EP, walk the dog, listen to music, cook, clean, read.
Think about all the good in your life. Sometimes its easy to forget how much we actually have in our lives.
I sit and think about all those that I could have sworn to be my closest companions. Truly and honestly the only close friend that I have is myself and that's even hard to trust at times. I sit and figuratively collect all my thoughts and emotions in a bucket and hope that one day someone who actually gives a damn about me will reach out a hand to help me overturn that oversized monster.
There is nothing inherently wrong I think to feeling lonely. It maybe feels negative but ah, watching the telly, relaxing, and making yourself a lovely snack or meal is hellishly great after a week of work!<br />
It is also very very important to get some fresh air. Go out, and buy a newspaper/comic or whatever even if it is pouring/snowing/etc.
go to movies
i just find something to do...go to the movies, pat the cats, start a project, sometimes i just go to bed and hide.
Looking at my dragons bring me peace. I love soft electronic music, and tinkering with something interesting.
GuitarGirl, it seems that your loneliness could be a catalyst for some intensive songwriting & composing sessions. Performing live is a fabulous way of sharing your energy with an audience who may be lonely too.
Why forget? Loneliness draws you back into yourself. Dont numb yourself but be yourself. Sit on a bench, close your eyes and listen. Walk in a forest and feel that you are part of the world. That you are, without the label man, husband, child, handsome, ugly, fat, or whatever. Be like a cat, basking in the sun.
Watch TV, look at the internet, listen to music, sing a song, think why you are here.
sometimes I drink... not the best solution... or I text a friend or try to call someone, also it does not always work... going for a walk or listening to music, or messing around online can help too
