I had a question regarding the feeling of loneliness, when we feel lonely at times, it naturally wants us to either interact with others, have companionship with another human, if this aspect is not met, it can start to make us feel low about things that aren't really material, or make us remember events or people in the past etc. When this energy arises (I'm calling loneliness an energy), how should we approach it? For example, when lust arises we're taught to meditate on Guru Ji through Naam simran or reciting Gurbani etc. Would the same thing apply to this energy as well? Or is this energy telling us something? Is it healthy to feel this at times? Should one just ignore it and carry on keeping the mind occupied in other aspects of life? Should one in general avoid trying to interact with people to temporarily fulfill the desire of the loneliness energy to mix with other humans, especially the opposite gender as it can lead to wrong intentions?

I'd appreciate any wisdom from anyone.

Thanks for your time. :)
