How Do I Stop Being So Lonely?

Feeling lonely? Don't worry, you're not the only one, and whether you're in a romantic relationship or not, there are ways to get out of your funk and around more people. Being "Alone" Doesn’t Mean Being "Lonely"

In this video, Psychotherapist, Author and YourTango Expert Julie Orlov helps a reader who's been single for a while after a tough breakup. While happy, she's also incredibly lonely and feels hopeless about meeting someone who can fill that void in her life. She wants to replace those thoughts with something positive.

As Julie points out, feeling lonely often has nothing to do with being single. However, there are some things you can do to overcome it, such as reaching out to family and friends that you love and making an effort to connect with them. Julie also suggests taking time to connect with yourself and nurture that relationship by doing things that you find fun and enjoyable.
