"Be courageous, be adventurous, and sign up for something new and out of your comfort zone,” Didi Wong, Integrative Wellness and Life Coach tells Bustle.
Wong suggests taking salsa lessons, traveling, and checking out art exhibits. You can even volunteer, take a language class, or even join a dating site. If you are uncomfortable going solo, then ask a friend to join you. The more you communicate with others, the more likely you are to be invited to places. But above all else, “In order for things to change (and in a positive way), you have to think in a positive way. It can be really intimidating at first, but you will never know until you try,” Wong says. “Be fearless, and put yourself out there – you are worth it for someone to meet!”
Most importantly, know that you don't have to feel like this. “Loneliness is a feeling that can be erased,” Wong tells Bustle. “We live in a world full of wonders, and there is so much that is yet to be discovered."
