Before getting into the different ways to prevent loneliness, I want to talk a little about being alone. If you’re really uncomfortable being by yourself, then solo travel might be exactly what you need. We usually don’t like being alone because of where our minds go and the thoughts that come in. So forcing yourself to sit with those ideas might actually result in self- growth and awareness that you didn’t know you needed.
Get comfortable with yourself. I used to hate being alone and now I love it. I love spending time with myself because I actually like who I am! (woah, did I just write that?) It feels good to unwind sometimes and just sit with myself whether it be Netflix, mediation, yoga, a good book, or just driving. You will inevitably learn a lot about yourself when the only person you can depend on is you.
