Five myths about loneliness(2)


 其实你并不孤独!关于孤独的五个错误看法


3-Loneliness is always bad-寂寞总是不好


 Loneliness hurts.But the good news is that it’s often temporary–and shouldn’t be seen as entirely negative.Instead,it can be the signal to us to look for new friends or to find a way of improving our existing relationships.


 寂寞是痛苦的。但好消息是,这往往是暂时的-不应该被视为完全消极。相反,这可能是我们寻找新朋友或寻找改善现有关系的方式的信号。


4-Loneliness leads to ill health-孤独会导致健康不佳


 It is possible that unhappily isolated people are more likely to become ill.But it could also happen the other way around.People could become isolated and lonely because they already have poor health,which stops them from socialising.


 不幸的孤独者可能更容易生病。但它也可能以相反的方式发生。因为身体已经不好,阻止了他们的社交,人们因而可能变得孤立和孤独。


5-Most older people are lonely-大多数老年人都很孤单


 Loneliness is more common in old age than in other adults,but in her review of loneliness across the lifespan Pamela Qualter from the University of Manchester found there is also a peak in adolescence.Meanwhile,studies show that 50-60%of older people are not often lonely.


 孤独在老年人中比其他成年人更常见,但在对生命期间的孤独感的研究中,来自曼彻斯特大学的帕梅拉·卡特尔发现,青少年时期也是一个高峰。同时,研究表明,50-60%的老年人不经常感到孤独。
