Changes in male sexual organs by age

. When testosterone in the body begins to decline, it took longer for old men to achieve sexual arousal. Although already aroused, it took him longer to get an erection and achieve orgasm. After orgasm, she also needs a longer effort to be aroused and orgasm again.
According to experts, the age factor was also influential in determining the volume of semen and sperm quality in a man. Impotence or erectile dysfunction is also associated with older age, ie, can occur at ages 40 to 70. One study showed, the Adam's masculinity can be decreased 60 to 30 percent.
Another bad news, the men also would naturally decline in urinary function. Research shows that the flow of urine to fizzle out, which is a consequence of the weakening of the muscles of the bladder and prostate enlargement.
And, that alone is not enough. But new research suggests that the size and shape of the penis will experience significant changes when a man started to move from the height of her sexuality (the 30s) to middle age and old age. Here are four changes that occur naturally on the penis men with age:
1. Appearance
According to Irwin Goldstein, MD, director of sexual medicine at Alvarado Hospital in San Diego who is also Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Sexual Medicine, there are two major changes will happen to Mr P. Head of the penis (glans) regularly will lose it purple color, which is a sign from reduced blood flow. In addition, there will be loss of pubic hair slowly.
2. Penis size
Weight gain is commonplace when he grew older. When fat collects in the lower abdomen, the appearance of the penis size will be changed. "Piled up a lot of fat on the prepubis make the penis look shorter shaft," said Ira Sharlip, MD, professor of clinical urology at the University of California, San Francisco.
"In some cases, fat deposits in the abdomen makes the hidden penis. One way to motivate patients with obesity is by telling them that the size of the penis can grow again up to one inch with a simple, namely to cut weight," said Ronald Tamler, MD, PhD, Co-Director of Men's Health Program at Mount Sinai Hospital, New York City.
In addition to shrinkage of the side view (its reversible), the penis is also likely to experience shrinkage of the size of the actual (irreversible). Depreciation is-both in terms of thickness-length or will not happen dramatically, but it looks real. "If a man measuring 6 inches when erect when at the age of 30, may be changed to 5 or 5.5 inches when she turned 60 or 70's," said Goldstein.
What makes the penis shrink? There are two things that become the cause. The first is due to the deposition of fatty substances (plaque) in the penile blood vessels, which affects blood flow to vital organs. This process is called atherosclerosis, a similar mechanism that causes blockages in the coronary blood vessels that trigger heart attacks.
The second reason is the accumulation of inelastic collagen (scar tissue) slowly in the fibrous sheath that lines the chambers erection (erection chambers). Own erection occurs type these chambers are full of blood flow. Blockage in the penile arteries and the more-is-no elastic chamber will make getting an erection was not optimal.
Just like penis size is changed, the testes are also experiencing the same thing."Starting at around age 40, the testes will begin to shrink," says Goldstein. Testes 30-year-old man may have a diameter of about 3 cm, while men aged 60 and probably only about 2 cm.
3. Curve
If the accumulated scar tissue in the penis are not evenly distributed, turned out to be a curved penis. This condition is known as Peyronie disease, which often among men in middle age. This disorder can cause very painful erection and make intercourse difficult. To overcome these problems, surgery is usually required.
4. Sensitivity
Some research indicates that the penis over time will become less sensitive. This will make a man achieve an erection or orgasm. However, whether this will also reduce the pleasure in sexual intercourse would still debated.
Not an obstacle in enjoying sex
If indeed all these things experienced by you, the experts argue decline in function or shape changes in vital organs do not have to make your sex life to be disturbed.
A recent study involving 2213 men in Olmstead County, Minnesotta, showed that the respondents experienced a decrease in erectile function, libido, and ejaculatory function. However, in terms of sexual satisfaction, its reduction is not too dominant alias is still moderate.
"The most important thing in achieving a satisfying sex life is the ability to satisfy your partner, and it does not require the level of peak sexual performance or penis that big," said Goldstein.

Why Should Women Mature Faster?

