Isolation means being apart from others, physically or emotionally, in a way that causes mental distress. It’s similar to loneliness (where you’re on your own and missing social contact), but there are differences. For example, isolation can cause a sense of being separated from others even when you’re not alone (social isolation).
The amount of socialization and support people need varies, so isolation isn’t always easy to predict. However, isolation can affect anyone, even people who prefer being alone most of the time. Some people feel distressed and isolated whenever they’re on their own, while others need time alone because they find social interactions draining.
People with isolation problems often have no social relationships and no one to offer them emotional support. This causes negative feelings like sadness, low self-esteem, and shame. Without help, isolated people can develop mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression.
One Alkaline Life, LLC’s mental health professionals help you overcome these conditions and show you how to connect with others and develop your social skills.
