Isolation is more than just spending time alone. It is more about spending more time alone than you want to, and feeling alone, lonely,  and uncared for, even leading to feeling sorry for ones` self. It is about being out of balance emotionally and spiritually. If you feel these feelings often, there are many things that can be helpful. Some of these include taking a class, starting back to church or joining a study group, getting a pet, exercising with a neighbor or friend, reaching out to family and friends with offers of help or invitations, and thinking more positively about yourself. Doing some of these things may help you feel less isolated from God, your own feelings, and your family and friends.
