โฃ๏ธI know it’s easier said than done, but being alone is ok? Stop jumping into relationships because you can’t stand the loneliness!

Here are 4 Tips to help combat the lonely days.

Use these steps to help you stop feeling the need for companionship. ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

๐Ÿ’žGet Comfortable Being Alone

Enjoy your own company. Take time out to get to know yourself better. Write a journal and chart your thoughts and feelings when you are feeling lonely. Take yourself out on dates, be it for a dinner at a nice restaurant or a movie that youโ€™ve been waiting to see. Once you are comfortable with your own company, other people are more likely to enjoy spending time with you as well.

๐Ÿ’žGet Animal Companionship ๐Ÿถ(my fav)

Thereโ€™s nothing quite like having a dog waiting for you by the door when you get home, or a cat purring on your pillow. Animals make marvellous companions โ€“ they love unconditionally and are unfailingly loyal. Walking your dog can be a great way to meet new people as well. Smaller animals such as hamsters or geckos can also make you feel needed if you do not want to commit to getting a dog or cat.

๐Ÿ’žGet Out of the House

Get out of the house when you can instead of allowing yourself to wallow in loneliness.Go outside, get some fresh air, go to the mall, the park or even just the grocery store. Make an effort to speak to at least someone, even if itโ€™s only a sales assistant.

๐Ÿ’žGet Involved in a Local Cause

Are you concerned about the environment? Passionate about inner-city education? Volunteer your time and skills at the local library, civic organization, or charitable foundation. Helping others will make you feel good about yourself, occupy your mind, and stop you from thinking about how alone you are. Having a shared interest is also a great way to develop new friendships.

Now…all of these tips I have actually used before I met my hubby! I learned so much about myself during this time!

Ladies self~love also means enjoying YOU!
