Loneliness Counseling in Greensboro, NC—Lonely Feelings and Social Isolation

Do you believe that social isolation and loneliness are the same thing? If so, you’re not alone. Many people assume that they are the same thing when in fact they’re not. A person who’s experiencing social isolation is someone who’s physically separated from the people who matter in their life. They are not experiencing fulfilling relationships.

Compare that to loneliness, which is when people feel like they’re not a part of the world. They could have plenty of close relationships with people they love and still experience loneliness. No one is immune and it’s nothing to feel shameful about.

Lasting Effects of Loneliness and Social Isolation

It’s important not to take these issues lightly. Loneliness and social isolation have bigger consequences than just leaving a person feeling sad. They can actually lead to aches and pains, insomnia, too much sleeping, depression, changes in appetite, substance abuse, and even suicidal thoughts. It’s essential to get treatment to prevent or minimize these effects.

Is There Really a Solution?

Many people feel that there’s no solution to their loneliness or social isolation. They’ve tried to just create new relationships but they can’t. They’ve tried to just tell themselves they feel better and go out in the world but it hasn’t worked. The good news is that this doesn’t mean there is nothing that can help – we can.

Counselors can get down to the bottom of the core issues leading to the conditions. Perhaps it’s an issue where the client is literally separated from the people they care about based on their location. In other cases, they may be afraid of intimacy. Of course, medical conditions like depression can also be the culprit. Your counselor will help you get the answers you need.
