How are you all doing??
Is “seasonal loneliness” a real thing as much as “seasonal depression” or am I weird? Do you believe that certain seasons have this effect on you? I certainly do!
For the most part of the year, I feel great about being single and having all that freedom and benefits of being single, but unfortunately when festive time hits, all those negative thoughts about being single drowns me down. I’m still figuring out why this is happening. More I think about it, more I realize is this isn’t just for me. I know in the past, people were so afraid to talk about ones emotions and mental health, but in the recent past with many films being made on this very topic and people openly talking about this has changed a lot for many people. I sometimes feel I’m desperate for a relationship or maybe its just the feeling of getting cozy with someone during holidays is making me feel all of this. I can’t put my finger on a specific reason. I feel so stupid for putting this all out on the internet now, but who cares right? If I can relate to at least 1 person out there, this will be worth it.
If you’re feeling this way right now, just know you’re not alone. Don’t be too harsh on yourself. Be good and kind to yourself. You may not have that ‘special one” to spend your holidays with, but there are many others who are willing to spend it with you. May be its high time to change your expectations and get connected with those people who are willing to go that extra mile with you just to make you happy. It could always be a dear friend, family member or sometimes even a stranger too.
Don’t let this “seasonal loneliness’ take away all the fun you can have during holidays. Take some time how to overcome it. I’m gonna try and do that as well. I’m not gonna let my relationship status take away that festive spirit away from me and keep me from enjoying it all!
