How to use loneliness for one's own benefit
How can loneliness be recognized? First of all, a lonely one prefers being alone instead of going out with someone. Sounds illogical, but the lonely one usually seems to understand his mental state himself, which in turn makes him feel useless and needless for people. However there may be another explanation. A lonely person avoids hanging out with friends, as he distinguishes himself from each of them because of very unique interests or views. Out of this appears incompatibility causing uncomfortable moments of silence or boredom.
Secondly, a lonely one often prefers to sleep a lot. The daytime he habitually fulfills with unnecessary activity, participates in many social activities, listens to lections and tries to be always in rush. This way he finds a lot of acquaintances in different preferable spheres which don’t oblige him to long hours of conversations and intrusion into his private life. And then at the end of a day he comes home exhausted and falls asleep. As we know, brain work needs huge amount of energy. Sleeping is the only thing which can nourish the organism to the whole extent and totally recharge it.
A lonely person is often predisposed to addictions. Drinking a lot of alcohol, drug consumption, gluttony – all these disorders are caused by the feel of loneliness.