Compared with men, women are rapidly mature. Women are more easily manage their psychological well-being than men after adolescence.
Researchers from the Department of Psychology University of Alberta, Canada Nancy Galambos trying to learn how teens ages 18 to 25 years to make the transition from juvenile to adult.
According to the study said women have higher rates for symptoms of depression and low self-esteem than men their age.
Adolescent development is a transitional stage between childhood with an adult in full.With increasing time, biologically they been changed into an adult. But emotionally may not be fully mature.
Other results indicate, although they have become adults and are confronted with the diversity of life choices, women are seen more easily reconciled with themselves when the age of 20.
Another study published in the Journal of Developmental Psychology added that the ability to organize woman's psychological inner makes women more receptive to gender equality which usually flare up in adolescence.
When teenage boys more discriminating which one is worth it man, and which deserve only done by women.
"The fact that young women mature faster than young men are already often we hear,but this research is the surprises that could complement the existing story," said Galambos.

Oh That I Might Learn...

Oh, that I might learn to be this humble, this open to truth, this wise, and this bold to share it.

I pray that you will share this video with others as I am brought to tears by the truth of his words. I seriously am weeping as I watch it. Praise God.

This is a reflection of my heart, but as I stumble and fail to present the message as well, I ask for your continued grace. I desire nothing more than to elevate Christ through my words and promise to seek Him daily through study and prayer that I might might serve you with a pure and humble heart.

None of this is about me, them, or you... but about something greater than any of us.

You are loved by an almighty God,

You Can't Have Her!

Guest contributor, Lisa McKay of The Preacher's Wife

I have a confession to make: I am a Lord of the Rings nerd. I counted today and in the land of Girlfriendom - after I considered every woman I know - I have exactly zero friends who share my affinity for all things Middle Earth. My love for this magical land leads me to hope, but never dare pray, that Heaven will be something like the Elven city of Rivendell. My perfect eternity consists of worshiping throughout the ages on regal white horseback like the elf princess, Arwen. Okay, maybe I shouldn’t have told you that. But now you are convinced of the nerd part, yes?

Even if you do not share my love for this mythical place, you simply must force yourself to watch these films and ask God to reveal all of the spiritual imagery. One such scene has captured my heart this week as I’ve been preparing a series of lessons for a women’s retreat.

In the trilogy, there is a niece to the King of Rohan named Eowyn. She is described as fearless, high-hearted (love that word), and skilled with a sword but is forbidden to participate in warfare because she is a woman. A great battle is looming and, determined to defend mankind, she disguises herself in armour and rides into the fight.

In the climax of the battle, Eowyn’s uncle, Good King Theoden, is struck down by the Evil Witch King and is about to be devoured by the flying beast he rides.

Just in time, Eowyn takes her stand between Good and Evil and proclaims, “You can not have him!”

Evil boastfully replies, “No man can kill me.”

As she reveals her womanly identity Eowyn surprises Evil by exclaiming, “I am no man!” She strikes the Witch King and destroys him… something no man in the entire army could have done. If she had stayed locked away in the city, no doubt the outcome would have been much different. I get the Girl-Power Goosebumps every time I think about it! (Be rest assured I am no feminist, but that is for another post.)

Listen to Jesus say:

I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish;
no one can snatch them out of my hand.
My Father, who has given them to me,
is greater than all; no on can snatch them out
of My Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.
~ John 10:28-30

Hear Christ Jesus say to Satan today, “You can not have her!”

Oh that we would wrap our minds around that thought! That we could let the truth sink marrow deep that we are sealed and protected by Christ’s own blood and nothing, no person, no situation can take those who believe on His Name from His hand. He stands between you and the evil one.

“Over my dead body,” Jesus says.

But wait. Satan tried that too – only the grave could not hold Him who holds the keys to death and destruction.

In our relationships, we are called to stand in that place of protection for our wounded sisters. Even now, God is growing in me a supernatural love for both women I know and those I’ve never met.

I desire more than anything to stand, with the Lord at my side, between you and Satan and proclaim, “You can’t have her! I know what she has been through. I’ve done this one before. Get up sweetheart, we are going home.”

