Loneliness Therapy in Watertown, MA—Counseling for Loneliness and Social Isolation

There are so many aspects of loneliness, all of which can have a huge impact on a person’s well-being. If you’re stuck in what seems like an endless cycle of loneliness and social isolation it can seem like there’s no way out. However, loneliness therapy at Thriveworks Counseling in Watertown, MA can help. A loneliness therapist can help you understand where these feelings stem from and work your way out of it.

Until then, you can help yourself. Keep these four facts in mind as you work to pull yourself out of your feelings:

1. Many of the obstacles are only in your head.

When you feel lonely, isolated, and depressed, you’re likely to spend a lot of time in your own head thinking about the way you feel. You may blame yourself, you may think you should be able to just magically pull yourself out of it. You may also feel that others are rejecting you or that people are out to get you. Remember that many of these thoughts are actually just that—thoughts. They are not reality.

2. Small steps are the best way to get out of your funk.

Thinking about all the things necessary to make yourself feel better can be overwhelming. The truth though is this: it all starts with a single step. You don’t have to do everything you possibly can tomorrow. Instead, just try making a single phone call. Reach out to a friend that’s going through a hard time, or congratulate a friend who’s just had some good news.

3. You do have time for relationships.

One of the most viscous parts of the loneliness cycle is the point at which people start to believe that they really don’t have time for relationships. The truth is that you do. It may not feel like it, but it’s all about prioritizing. You’d likely make the time for a life-saving medical procedure, right? Think of shirking off your loneliness as equally important and you’ll find the time for friends and family.

4. You don’t have to do it on your own.

By its very definition, loneliness makes you feel like you’re all alone. In reality, there are trained counselors out there who can assess your individual situation and find the right path forward for you. Thriveworks Counseling in Watertown can help you. Reach out to us today to schedule an appointment.
