When experiencing loneliness, the idea of reaching out for help may seem impossible.
REACH OUT FOR SUPPORT.
It’s also important to reach out for help if you cannot handle your loneliness alone or if you are using unhealthy ways to cope with loneliness such as, drinking too much, overeating, or engaging in other unhealthy behaviour can increase your loneliness in the long-term.
Talking therapy allows you to explore and understand your feelings of loneliness and can help you develop positive ways of dealing with them. Therapy offers a safe space to explore the reason you feel lonely.
If you are not ready to speak to a counselor, there are other options for you. There are charity organisations or groups for you to reach out to. Some of these groups organise events/activities that bring people together. You can also reach out to your support system and people you trust.
