Loneliness comes as a plague and destroys even the most mentally strong ones. With the fast life we are living and cut-throat competition we face in our professional life, we have forgotten to look in the mirror and talk to ourselves. And the way Bollywood has romanticised loneliness, we do not even talk about it casual gatherings due to the taboo that it has become. However, given that it can be a precursor to something more serious, we figured out some of the ways to manage it.

Recognise the reasons for your isolation: Take some time of solitude for yourself and analyse the possible reasons for your desolation. When you question yourself and scrutinise the things that you are going through, you may get answers for the scarcity of people in the forms of friends, near and dear ones to talk to or the ones with whom you share your secrets. Ask yourself questions like, "What are the occasions and times that I am loneliest?" "From when am I suffering from this agony?" and you will surely get answers. And if not the answers then you will at least address the issue head on.

Pen down your thoughts and feelings: Noting down your feelings and emotions on paper can help you in a great way in identifying the causes behind the desolation. To do this, you need to sit alone and write down the thoughts that come to your mind. From the sentiment you are going through to the activities that you do daily. It's a great way to recognise the problems that you face.
