Many of us experience loneliness, even when surrounded by other people. This sense of isolation can produce a feeling of disconnection, and even despair. Perhaps we don't know how to make friends and create intimacy, or perhaps we invest our hearts and energy in others, only to find ourselves alone when we need support.
Loneliness is dangerous. It can be as life-threatening as smoking, or a diet lacking in nutrition. This National Institute of Health study from 2010 indicates that loneliness can cause a hyper-vigilance around safety, and a difficulty trusting people.
"Loneliness is synonymous with perceived social isolation, not with objective social isolation. People can live relatively solitary lives and not feel lonely, and conversely, they can live an ostensibly rich social life and feel lonely nevertheless. Loneliness is defined as a distressing feeling that accompanies the perception that one’s social needs are not being met by the quantity or especially the quality of one’s social relationships."
Our beliefs affect who and how we are able to trust. And now more than ever, we need to surround ourselves with people we trust.
Yet, who is that exactly?
And how do we change our beliefs about loneliness and ourselves, so that we can build the kind of social connectedness that will lengthen and improve the quality of our lives?
Trust forms the foundation for co-creating activities, projects and community. Trust allows us fearlessly to share our authentic experience. Trust makes adventure and fun possible.

"One of the reasons people hold onto their defensive stories is that they don't trust themselves to hold boundaries without their story. The negative story holds the boundary and then we can take the action we need to take. If we have a more compassionate or big picture story, we might not then take care of ourselves and our needs. If we can build self-trust that we will hold a boundary anyway, then we can accept other people's stories as also true."
