve some alone time.
You often can get caught up in trying to please everyone. All your efforts are worthwhile but sometimes are not seen. That’s when you need to decide to step back and take time to take care of yourself.
4. You can overcome this.
It’s hard to deal with things by yourself. I get it. And if you truly feel like you have no one to turn to, take a lot of time to yourself. Do what makes you happy to help cope with whatever it is you are dealing with. It gets better.
5. There’s another lonely person out there.
Remember that you’re never alone. One day, you will come across someone who is going through what you went through. You’ll be able to relate to that person and you can then help them through it as well. Everyone has feelings and everyone needs someone to talk to.
