Remember that thoughts are not facts. So, nailing down some specific negative thoughts you have about your feelings of loneliness may be a start in helping you to realize how exaggerated they are. Things like, “I’m not worth anything, nobody likes me” or “There is no hope for connecting with others, they all like somebody else” are examples of how we all have thoughts that are overblown or just wrong.
The point of this kind of mindful awareness to change emotions is to identify the thoughts that are exaggerated or distorted and then work (with a therapist, and then on your own or with a family member or friend) to change this way of thinking.