Satan may laugh. However, just like Eowyn, you or I may be the only one suited to turn that smurk into a howl of defeat when he realizes we were just the ones pre-designed to win this battle. God knows what it will take to disarm Satan and when our lifesong will be most fitting to minister in a specific circumstance.

All He asks of us is our ‘yes.’ One thing is certain, if we stay safe behind the walls we may remain unscathed, but the warfare will continue and many will be left stranded on the battlefield.

What does standing for woman-kind look like practically?
  • You have a co-worker who is going through a rocky time in marriage. You've been there and the Lord restored your relationship. Will you be willing to involve yourself enough to share the source of your healing?

  • A young mother at church has suffered a miscarriage. You remember the pain of your own quite well. Will you send her a note to tell of your own experience so she'll know her grief is understood and justified?

  • Your daughter is not born again. She has continuously let you know the subject is off limits. Will you rise up against Satan and proclaim, "You can not have her!" Will you continue exploring creative ways of sharing the Gospel at all costs?
Praise God, we know the One who wins the war, but there remain many battles to be fought between now and then. Will you join me in holy indignation against the enemy on behalf of the sisterhood? This army comes in the name of the Living God and our Father is greater than all.

Satan - Beware!

Benefits of Play for Children

- The kids would love to play. They enjoy play time so that they often forget to eat, forget to learn are not even willing to do other activities if they’re playing. Parents often have to pull higher tension in advance to stop playing and do the homework or learning. This often causes the parents assume that their children are lazy to learn and just want to play. In this article will discuss why playing is considered important by some development experts and to the extent where the play is beneficial for the development of children.

According to Papalia, an expert on human development in his book Human Development, child develops a way to play. The world is the world's children play. With the play of children using body muscles, stimulate the senses of his body, exploring the surrounding world, discover what kind of environment that he lived in and discover what kind themselves. By playing, children discover and learn things or new skills and learn when to use such skills, as well as satisfy what is the need. Through play, children will be trained physical, cognitive ability and the ability to interact with others will flourish.

Playing is of course different things to learn and work. According to Hughes (1999), an expert in child development, said there should be 5 (five) elements in an activity called play. The five elements are

  • The purpose of playing is the game itself and the perpetrators get satisfaction by doing so (without target), not for example get the money.
  • Selected freely. Selected game itself, carried out on their own will and no one ordered or forced.
  • Fun and enjoyment.
  • There imagination element in its activities.
  • Conducted actively and consciously.

Outside the opinion of Hughes, there are experts who define play as any activity that is felt by her children fun and enjoyable (pleasurable and enjoyable). Playing to use the tools (toys) or not. Just running around in the room, if the activity is felt by the child's fun, then the activity can already called a play that too.

Based on above it is important to provide a sufficient time for children to play, parents may think the things mentioned above can be found children with learning (study). There should be pointed to the play time as learning time, learn during playing. In fact, the smart child can learn himself, but some if just left to play without guidance they should not easy to learn. These opinions have a point, especially if intelligence is only related to academic skills such as reading, writing and arithmetic. But in everyday life, intelligence is not just reading, writing and arithmetic, as well as academic ability is not the only thing that is important and needed. There are other things that are important and necessary, such as the ability to communicate, understand the perspective of others and negotiate with people. These things can not be obtained only by learning. Feeling happy, enjoying, free to choose and free from all charges because they do not have a target, also cannot be obtained from the learning activities.

When playing, children spend their imagination and ideas that are stored within him. Children express knowledge that he possesses about the world and then also at the same time can gain new knowledge, and all done by encouraging him. Not only knowledge of the world have in mind is expressed through the child's play, but also things that he feels, fears and joy. Parents will be able to getting to know children by watching their children while playing. Even the passing game (especially hide and seek or ole-playing) parents can also find the impressions and expectations of children against their parents and family. Playing pretend to describe his understanding of the world where it is located.

