Loneliness is the result of a mismatch between the relationships you have and the relationships you want, an unwelcome feeling of lack or loss of companionship. Anyone can be lonely, even busy people .  Loneliness is bad and more and more people are feeling alone and neglected, either by their loved ones, peers and family.

What is the cause of loneliness?

According to research, loneliness is strongly connected to genetics. However, apart from the hereditary factor, loneliness in the present generation is attributed to the current social-environmental factors like divided families and our fast paced life with less emotional connection. Whether you are living in a big city or in a small farm, there is hardly any social connection resulting in isolation. Other contributing factors include situational variables, such as moving to a new location, divorce and death of a loved one. You may have faced abuse, neglect, and bullying in your growing up years which has  “held you captive” with crippling fear of rejection, can cause that feeling of isolation. The insecurity of childhood has imprinted a feeling of “unworthiness” in your subconscious mind which is blocking your ability to manifest yourself before others. People who lack self-worth are more prone to chronic loneliness than people with high self esteem.
