Depressed by Loneliness?
Loneliness can be a painful emotional condition to be in. Having a relationship or a partner at a very young age too has become a norm. Individuals who do not want to rush into a relationship early may find themselves lonely, frustrated, depressed, out of place due to romance and relationships all around them.
The peer pressure and the hype created about romance can make them feel utterly alone, incomplete, hopeless and helpless as they just may not be able to decide whether they need a relationship or not. If they decide that they do not want a relationship now, they may suffer sudden bolts of loneliness or hollowness when they come across a romantic couple or watch a movie or listen to music that celebrates love and romance.
An individual who decides to get into a relationship may not actually be ready for a relationship but may enter it because it is the norm, or to cope with his/her single status, to feel what it means to be in a relationship, if it is as good as others make it out to be, to fill up the void in their personal life etc. Perhaps an experience of a relationship may help them to understand better if they need a relationship or if they are better off on their own.
You can alleviate your feelings of loneliness by distracting your attention and energy from things that make you feel lonely. For example, have a friends group where most of them are single and freak out with them rather than being with a person who cannot stop talking about his/her love life.
Use your free time to get into some adventure and fun activity, say camping, adventure sports, sports like cycling, badminton, tennis or swimming that help in releasing the pent up energy. You can also take part in dance classes, drama groups, writing poems or stories or drawing sessions that act as an outlet for releasing your creative talent and emotions.
