Talk to someone who’s lonely.

We all have experienced it. The times we’ve felt lonely. It’s hard. For some, it can be extremely hard. Loneliness, unrelieved, might even lead to depression and a feeling of hopelessness.

Do you know someone who’s lonely? Someone who has recently moved to a strange town, someone whose spouse has passed away, someone who feels abandoned by friends?

Perhaps you could casually approach and talk to them. About friendly, everyday things. If it seems they don’t want to talk much, then perhaps tell them about what you did last weekend. Or the funny thing your child did. Or the crazy thing your boss said. Or simply make a comment about the weather.

They will appreciate your warmth. Even if they don’t say it.

They will feel less lonely.

    Hello, I love your blog, and I just wanted you to know that I mentioned you on my blog this morning. I really think you have great ideas and you have given me a lot of things to think about, and I thank you for that. Such an encouraging blog. Have a great day.

  2. Sometimes a lonely person just wants to have someone listen to them for a bit, and it can be an act of great generosity to be that someone.
