A lonely beach is a great place to feel
alone, lonely or wonderful. It depends upon what's inside you. It is very easy for
thoughts to get imprinted on you when you are at a beach. It
is also very easy to feel close to God and feel the strong primal
connection to this earth.
At a beach a lonely person can feel
connected with nature. The solutions, however, have to come from
within you. It is a great place to be in solitude and look into your
own mind and find the solutions for overcoming your loneliness. With the beautiful surroundings it is easy to give your resourcefulness full play.
There are some beaches in South
East Asia that have become famous with simply a name implying a secluded beach. Those beaches are tourist destinations and not necessarily places for lonely people!
To a chronically lonely person life
itself may feel like a lonesome beach.
Such a person may feel that s/he is out
there for everyone to see and ignore!
That is just a depressing
feeling and the answer to overcoming it lies in action.
The lonely person has to get up and start
performing some action. One can always find some activity to engage
in. Once the activity is started the endorphins kick in, supplies may
need to be purchased and before you know it you are out shopping. Your activity becomes your surrogate companion.
If you would prefer not to start some
activity for yourself, look for opportunities to volunteer.
Volunteering is a surefire way of getting you active and out amongst
people. From now, on let the mention of the word “beach”
spur you into action to overcome loneliness.