Creativity of children is also growing through the game, because original ideas that came out of the minds of children, although sometimes feels abstract for parents. Not only parents will get stressed, children are too. Stress in children can be caused by the burden of school lessons and daily bored routines. Play can help children to escape from the stress of everyday life.

What Should Parents Do? Of course the obvious answer is that children need to play. Perhaps the parents are worried that too many children to play and did not want to learn. Back to the initial illustration, which need to be ascertained is whether children still have time to play, after an intensive learning activities. If it is true that children have time to play, then goes on to not want to learn, then the problem is how we motivate children to learn.

Some things should be done by parents to guide children in play so it was really useful for these children, are as follows:

  • Make sure the kids busy schedule every day, there are still enough free time for children to play.
  • Every now and then come into play with the children, understand themselves, joys, fears and needs. Who knows after that is no longer a parent that is too ambitious.
  • Supports creativity game of children, as far as what is done to children in the game is not a brazen act, no harm, and not endangers themselves and others.
  • Guiding and supervising the children in play, but not over-protective. Children may not know if what he did in the game is doing is wrong; therefore they need to be guided. But do not be over-protective to inhibit freedom. For example, if children play running and has been dropped is fair, so no need to forbid children to play running for fear of children falling. But if a child when playing a bicycle race, of course, need to be banned because of dangerous.

Even if the world is the world playing of children, but children need parental role to be in a world that is safe and comfortable. With a play, not only the children feel excited and happy when it did; but with proper guidance from parents, potential child can also develop, children can become smart by means of game. Children love and parents happy.

Her Noble Character

Introducing guest contributor, Olivia from Her Noble Character

An Excellent Wife
The other day I spent some time in Proverbs 31:10-31, a very popular passage about “an excellent wife.” Sometimes, I admit, I treat the familiarity of those verses as a license to read through them quickly and not very productively. Rather than actually focusing on them as inspired words of God to be carefully studied and applied, I sometimes move on from them simply with positive feelings about becoming a homemaker someday, or even about preparing now. But thankfully God cares quite a bit about maturing me and makes sure to direct my eyes and heart, as I read the Bible, to specific things I should pay attention to.

I read about the rare value and specific tasks of this woman in Proverbs 31, and how the home was the center of her activity and influence. It wasn’t that she never left, but that she was intentional as she went out, apparently always seeking the improvement of her family. I saw that her husband was a well-respected man and, based on the context of this passage, I think it’s likely she had something to do with that. She had very honorable character herself - marked by peace, kindness, wisdom, and diligence. Because of all this, she was appreciated by her husband, her children, and everyone around her.

The Reason
This time as I read these verses, I was drawn to the reason behind her ways. It looks like this woman is, in part, summed up with a statement about her motivation for this lifestyle - she fears the Lord.

It’s not that she can sometimes be found doing her job as a homemaker and other times be found worshiping the Lord. Living our God’s design for a wife is an act of worship to Him! And this isn’t the only place we might make that conclusion. Titus 2:4-5 and 1 Timothy 5:14 both tie the home-oriented activity of a wife with the honor of God’s Word and her faithfulness to Him. As we grow in our reverence for the Lord, we will become more purposeful about living by His design, even in the “little things” like working hard at preparing food. I also think it’s neat how Proverbs 31:13 says that this woman “works with her hands in delight.” She’s glad about what she does. And that’s the same word used in Psalm 1, in speaking of one whose “delight is in the law of the Lord.” If this woman fears God, she’ll be serious about following His instructions - and she’ll take pleasure in doing it. What a wonderful thing that our God acts toward us with love when He directs us by His Word!

Preparing for Marriage
I am reminded that all I’m doing to get ready for marriage to Jonathan is not a separate thing from preparing for marriage to Jesus Christ. If I fear the Lord, I will obey Him. Once I become a wife, then faithfulness to God - practically speaking - includes prioritizing my husband and and our home, among other things. And that requires some preparation. I need my heart prepared. I need my home prepared. I need wedding details prepared. The problem comes if I stop acknowledging this and lose sight of the fact that I want to be married, and have a wedding, for the glory of God. And that’s something I’ll always have to remember later as well. I’m sure marriage will be very fun, but there are even greater purposes in view than having fun. And yet it will be a delight to enjoy each one of God’s intentions for my marriage as He uses them to prepare me for full maturity in time for the ultimate wedding in Heaven. I encourage you to join me in directing your fear of the Lord to practical obedience in each of your roles as a Christian woman!

