LonelinessAugust 23, 2022
"I’m So Lonely I Could Cry” by Hank Williams is a song that a lot of people can relate to. At sometime or another, most of us have been lonely. So what can we do to feel better and make some healthy relationships?
Loneliness is a desire to have more human contact. We can do that by choosing to volunteer at an event or a soup kitchen or church, getting a part time job, or signing up for a craft class. Get out and move around by taking a walk at the mall or wait until evening to pass the time of day outside in a park.
Have a sunny day by listening to the music that gives you a lift in your heart and call an old friend.
Remembering ET phone home and reach out and call someone. You can do it!
