I am lonely....

what can I do about being lonely, depressed, and having no friends? Also, I have anger issues because of the loneliness. I think it is affecting my health too.

  • I agree with above posters. Working out helps a lot. If I don't work out in some way at least three times a week I feel sluggish. Hobbies help a lot too. If you're always productively busy then you will feel so much better. Find something you really like to do and take classes where you can learn more on your hobby and meet new friends. If you're into artsy stuff Michael's and JoAnne's both have good classes. Read, find books you actually like instead of picking up random ones and trying to force yourself to get through them! More importantly than anything get off the internet. I say this kindly it is so easy to waste away two or five or ten hours on the internet and it just makes you feel worse. I know my aunts therapist told her to cut internet back to 30 minutes a day and when she did she said she hated to admit it but she felt so much better. Therapy isn't a bad idea either! Good luck :) Feel better!

  • First off, work out. 2nd, do something special with your kid at least once a week. And if you need medical help than go get it. Everyone gets lonely but no one wants to hurt their family bc of it.

  • Find a hobby, read a book, go take a walk in the park or something. If all that fails, seek help from a professional.
