We are saddened to know that you, or someone close to you, is hurt and lonely. There are so many reasons that any one of us could become hurt emotionally, hurt physically….hurt by someone or a group of people we know and trusted, or hurt because someone has left us or died.
Humans are strong and resilient in so many ways… and yet we can also be so fragile! When we can’t get over our hurt easily we sometimes slump into loneliness, making our situation all the harder to deal with…. especially without help. Sometimes even when the reason for the initial hurt has long gone we still have thoughts which affect how we feel about ourselves, and how we interact with others… sometimes without realising, we further our own loneliness.
Whatever your circumstance, we just want you to know that you’re not alone feeling like this… sadly there are many people like you who are hurt and lonely. Our aim is to help get you to better understand yourself, others and the world you are in – to help you move from the very low loneliness you are in to a space where you feel more able to connect well with yourself and other people.
We have written some pages on some aspects of being hurt and lonely, for you to possibly identify with or learn more from. We also appreciate that everyone’s situation is unique so if your cause of being hurt and experiencing loneliness is not on one of these pages, or elsewhere in our “I’m feeling lonely” section of the website, we are still here for you.
So please look through our pages… and be in touch if you would like to consider further help from us, as an individual. We are also willing to work with groups to help further their understanding of how to help conquer loneliness in New Zealand.
