Conquering Loneliness

Conquering Loneliness

Loneliness is one of the biggest battles as a single woman living alone.  Here are some ways to avoid loneliness:

  • Invite a friend or family member to go on a picnic, or to the zoo, or to a museum. Be creative.
  • Take a class (NOT online)
  • Join a bowling league (or any sport or other activity where you have to leave your home)
  • Host a girl’s night out (or in); invite more than just single women; hire a babysitter for those with children & the dad’s will also get a night out. Have a crafting party or a spa party or a movie night.  Have lots of food; have a few games and activities and visiting.  This is good to get to know many different ladies in your life ~ you’ll have a wonderful group of ladies to advise & pray for you when needed.
  • Spend a weekend helping out in a soup kitchen; go visit the elderly or housebound; be a “big sister”, etc.
  • Adopt a pet (a dog ~ you’ll have to be proactive in its care ~ take it for a walk or to the dog park). You’ll also get lots of love!

What are some ideas that you have or used to conquer loneliness?  Please comment below.
