Just ended a long-term relationship? Been single for a while? Whichever it is, it’s common to feel lonely and confused. When we feel this way, it’s natural to desire someone or something to fill that void of emptiness.
Focus on yourself
Instead of pushing yourself to hang out with others when you’re not in the mood, use that time for yourself.
Go to the hair salon. Make yourself feel beautiful. Read a new book or watch a movie. Do things that make you feel relaxed and comfortable. Spending time with alone allows you to discover qualities about yourself that you love, and some that you’d like to change. All of them will help you understand that you don’t always need to be around others.
Try a new interest or hobby
Get out there and try something new. You don’t have to do something that’s totally out of your comfort zone. It could be something as simple as taking a dancing class or cooking class.
Now is the time. Just do whatever interests you and allows you to experience something new.
Once you’ve found something that makes you happy, keep doing it! Focus on yourself and what brings you joy and fulfilment.
Spend quality time with your friends
Friends will be with you whether you’re in a relationship or single. They’ll give you much-needed support as you go through life
So don’t just jump straight into dates with random guys. Spend that time with your friends having coffee and talking or nights out with the girls. Enjoy it! Friends will help you realize true happiness and the person you really are.
