vMan is a social animal who has evolved while living in different societies. Social relationships form the basis of mutual growth and satisfaction. However, there are many people who live single and are still happy. Looking at them, one question may arise in our mind, “Doesn’t he feel lonely?”
Loneliness or being alone is not being alone; It means that you are feeling lonely. This feeling can also be triggered when you are in a crowd. Loneliness means feeling isolated from oneself, others and society.
The feeling of “I am alone” is like an octopus wrapping its strong arms around someone to make one feel sad and trapped in a dark veil of negativity. This bitter feeling is usually experienced more during difficult times, such as during the Covid-19 pandemic and war. The moment we start feeling lonely, all our attention goes to it and then we bow down to it only to suffer.

When we fail to adjust with others’ way of thinking, we feel frustrated from within. Even though we want to connect with the people around us, we can’t. This inner weakness leads us to negative thoughts.
Akram Vigyan is a spiritual science that suggests that the root cause of feeling lonely is a lack of true understanding of oneself.

However, when one stops watching or eating, the same feeling of loneliness reappears. It means that we are not accepting this feeling but running away from it. Thus, admitting “I feel lonely” is the first step in overcoming it. Only then can we find a way out of it.
Confronting Negative Thoughts: Negative thoughts control us only as long as we allow them to remain within us. Not listening to them and immediately converting them into positive thoughts helps to improve our determination and confidence. Right understanding and positivity act as countermeasures here. If we do not use them, we will never be able to come out of this negativity. By reading biographies and books that highlight the life events of great people who went through a similar phase of life, we can gain both right understanding and positivity.
