How We Become Lonely And What It Does To Our Mind And Body
We all want someone in our lives not as just a friend. Those of us who haven’t found anyone yet are still waiting patiently for Mr./Ms. Right to walk into our lives and make it better. Finding that person gives us the motivation to improve our physical as well as mental state and to be the best version of ourselves for them.
But, what about the people who have not found anybody and are still waiting to find someone? What about the people who have been rejected time and time again? Do you have any idea how soul crushing loneliness can be? Today, find out the reality of loneliness and how much damage it can do to a person.
1You spend too much time shopping
When you’re lonely you tend to do things just to pass the time. One of them includes shopping; it can be in real life or just online. People do this to fill that void of not having someone leaves in their life. This at first is quite natural and isn’t harmful but it can turn into an addiction that will cause financial issues down the line.
2How this can ruin your life
Getting addicted to shopping will drain you of energy and not to mention cause you financial troubles. Another thing is you’ll be so addicted to it that you won’t want to do your job or other smaller things. You’ll notice that your house is messy and things are piling up for you to do.
3You’ll be hungry
Food is another substance that you’ll fall back on if you are lonely. And this will not be the normal healthy food; it’ll be junk food like a chocolate bar, tasty donuts, burgers, fries and pizza. This normally will make you feel better while eating but might make you a bit depressed after you’re finished.
4Why we eat when we’re lonely
The reason behind our appetite when we’re lonely is because, on a subconscious level, we’re trying to make our lives feel better by eating tasty food. When our body needs food it creates a hunger hormone called ‘ghrelin’. Studies have shown that there is a connection between hunger hormone and loneliness.
5We lose friends
Yes, when we’re lonely we tend to avoid our friends, especially the ones who are in relationships. We actually lose track of time and forget that we need to stay in contact with them which is something that they do not understand and they perceive us to be anti-social.
