Loneliness is one of the most common words I hear from people, especially those between the ages of 15 and 45. Several folks in their mid-twenties to early-thirties are finding themselves on their own. Some live in homes with at least one other person. People working from home are those who can collaborate with others online, such as teammates, patients, or pupils.
Then there are some who are unable to work from home but are obligated to remain in their home due to the closure of their work spaces. People are increasingly acutely conscious of being alone, lonely, or suffering loneliness, regardless of why they are at home or how they spent the time.
How does one begin to express the isolation of being trapped behind four walls? There is no one-size-fits-all definition of loneliness; instead, there are a variety of adjectives that can be used to describe it. Several folks I've recently spoken with have described it as feeling confined, deprived, neglected, lost, and alone, among other things. Anxiety, fear, stress, and sadness can all be brought on by loneliness.
In a crowd, at an event, in an office, or on a bus, a lonely individual may feel lonely. Even in a marriage or relationship, one can feel lonely. This is soul-crushing solitude. Is there a lack of closeness between you and your partner? Is there a sense of being left out, of being unwelcome, of being different, of not being accepted? Is there a desire to get out and find some company and support? Or has the need been identified but there is a lack of passion and drive? Is there a history of earlier attempts to discover the correct resources to combat loneliness that failed?
It's critical to recognise that loneliness isn't a disease in and of itself. Loneliness, on the other hand, can become extreme, all-consuming, and obstruct daily life. If this occurs, loneliness has progressed from a passing phase or occurrence to a chronic ailment that might interfere with one's personal and professional life.