Discover The Gift of Solitude

Dear Darlene,

If I were to stay in our home with my man and my baby, I would be completely happy, but when I go out with my friends or go to our church, I feel so lost and like I don't have a friend in the world besides Jesus, my husband, and our child.

I guess I am at a stage in my life where there are a lot of changes and while I am trying to keep up, I’m not succeeding. There is obviously more to my story, but I'm sitting here crying as I type, and I finally feel like God is giving me a hope for something (though I don't even know what I've been looking for) to hang onto.

It may take me some time to read back through your blog posts, but I will try! I've signed up to receive them by email. I just felt I needed to share this with someone--you specifically. Thank you for sharing your heart and your views and your values.


Dear Hope,

I wanted to share your letter with my readers, because I suspect that a lot of women have felt the same way you do—I know that I have. Sometimes I feel like I'm all alone in this world. Even in a crowd I feel like people don't see me.

I wrote an article a while back called, A Moment with Him,” that I'd like to encourage you to read. It's about a day when I drove, and I cried, and I wiped tears away from my face. I was lonely, but in that moment of isolation I felt God’s gentle whisper as He said, “I want to spend this time with you.”

That’s when I realized this time that we see as abandonment from the world is often a gift that goes unnoticed, until life slows down and we have a chance to look back. Not a wound waiting to be healed. Not a space needing to be filled--a gift of time spent alone with our Lord.

Language has created the word “loneliness”
to express the pain of being alone.
And it has created the word “solitude”
to express the glory of being alone.
~ Paul Tillich
Perhaps that's what's happening to you. Could it be that God is allowing this trial for a purpose? Maybe it's so that you dedicate your time to being the best mom and wife you can be. Maybe it's so that you step deeper into a relationship with God. Or maybe He is emptying your life for something greater than either you or I could imagine...

I don’t know the mind of God, but I do know that our cups can't be filled until they are empty. Empty of all this world has to offer. Use this time of solitude to trust--enjoy your family and rejoice knowing that He has more for you than you could ever hope for yourself.

Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea,
I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee
with the right hand of my righteousness.
~ Isaiah 41:10

A reader has also directed me to this post on the same subject that is wonderfully written and comforting for those of us who are feeling alone: When You Feel Lonely

You are loved by an almighty God,

Emotional Cheating? Is It Cheating?

I have been asked if I feel as though emotional cheating is cheating on one's other half.....in my opinion--YES. Not only does it take away what you should be getting from your spouse, but it makes the other person feel the withdrawl...at least most of the time. In my situation, my spouse did not like to talk about things...we just kind of communicated daily without too much of that "bearing our inner soul" all the time, although, we DID discuss things from time to time, we had been together for a long time and at least I thought we knew each other pretty well.  I was wrong, because I began needing some of that sharing of souls through words and missed having it very much, but I never ever cheated. I spoke to my women friends to get feedback from things, but never went to other men about things because I didn't want to get caught up in the emotional side of things.I feel as though ONE  of his other women was someone who he felt he could communicate with because she spoke his language very well, and understood his customs better than I did. However, the other OTHER WOMAN did not, but she was "needy" so I am wondering if he got his needs met through both of them because I was a pretty darned independent woman...and they were not. I feel that if there is a problem in a marriage/relationship, that the couple should speak to each other about it before discussing it with others....that at least gives the two people involved a chance to try and work things out...unless, of course, it's a marriage counselor or pastor that is able to help sort out things without getting in the middle of things. Emotional cheating can really hurt both people involved, so before looking to another person of the opposite sex for what you need emotionally, try talking with your partner. It might help to save it.

