“Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.” – Mother Teresa 

This month, OUT looks at loneliness and how to deal with it…

Realise that loneliness is a feeling, not a fact

Notice your self-defeating thoughts, and change them

Resist the urge to withdraw – reach out

Make a plan and do something. Action fights negative feelings

Find people with similar interests/hobbies, and join them

Focus on the needs of others – volunteer to help

Always show up when meeting someone, and be kind
