This fear is so strong that they have hand tremors heartbeat quickens and voice, dizzy, starts vomiting, so they better remain at home "in their own interests than to expose myself to stress.

But their loneliness forced and painful, and can only help them psychotherapist who will find out the cause of the phobia and help to cope with it. A common cause of sociofobii lies in low self-esteem. "You're dumb or what?" said dad child bringing a bad evaluation. "You WIMP!" — tells him coach. "Well, you and fatty!" — laugh at girl children.

Some people choose loneliness consciously. They had experience, which turned out to be unfortunate for them, so they decided that it would no longer be repeated. They like the freedom that they have gained.

French author Herve Bazin, author of the popular novel "married life," noticed that marriage is like a beleaguered fortress: those who are outside, eager to be inside; those who got inside, dream of escaping to the outside.

To keep friendships or dating relationship, you need to work on them: it is impossible to keep the person became of us boring and bad.

Often survivors of parting, get depressed. But then the feeling of the end of the world gives way to joy of freedom: they get rid of feelings of guilt, they were married. "Why has brought little money?", "why there is no soup today?" and "because of you I have not defended", "where have you been? You should have a long time back "— similar questions put a person in a position of odd kitten and reduces his self-esteem, he gradually ceases to respect themselves. And now, when you are ready, no hurry to disturb his peace and enter into new relationships.

Single remain and people bringing other inflated claims. Besides these requirements often do not correspond to their own status.

"I am so lonely," he complains to friends after unsuccessful searches.

Another reason why loneliness is intolerance. "I was straining the loneliness, but annoy other people! This snoring, and he throws a wet towel anywhere. 3rd constantly takes the bathroom, and I can't get there when I need to! No, better I'll be the one "— makes your choice a woman. "She can't cook so tasty as my mom. She laid my things in my closet, and now I can not find anything. And all of a sudden she wants children and begins to claim the money? And I'll have to work three times more to all contain. Why do I need it? One, but without any problems, "Decides to man.

"In fact, my kind of loneliness to survive the hardest. Loneliness does not mean that you are locked alone in his room. You can be in a crowded place and still feel most lonely man, because nobody really does not belong "— Freddie Mercury.

However, the loneliness of modern humans differ from the loneliness of people who lived during the time when almost the only entertainment was a tv and books. Now it is not experienced as acute, because to all sorts of social networks and websites, where they find the company of interest. Some of them get an extensive correspondence and often come up with a "legend", posing as a person of the opposite sex, age and social status.

Often people become fixated on her alone or, worse, ozlobljajutsja. They feel "strangers at this celebration of life," and spend their weekend home, only to see a company not the busiest of people. It seems that all of them look and think: "are you the one, one …", and then the loneliness is even sharper.

But, as the saying goes, you can't change the circumstances change their attitude towards him. Remember the Sage words of "always" and take to solitude as a temporary phenomenon. But because lying stone and water is not flowing, you need to act. No one knows that somewhere on the eighth floor in one of the houses of the sleeping area sits lonely Sasha or lonely and suffers from loneliness. "Just do it!" — come out in people.

At the same time constantly denying people in meetings and requests assistance, can be accomplished only one thing: they will cease to apply to us, and then completely forget about our existence. And we just have to wonder why no one is nearby.