How to Be Happy on the Bluest of Days

Are there days when things get under your skin and you say, “Why me?” Does it seem like the minute everything is going great, it all comes apart?"

Maybe it’s difficulty with your family or friends, perhaps it’s your husband’s attitude, or maybe it’s something as small as a traffic jam. Irritations whether big or small have a way of spoiling an otherwise beautiful day. Don’t they?

So how do we fix it? How can we make our world a better place so that we’ll be happy within it?

The answer is--we can’t and we shouldn't expect to.

There will be days where you wake up on the wrong side of the bed and wish you could crawl back in. There will be people who disappoint you so badly that all you’re left with are the shattered pieces of your heart. There will be pain, there will be loss, and there will be tears. But God in His wisdom is good.

Have you ever wondered why God cursed Adam and Eve in Genesis chapter three?

I will greatly multiply thy sorrow
and thy conception… cursed is the
ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt
thou eat of it all the days of thy life.
Thorns also and thistles shall it bring
forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the
herb of the field.
~ Genesis 3:16-19 (paraphrased)

We know that the curse is the result of man's sin. And why then are we, who are forgiven of sin, still living the curse?

Because the curse is a constant reminder that we are in desperate need of salvation. It was designed with a purpose--put there for our good—so that we might understand our need for a saviour.

We can’t change the world around us completely, but we can change the way we relate to it so that while we’re riding the waves, we keep an even keel.

All too often we have that reversed. We spend all of our energy focussed on changing our surroundings so that we’ll feel better, happier, content, and relaxed--when the reality is that this peace comes from within. No one can take that away, unless you give them that power. We develop that sense of inner peace when we trust in our saviour, the same way that the disciples learned to trust Him in the storm.

And there arose a great storm of wind,
and the waves beat into the ship,
so that it was now full. And he was
in the hinder part of the ship, asleep
on a pillow: and they awake him, and
say unto him, Master, carest thou not
that we perish? And he arose, and
rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea,
Peace, be still. And the wind ceased,
and there was a great calm.
~ Mark 4:37-39

The Agony Of Breaking Apart

Oh ! the agony of people splitting up, jealousy and rage! Someone close to me, which has to remain nameless, is going through all of this agony. He and his wife were only together for three years. Things were fine, up until the time that she decided to start snooping into his past. Why? Why all of a sudden, does the past make a difference? To me, the past is gone. There was nothing for her to find. He had already told her of his past. She accepted him and married him. So, why did the legal paperwork make a difference? Why would anyone feel the need to snoop just for the sake of snooping? At some point, did she NOT feel secure? As sad as this all is, I happen to know both parties involved very well. He gave her NO reason to snoop. He felt violated, but got past it, until it happened over and over again, and not only that, she started fighting with him over things long gone. They eventually broke up because she was so jealous over his past, that she couldn't stop arguing over things. Why the mistrust?  Again, a mystery. They had spent nearly 24/7 together because he worked from home and she didn't work at all...I mean, she didn't even keep her house up.  He did it all, supported her and what became of this?  Maybe they should have spent more time together before getting married?  Who knows, but it seems to be happening all the time these days...you hear it on the radio, you see it reported on the news...people breaking apart. What happened to the good ole days of staying together?  All I can say, is thank goodness there were no kids in the marriage.

