#061: Overcoming Loneliness [Podcast]

Today we talk about the subject of loneliness; what causes it, how we end up feeling that way and what to do about it. I believe you will love our honest and straight shooting regarding this subject.

From Dr. Colbert Article Can Loneliness Cause Early Death?

A recent research has shown that loneliness impacts health and causes early death as much as being poor does. The findings says that dying early has an increased probability of as much as 19%.

From Counseling and Wellness Center:

Loneliness is a feeling of emptiness or hollowness inside you. You feel isolated or separated from the world, cut off from those you would like to have contact with.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • The different ways loneliness can sneak into our lives.
  • How loneliness affected people in the Bible.
  • Methods people use to try and cope with loneliness.
  • Why are people lonely?
  • What are solutions to help us overcome loneliness?

You definitely don’t want to miss this one!
