Mar 20 07:36 2012 Gen Wright Print This Article

At some point in a person's life - whether man or woman - there will be a feeling of sadness and a feeling of loneliness.

It is unavoidable. Just the way that life springs eternal. Not every relationship will be the right fit,Guest Posting and when one falls through, either the man or the woman, who feels like the "loser" in the relationship, will find it difficult bouncing back. But relationships are not all destined to fail, and men and women both can find a great deal of hope for their relationships as populations continue to increase, and it becomes easier to connect on a deeper, more emotional human level. So if you have been affected by a relationship breakup, and if you are currently a single man or woman, what can you do about sadness and loneliness? Start by answering the following three questions:

What is the cause?

Sadness and loneliness are closely related, but they are not exactly the same. Sadness is an emotional response to a negative event in one's life. Loneliness is the feeling that no one in the world understands who you are or what you are about. Sadness grows out of loneliness often times. Any time you lose a loved one, or watch as a relationship that you value deteriorates, you are in danger of experiencing both of these things. First, sadness at having lost someone you held dear. Second, loneliness at the fear that you will never be able to replace that happiness you once had as long as you are alive.

What are the consequences?

The consequences of a failed relationship on the man or woman, whose relationship has ended, is that they may steer toward destructive behaviors. Many men and women find themselves drinking in excess after a relationship goes sour. They may also be more open to experimenting with drugs or other people, who are clearly a bad fit for their emotional well being. At the end of the day, the goal is to replace the sadness and loneliness with something of value. But trying to do that with something that will only cause more sadness and more loneliness is definitely not the right way to go.

What can be done to stop it?

The most important thing one can do when they experience sadness and loneliness as a result of the single life is to take a deeper look at themselves. Learn to love yourself by cultivating interests and engaging in healthier forms of experimentation to try and expand your horizons, and you may just find a new chapter to life that was 100 times better than the old one. Love yourself, in other words, if you ever expect anyone to love you back.