The Indigo Child

The Indigo Child - Most of us know that a small portion of children born as indigo. But, is it true that there are indigo and since when this phenomenon began in mind?
These children are called indigo children because they are considered to have indigo colored aura. The term indigo children come from a book by Nancy Ann Tappe in 1982, the Understanding Your Life Through Color. Another book, The Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived, written by Carroll and Tober pad, which was published in 1998 mentions, estimated at 60% of people aged 14 to 25 and 97% of children under 10 are "indigo."
In addition to indigo, they are many other terms for these children with more capabilities, such as Star Kids (because they are claiming to be from another world), Crystalline Children (because some people say they are highly developed), and so forth. None of these claims may survive because of this phenomenon was not studied in an objective research through scientific observation.
According to the College of Metaphysical Studies, many of them are known by a variety such as Indigo Children, Children of the Blue Ray, Rainbow Children, Star Children, Millennium Children, the Crystalline Children. Whatever the name, of whom we hear amazing stories and even surprising.
However, Bryn Mawr College revealed that one very well known characteristics of indigo children, that have hypersensitivity. According to New Age beliefs, these children have a very high level of empathy, and are naturally drawn to matters concerning mysteries, spirituality, paranormal, and occult.
These children are considered to represent a higher state of human evolution, some believe that they have paranormal abilities such. While that distinguish indigo child with others in terms of conventional is that increased empathy and creativity high.
Critics of the indigo phenomenon is quite simple. Critics, such as psychologist Russell Barkley, said that the New Age movement that said motion the emergence of indigo in large quantities has not produced empirical evidence of the presence of indigo children. The characteristics that they use to describe them were only seen vague and unclear.
Another criticism is that these children are in tune with the paranormal. Perhaps, they get this result of watching television with an emphasis on magic, magic, and divination. They may be responding to what they see on television.
Educational programs for children indigo has been described by the College of Metaphysical Studies, begins with a stop labeling indigo in certain children. Many people have tried to provide labels on children as indigo children and proud of it. In fact, labeling will make them enter into the box that can limit creativity and ability to achieve the greatest potential.

