For the next few weeks, I will provide 5 remedies for exposing and resolving the loneliness factor. You might feel lonely and hopeless at times, believing no one could relate to your life. Then, a sudden unexpected turn of events happens to create significant disruptions in your life. Perhaps there were devastating events that led to the death of your family members or friends, who withered away during your winter storms. A person with authority over you used their position to make you feel emotionally inferior. Now, some of these behaviors are impossible to overlook and explain. There are no excuses for the actions of others that left you wounded and isolated. But these realities can’t sugarcoat your suffering. With that in mind, here is the first remedy to overcome lockdown loneliness.
Remedy #1 Overcoming Social Isolations
Spend some time in solitude to acknowledge your emotional wounds. How about keeping a journal to express your emotional rollercoaster? Some prefer notepads or their smartphone to express their thoughts. With the physical presence of a pen and notebook, I feel a connection with the words that flow through my mind. When I use a smartphone or an iPad, I suddenly need to acknowledge those keyboard commands that have those errors underlined. That doesn’t allow me to release tension. Those computer commands can make me angrier because it demands perfection.
Nope, I like ink on paper and my safe space to be messy at times. Now, as we are in a global pandemic and experiencing disruptions on every level, emotionally, economically, why not whip out a notebook to jot down your daily mission logs? Process your thoughts and mental agony on a notepad. Journaling really empowers you to look at how you can make some changes that could be beneficial for you and help you figure out what strategies might work better for you.
