4 Ways Traveling Can Help Heal the Lonesome Feeling In You

Do you sometimes feel sad and alone? Because of problems, worries, anxieties, people’s opinions and other things that trouble you?

There are times when you might feel like you have no one to talk to and nowhere to go to. Your thoughts of being alone bother you so much that you become gloomy and unproductive. Sometimes, you get sad without a clear reason but many things give you a heavy heart, and you think there’s no one you can count on and nothing you can do.

When such times come to you, keep in mind that you need to breathe and to take a pause from things that stress you out and make you feel down. Really, you need that. There’s a need for unwinding, loosening up and caring not about thoughts that worry you. To do that, some people eat a lot, sleep a lot and/or spend a lot of time shopping, playing games and watching movies to distract them from their lonesome feeling.

Many ways are there to make you forget the sadness you have for whatever reason and to eventually make you happy again. One of the most special of them is TRAVELING. That’s right, going to far places locally and even abroad is! You might think that it could be a bit costly, but surely, it can result wonderfully in relieving any sadness within you.

Below are 4 ways traveling can make you happy when you’re lonely:


There are times when the comfort zone becomes a sad place to be in for there is little or no progress that happens. It’s because it doesn’t let you explore and discover more beyond its boundaries. The opportunities and the people you’re supposed to learn from remain outside the area you love being in.

When you travel, you go out of your house bringing only the necessary things. You leave your comfort zone, and let yourself experience fresh things and meet fresh faces. It’s true that no man is an island, and a part of the beauty if traveling is that it lets you encounter new people.

Even inside the airplane, in the hotel, in the ship, in the bus, in a restaurant, while falling in line, you can unexpectedly meet kind souls. You can even meet new great friends, even those you can keep for a lifetime.

People you meet and become good friends with, they can make you feel more appreciated and happy. You can learn a lot from them about the places especially if they’re locals. The time you get to spend with people who are “strangers” can become a meaningful part of your travel and of your life.


The thought of doing things alone might be sad for you, but realize that it’s not. If you travel alone, ride the plane with people you don’t know, stay in the hotel alone, find your destinations alone, eventually, you’ll forget the sad feeling of feeling alone and see that there is actually something good in it.

You will see that there are also many travelers and other people who are with no one else but themselves. It’s nothing bad. Spending time with yourself is a precious way of loving yourself. And if you’re just wrongly thinking that you’re alone, you might even get your real self back and remember that there are people who has your back!


As mentioned earlier, sometimes, you just get sad without a big or clear reason. Sometimes, you are just very distressed and bothered. You need to travel and regain your peace of mind. Things and people that bother you can take away the peace you’re keeping within you. Travel can also help you heal.

Seeing the beauty of what’s outside your gloominess can put a peace that mends what’s broken within you and that bandages what’s hurting. Peace of mind is important and enough to remind you of the happiness you’ve somehow forgotten about. Travel, rest and relax.


The sadness you are feeling might be because of the feeling of being boxed inside the walls of your house or because of the thought that you are not going anywhere in life. That feeling can even worsen when you hide yourself inside your dim lit room and under your cold blankets while overthinking of things that scare you. What the eyes see affect the heart and the mind. Travel and change what you let your eyes witness.

The world has a beauty that shoots you right through your heart and makes you fall in love with it. You have to see it, and you won’t if you keep yourself grounded at home. Even if you don’t want to, the magnificence of the world will touch your heart and make you feel loved.

There is a certain warmth that the Almighty Creator embraces you with through the lovely blow of the wind and the astonishing sights of nature. The pleasant visuals of this created world will put a smile on your face, and you might not even notice that your frown has turned into a beautiful smile.


Traveling is beneficial in many different ways. If you are gloomy and if you feel alone, it could be a good way to heal and recover. If what causes your sadness are things, people and the environment you are surrounded with, realize how traveling can help you out big time. You might think that you’ll spend time, efforts and money for this, but so what? If it takes back the happiness that has left you, then it’s worth more than money.

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

To be or not to be, to go all in or to unwind and relax, we question our dreams, running in constant chase of our quests to come true, we are the ones who never sleep. Dreamers we are called, the ones who passionately strive in the endeavours of the best they could ever be, here is a letter to me, a letter to you. In the stride of embracing the best you have ever been, nurture your soul before the onset of the abundance in you that lies unseen.

Too bold, too much for your age, you are doing too much, how often have you heard these notions been used to describe you? As we tirelessly strive to achieve the next goal we have in our mind, we are often told that we are being hard on ourselves, to enjoy life a little. Life in its entirety passes by us in its dynamic flair, and the existence we envisage holds unique individuality to each one of us. The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t

How To Remain Centered And Calm In Face Of Difficulty

My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It

Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.

My Rendezvous With Life

I sought the beauty of the light that was unseen,In the depths of my muse, I found my world within.Life in its flair, trudged me into the emblems of the dark,The dreams that perspired in the seed embraced their death,As it was time for a new quest to embark.

Quaint whispers that echoed in their gallant stance,The jeers that surmounted the uncertainty galloped in their dance.Silencing the wind, bestriding the fall,I plunged into the entirety of my endeavours that call

The Power of Understanding Your Love Language

Love is the purest emotion one feels towards themselves and another individual. While the expression of love can vary in its entirety from one person to another, the care we hold for the ones we love shares an undeniable impact on how we forge our perceptions of interpersonal relationships. The way we communicate our feelings to someone also says a lot about how we are wired, the method of conveying our affection to our beloved ones is called a love language. You may express affection to the one you love regularly, but do you take the time to ensure that you are communicating it in the way that the other person prefers? Even love can become lost in translation when two individuals speak different love languages.

The Beauty Of Gratitude In A World Full Of Cynicism

Ever acquainted with the phrase that the world that you exist in, the life that you embody dwells in the perception of the stance you hold for yourself. The beauty and the tragedy of life is that it is as beautiful as the optimistic lens of perception and as ugly as the pessimistic view of your being.

The strive of our endeavours and the constant effort to achieve the next massive milestone often drive us to the edges of insanity, to be in the consistent light of greatness we lose sight of the great strings of joy that bind our existence together. To be the best we have ever been we must be mindful of the best we are.

I Breathe In The Sauntering Air That Collapses My Being

I Breathe In The Sauntering Air That Collapses My Being

I breathe in the sauntering air that collapses my being,I breathe through the crevices of my existence unseen.Uncertainty in its yonder strikes in bolt on the scars that nobody sees,Redemption that loves, redemption that is free, find me in the depths of my poetry.

Tales of lust ridden in smeared touches that belie,Entreated with envy, the visions of victory lie.To be or not to be in a question that yet lies,For I yearn for a world where fond passion never dies.

Enclasped in the cage of the deemed duty,Bounded in her vows, she forgot she was a thing of beauty.In a realm we live, where amour in its truth fails to stand tall,She, tired of her existence, submerges herself into the beauty that her dreams enthrall.

Chaos in its uproar hails in its darkness
