Feeling Lonely? Write An Imaginary Letter
Whenever your feeling lonely and blue - write yourself a letter.
When I say write yourself a letter I actually mean it (no im not mad :D), this will help solve your problem and help you to gain confidence in talking about your problems with others.
I know what its like to feel lonely, with no-one to turn to for help or advice, maybe you`ve just lost someone you loved and feel no-one else can help you but they can, you can also help yourself.
In this article im gonna share with you an idea that works for me when I'm feeling lonely.
Grab a piece of pen and a bit of paper and write a letter, pretend you are writing the letter to send off to an agony aunt or someone that you feel comfortable talking to, and in this letter write down everything that is bothering you, and explain why it is that you feel lonely.
Once you have finished writing the letter, go grab yourself something to eat and forget about the letter for a while.
After a couple of hours or days etc open up the letter, but this time read it as if you were the agony aunt, read the entire letter and write a reply giving your advice to this troubled person.
Now compare the two letters and see if you have answered your problems by yourself, also see if its helped identify the source of the problem.
Hopefully the outcome of this will give you some confidence in talking about your problems and will also help you be better at giving advice to friends.
