10 Reasons You Still Feel Lonely

Going through a rough patch? Here are 10 reasons you still feel lonely.

1. You’re basing your worth off the opinions of others.

2. You’re waiting for other people to make you feel better.

3. You’re hoping a relationship will fix your problems.

4. You haven’t learned how to love and value yourself.

5. You have yet to forgive yourself of your past mistakes.

6. You have never learned to share how you’re truly feeling.

7. You’re spending too much time thinking about your failures.

8. You’re convinced that your life has no purpose.

9. You haven’t learned to let go of the past and embrace God’s grace.

10. You are allowing your emotions to control major life decisions.

Between the ages of 13-18, I dealt with severe depression and anxiety. Although those were some of the darkest years of my life, I learned that these 10 reasons were honest attributes to why I continued to feel lonely in my time of need. I hope these help you or someone you know.

    Jarrid thank you so much for this! I have lately been struggling with my faith and not so sure what I believe anymore and have been feeling extra lonely the past couple of months and this describes me perfectly! I haven’t been praying and seeking advice from other people and this is an encouragement to me! I have always been raised in a Christian home and never faced any real life struggles and people always tell me that it is normal to feel how I am feeling and this opened my eyes to know that I am not the only one and other people struggle to!

    Right on with this post, Jarrid. I recently have learned not to put my worth in other peopl and have also finally fully embraced God’s (amazing) grace. I read Let Hope In by Pete Wilson, and it really helped open my eyes to His love and restoration. Pete says nothing, NOTHING can bring us true happiness unless we first find happiness in God. Truth!

      Thanks Kristen, I appreciate it. Let Hope In is an incredible book. I absolutely love his stuff.
