With Christmas & New Year behind us & Valentines Day just around the corner. I can’t help but think about all the people suffering from loneliness. Loneliness comes in all shapes & sizes depending on what the individual feels they are lacking in there life.
A person maybe saddened by the loss of a partner , family or friends. Social media & advertisers can make matters worse, reason being that we are bombarded with images of perfect people living perfect life’s. Then us humans tend to compare ourselves to other people’s lives.
If a person feels that there lives aren’t as good as another persons life, they could be left feeling inadequate & unhappy. When we experience feelings of inadequacy & sadness it can affect our self esteem detrimentally.
This can become a vicious cycle where a person thinks they are not good enough & that’s why they do not have the life they want. Negative thought patterns can run away with us. If not monitored or challenged negative thinking usually leads to more negative thoughts ,such as other people have perfect lives because they are better than me.
This is where counselling can become life Changing. A good counsellor will help you to identify your irrational thought patterns & view life more realistically.
