Loneliness Can Be Very Painful!
You can deal with loneliness, but it still can be a factor in life during stressful or depressing times. In the meantime, if you seem to have more time on your hands alone, make the best of those moments like Jesus did in the scripture on the top of this page. I like what the Bible says in Ecclesiastes 4:12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
When we are kids and have nobody to spend time with when we change jobs or schools when a loved one passes away when we are involved in a divorce, or when we grow old without loved ones around. Reach out people you know and be sure to find your peace with Jesus Christ, make Him your Lord and Savior if you have not done so already? Keep in mind that you may feel loneliness at times, but you are never truly alone when you know God! Beat loneliness with help from your friends and people who are trained to help point you to Jesus Christ and His love, grace, and mercy. ~ Bill Greguska

Some Common Reasons For Loneliness
There are many reasons why people are lonely. Often there are things in life that can pull us away from others. It may be because of rejection, ridicule, being uncomfortable or even picked on or bullied.
To have to deal with it is usually unpleasant for anyone. It commonly happens because of being alone or unconnected with others. When someone loses a significant person in their life it usually always initiates a grief response; in this situation, a person might experience profound loneliness, even while in the company of others.
Feeling lonely compared to actually being socially isolated there is a very clear difference. If a person thinks they are lonely, then they are lonely. People can both be lonely while all by themselves, or in the middle of a gymnasium full of people, or in any size group of individuals.
There are several estimates and indicators why people feel lonely. It has been predicted that about 60 million individuals in the United States, or 20% of the total population, feel alone.
