Loneliness

Loneliness can be described as a continuous, recurring, and prolonged experience. It differs from the occasional feeling of loneliness that is familiar to everyone.

Everyone experiences loneliness at some point in their lives. It can be caused by life changes, such as moving, changes in work or studies, a breakup, or the loss of a loved one.

On the other hand, being alone refers to choosing to spend time by oneself. Living alone does not automatically mean experiencing loneliness.

Can loneliness be prevented?

The prevention of loneliness is often perceived as challenging. Frendie emphasizes highlighting the importance of loneliness prevention and the promotion of social well-being at a societal level. Everyday loneliness is all too often associated with shame, and this shame can lead to denying or downplaying loneliness. Frendie's societal mission is to eliminate the stigma surrounding loneliness.

Anyone can experience loneliness

False perceptions about loneliness include the idea that it always stems from inadequate social skills or is related to one's societal status. Anyone can experience loneliness.

In Finland, an average of 30 percent of people experience loneliness. It is even more prevalent among young adults and seniors. Hundreds of thousands of people in Finland experience loneliness.

The impact of loneliness on an individual

The experience of loneliness can be so central that it begins to comprehensively define the way a lonely individual exists, thinks about themselves, and relates to others. For someone experiencing loneliness, an identity as a lonely person may develop.

However, loneliness is just one emotion among many. It is not the same as the person themselves. (Source)

Solutions can also be found for loneliness. One scientifically proven solution that reduces loneliness and promotes social well-being in society is the Frendie Friend App.
