For reflection/discussion: What are some of the harmful or self-destructive choices people make in an effort to deal with loneliness? Why do we refuse to ask for help, refuse to forgive, pursue unhealthy relationships, or look for ways to escape when we feel alone? In what ways, if any, do these things help us? In what ways do they hurt us and others? Are there any unhealthy or self-destructive actions, attitudes, or habits that you use to address loneliness in your life?
