"Loneliness is considered an epidemic. It can make people feel more affected by, and take loved ones' and coworkers' behaviors and opinions, more personally. Focusing on others' imagined thoughts about you can be a problem when it starts to replace your own internal guidance system. Especially if you: Tend to be hypercritical of yourself Hold higher standards for yourself than others, but often feel disappointed by them Regularly find yourself in unhealthy relationships Excel at "helping" others reach goals but feel lost when it comes to your own? Feel stuck, especially if you are single? Struggle with self-esteem? Anxiety? Acknowledgement of your successes?"