Wonderful of Loneliness

Wonderful of Loneliness - Every person in his life would never feel lonely. What makes the difference is the levels, duration, cause and of course handling. Most people avoid loneliness of lonely negative connotation, or at least does not cause an unpleasant feeling.
Today, almost everybody are on facebook and twitter, to stay connected with other, to be able to know what is being done his or her community. Fuel, YM, instant messenger becomes a means of connecting does not know the weather, time (working time, family time or time to pray, even - even sleep time). Indeed, not everyone had - a twitter account and facebook and do an online chat are lonely people. The premise is not the case. But in fact, almost everyone seems to want to say hello and addressed, comments and commented upon; want to be part of the community. Mall, cafes and restaurants more crowded than for filling the stomach, but as an opportunity for networking, and connecting a sense of reunion. The desire to keep in touch need not be forever.
Actually there is nothing wrong with this, but the problem is, there are many people who still feel lonely in hangout, in a crowd or in the high frequency of communications traffic via online chat. Loneliness is experienced by people living on the mountaintop or remote villages, because those who live in big cities are densely populated and frenetic entertainment that also appeared to feel more lonely.
Feelings of Loneliness
According to the Wikipedia definition, "Loneliness is an unpleasant feeling in the which a person experiences a strong sense of emptiness and Solitude resulting from inadequate levels of social relationships. However, it is a subjective experience. Also Loneliness has been described as social pain - a psychological mechanism meant to alert an individual of undesired isolation and MOTIVATE her / uterus to seek social connections.
Feelings of loneliness are often in correlation in the absence of friends and lack of affection. According to James Park, a wing existentialist philosopher said that feelings of loneliness is not always caused by a lack of love and friends, but because it is often misunderstood and not understood, then any kind of lonely and then overcome by socialization, courtship, marriage, etc are all related to the interpersonal relationship . For more details, below is a brief description of the causes of loneliness that turned out not only in love affairs.
Causes of Loneliness
Children, adolescents, young people to seniors, have experienced a sense of loneliness. The children feel lonely when their parents abandoned. Wife / husband is lonely because the loss of a spouse, due to death or separation. A girl or boy lonely after breaking up from a boyfriend. Mothers who are lonely because their children live outside the city. Or someone who is sick should stay at home or in hospital, isolated from friends and family. Moving house or changing schools can also lead to loneliness because uprooted from their communities and have to face the new community.
Loneliness is caused by social change or any change in external conditions are said to be temporary and relatively easy to overcome. Meanwhile there are other types of loneliness mentioned above, namely feeling lonely in a crowd, was at a party, was hanging out with friends, was in the middle of the family. So in any situation and scope, the feeling of loneliness is still there. This is what existential Loneliness.Someone who is experiencing an existential Loneliness, do not care as much and as high as the frequency of any outing, dating and chat her, will still feel lonely. According to an article from the Associate Press, "quantity of contact does not translate into quality of contact".
Existential Loneliness
Existential Loneliness often becomes something that is chronic because it already happened a long time without realizing it or is deliberately ignored. That is, the feeling of loneliness is recognized but not acted upon because they think the feeling is caused by environmental factors.
Chronic loneliness that this caused a sad feeling of emptiness, so many who can not stand and suffered depression. Emptiness that comes from the soul is due to various reasons, could be for life without direction and purpose, so that from day to day like a robot, just follow the rhythm of routine. There have not found the meaning, because life is very limited, not poor - but too sterile, flat, flat for being too afraid to take risks, so do not dare to navigate the opportunities and possibilities. There is also an empty feeling, because it does not find a good and positive things from him, so do not know what the point she was born, what good is this life and what good is it for others.
There are trying to eliminate the loneliness, emptiness and void by hanging out as much and as often as possible. Some are looking for love, because he thought, love someone soul will complete emptiness. As Tom Cruise said in the movie Jerry McGuire, who said "you complete me." The philosophical and psychological, mental emptiness can not be overcome by growing love / import love from the outside, and this is according to the philosophers is an act of illusion that "disconnected". Then, replace the pair, looking for new love that is considered and is expected to overcome the emptiness - is the act impossible. Because the solution is not able to patch the emptiness from the outside. That growth must come from within.
The impact of loneliness
Feelings of loneliness if prolonged can lead to various problems continued. Problems of social adaptation, it is difficult make friends, likes to be alone even academic barriers that make his achievement is far from optimal, is a lonely feeling the impact of long-experienced by children. In fact, according to Marano, lonely children because of social rejection, ignored and excluded from the social environment (or family), is one of the causes of dropping out of school, because in their daily life, they tend to exhibit aggressive behavior, and what is termed as a juvenile, as well as form other antisocial behavior. Among adults, loneliness is said to cause depression and addiction, be it addiction to the relationship (co-dependent), sex, shopping (shopaholic), work (workaholic), alcohol / liquor, or drugs (substant abuse).
Medically also shows the impact of loneliness on health. John Cacioppo of the University of Chicago examined the impact of this loneliness and surprisingly found that:
* People who are lonely have reported higher stress levels, even when relaxed compared with those who are not lonely.
* Loneliness increases circulating stress hormones and increase blood pressure.His influence on the circulatory system of the heart work harder and face the potential damage caused by an unstable pressure.
Loneliness disrupt sleep quality and effectiveness so that hamper the physical and psychological restoration process that the body needs. People who experience loneliness more often awakened at night and slept less than those who are not lonely.
Wonderful to be lonely
Loneliness is not always bad. Existential loneliness, the loneliness that interpersonal problems are not caused alarm from a situation that should be on the face or resolved.
A person enters the state of Loneliness Pls Some Compelling, essential aspect of life is challenged Suddenly, realized, threatened, altered, or denied, the individual is confronted with the awareness of choice and the possibility of meaning or its lack.Positively When embraced and confronted, Loneliness has a salutary role: the integration and deepening of self. Through Loneliness, the individual "discovers life, WHO he is, what he really wants, the meaning of his existence, and the true nature of his relations with others.

Thus, feelings of loneliness experienced need in question. Not everything can be cured by way of socializing or even find new love. Feelings of loneliness can be a sign that there is an urgent need that we must address in yourself, whether it be to resolve the pending issues, responding to the challenges of life, must develop your own potential, to make decisions about the future and live it boldly, or to leave the lifestyle during This is not productive, and so on. In essence, the feeling of loneliness is the beginning of growth. Thus, it is wrong if people try to avoid loneliness because of the quiet is that we can meet with yourself and honest dialogue to discover what is best and we must do now and in the future. The next issue is, how to run what was supposed to and it's time for us to perform. The more delayed, the farther we are from a trip to find themselves and grow a personality to suit our purpose and calling in life.
