In this week's episode, we discuss loneliness and isolation.
Listen as we explain the differences between loneliness and being alone, and how the imposed isolation resulting from the pandemic and its effects on our psyche.
Dive in as we talk about experiencing loneliness throughout and after the healing process. Learn the importance of reclaiming yourself through loneliness and isolation.
Key takeaways from this episode:
1. Loneliness can come up whenever we feel alone, unwanted, or isolated. Some episodes are acute and others can be chronic and debilitating.
2. Purpose can be connected to having significance and belonging. Belonging to a group or family can alleviate feelings of isolation.
3. Recognize when loneliness can show up in your life- whether you are feeling alone in a crowded room and you don’t fit in, or if the people around you are not supportive to and of you.
4. Ask yourself: is fear holding me back from creating and maintaining connections with others? How can I take calculated risks to move forward with having social connectedness to others?
