Being With Yourself


  • Change is never easy and it’s normal to feel lonely at times when you’re in a new place – whether it’s a new physical place or just a new phase of your life.
  • If you are experiencing loneliness over an extended period of time, try to change your daily patterns to give you an opportunity to connect with new and different people.
  • Don’t be afraid to reach out to people you trust and let them know how you are feeling.

Role of Solitude

  • When we are going through transitions in our lives, spending a certain amount of time alone can help us to pause, recharge and reflect on life. 
  • Pauses can help us reflect on what is going well, changes we might like to make and plans for how to move ahead.
  • Different people need different amounts of solitude. Do what feels right for you.


  • Being self-aware can help you through many challenging times in your life.
  • Self-awareness can also be important to the type of relationships you choose, how you function in those relationships, and what you expect and need from those relationships.
  • Spend some time getting to know yourself - it is time well spent.
