There are times in our lives when we feel lonely. We have no one to go to. It feels as if the world is going to end. It’s that stage of life that looks like the end of happiness and the very beginning of depression. But like everything, it too passes. Loneliness is overrated. If you embrace it, you will see a completely new and stronger version of yourself.
Read on as we explain how loneliness makes you a stronger person.
1. Being alone proves that you, and only you, can be your best friend.
The harsh truth of life is that people give up on you after a while. Sometimes even your closest friends. There’s no one to fix your troubles and only you can make yourself feel better. After you learn to be happy alone, your expectations from people will reduce.
2. You learn that there is nothing unmanageable.
When you are lonely, you handle every situation on your own. Settling into to a new city, getting used to a new office, healing after a breakup, and everything else. Each and everything is sorted on its own. You realise that sadness associated with loneliness is not as bad. It gets over and things get better.
3. With time, you learn to control your emotions.
Things get better with time. However, the bigger truth is that you get better with time. You learn to subside your emotions and you learn how to not get swayed by them. It is something everyone should learn because our emotions often take out the worst in us.
