A Lonely Road Is Dangerous. Want To Get Off It?

American National Suicide Prevention Hotline: 1-800-273-8255

A lonely road is a virtual path. It is a path through life you choose when you make choices that cause you to be alone. Avoiding events is a sure path to loneliness. Alone-ness does not cause loneliness, but make those kind of choices often enough, act upon those choices and you can get disconnected from your friends and family, causing you to become lonely.

This road only gets lonelier as you...

...travel along its length. Each such decision or action can be a mile marker to the destination of loneliness.

As you travel down this virtual path, write a journal of the thoughts you have during your free time. Do this for two weeks. At the end of two weeks examine your journal.

If you find that a lot of your thoughts are negative and show that you have no hope of recovering from your loneliness, get yourself some help. Loneliness causes a person to have negative thoughts. So you will most likely need help from an individual other than yourself. You are on a road to a very dangerous destination and you need to find a way to get off this road.


Since this virtual path can take you to a dangerous destination of loneliness it can also be used to travel from your loneliness back to friendship and a happy position in society. Spend a weekend going over the choices and actions that got you to your current position on this road. Then consciously take steps to reverse the effects of those choices and actions.

Realize that it is your own choices, temperament and actions that got you where you are. If you make an effort to think positively and make certain choices, you can reverse the effect of your earlier choices and actions.
