How do I get out of isolation?
A person is a social being who cannot live alone and needs social relations for mental and social development, and a person may tend to live in isolation, and this situation is not normal and has many reasons.
Causes of social isolation:
- Exposure to bullying and persecution as a child, from surrounding people, such as friends, parents, or classmates.
- Exposure to family conflicts when you were young.
- Exposure to violence or sexual abuse as a child.
- Isolation may be the result of some health problems, such as an imbalance in the secretion of serotonin, a chemical substance responsible for regulating and improving mood.
- The presence of an increase in stimulation of the amygdala as it works to control the response to fear and anxiety, and this increased stimulation may lead to some psychological disorders and thus social isolation.
- Children may become socially isolated as a result of observing the behaviour of parents with this disorder.
- Children may also become socially isolated because of the over-control of parents in order to protect.
There are also reasons for the state of social isolation, but they are surprising reasons:
- Loss of a dear person.
- Mood Swings.
- A sudden shock
- Failure in the study.
- Firing from a job.
- Loss of a large sum of money.
- Fear of rejection
- Negative outlook.
Cases of social isolation may lead to many physical and mental illnesses, such as heart disease, depression, obesity, high blood pressure and weakened immunity.
There are many solutions to get out of isolation:
- Confront yourself with your pros and cons.
- Communicate with your family and friends.
- Communicate with people who are far from you through social media.
- Subscribe to sports clubs and practice your favourite hobbies.
- Try to join group volunteering.
- Remove from your mind all the negative thoughts that haunt you.
- Maintain regular sleep hours, stick to a healthy diet, and practice your favourite sport.
- Stop believing that others are better than you, because how people see you depends on your view of yourself. Be confident of yourself and make sure in your self-decision that you are a social person.
- Stop criticizing your actions and integrate with others without analysing and criticizing your actions.
- Stop believing that you are being watched, because people are the worst critic of themselves and others have something that preoccupies them more than criticizing your actions. This does not mean that you are not important, but you are not being watched, and others do not seek to observe you and criticize you.
- Train on openness, like anything else, you need training to get rid of fear and shyness, by forcing yourself to deal with others, such as spending your free time with someone close to your family or friends.
- And on you. By accepting invitations to others to attend parties or social events and avoiding giving unreal reasons to avoid fulfilling the claim and not attending the event.
- The misconception that people are really evil there are many bad, vicious people, but there are a lot of friendly, kind and cooperative people. Changing this belief will help you in the desire to get to know others and integrate with them.
- Be sure to be optimistic and positive. Even if you are in a bad mood, you only narrate positive aspects to people, people like to stay and interact with people who are happy and optimistic.
- If you want others to care about you, you should pay attention to them and their conversation, so the behaviour of looking at your phone while you are talking to someone does not indicate interest in that person at all.
- Master the body language. If you want others to approach you, do not stand in the corner of the place alone and fold your arms, but rather you should smile to others and direct eye contact to appear a friendly and open person, as you will be more attractive when you smile.
- You should take the initiative to talk with others and get to know them, do not wait for people to come to you to get to know you.
- You have to accept the differences between people, it is not necessary for people to have the same beliefs and behaviours as your friends.
