The Three Factors of Loneliness | The Emotionally Sensitive Person

by Karyn Hall, PhD, at Psych Central

I simplified the wording of the actual three factors:

  1. Level of vulnerability to social disconnection.
  2. Ability to regulate the emotions associated with feeling isolated.
  3. Mental representations, expectations and reasoning of/about others.

My favourite paragraph:

Sometimes lonely people have difficulty because they view themselves as inadequate or unworthy. Shame about who you are will block making connections with others.

A capricorn horse. Creative dreamer, over thinker. bpd, insecure attachment and any other labels for deep and chronic wounds and other gifts of brilliance that propel intense and eclectic lives and make for good art. We are high needs and high return, all the way, all the way. Surrender, integration, repair, rebuild, connect, create, evolve. Deeply.
