How do you break out of the cycle of isolation?

Postby thatright » Thu Jun 21, 2012 5:58 pm

I have read someone who is stuck in the cycle of isolation may find it hard to break free. I have some questions please?

1. How do you break out when you have no emotional support from family?

2. How do you break free when you have no motivation?

3. Do you ever wish someone would rescue you from this cycle?

4. How do you break free?

Opinions or experience please.

I'm sorry you're feeling so lonely.

Sometimes people create for themselves self fulfilling prophecies. You WANT to break out of this, so this is half the battle.

Changing the way you think changes the way you act. You need to change negative thought patterns. If they're there because of depression, the first step would be to speak to a doctor for help, and also a therapist. Therapy can also help you to challenge negative self talk and help your self esteem. It would also help you to discuss your feelings about your family, who show no support.

Doing a small thing every day that involves reaching out to people can help. No one can rescue you from this cycle, but you can reclaim your power and rescue yourself. Therapy could be an important first step.

Breaking free is difficult, wanting to is the first step I believe.

Personally, I would do small things. Like walk to this cafe once a week and have coffee, and come home. I started feeling a bit confident, because they started to expect me to come in and knew my order. I stayed like that for about 3 months, and it really did help to have somewhere you can feel confident and think 'I know this place, I can feel comfortable here'.
