It makes me sad and disappointed at many users of this community because many of the responses that you received are careless thoughts. You deserve better.
First, I want you to understand that everyone in the world feels lonely at times. We like to try to have control of our lives. We like to think that we have control of our lives. But we all know that we are NOT in control of our lives. Those people who say they have control, are lying.
It is okay to feel lonely, and I am confident that things will get better. For now, I recommend you to do these things -
1.) Accept your loneliness - When people become lonely, they try to distract themselves from it by pursuing temporary pleasure such as watching TV, eating, sleeping, etc. This won't fix your problem. It just delays it.
Some people like to criticize themselves. They feel bad for themselves and they hate themselves. Please do not think this way. You have autism. So what? You are a living, breathing human being. The probability of you existing in the universe is less than 1%. Be thankful. Accept the fact that you feel lonely.
2.) Compassion - Practice the habit of reminding yourself that there are many other people who feel lonely. You are NOT alone. There are thousands, actually millions of people feeling lonely at this moment. People who lost their loved ones, people who feel isolated, people who feel like they just are not good enough.
3.) Awareness - Be realistic and aware of how your body is feeling both physically and mentally. Does it feel like your throat is tight? Does your body feel heavy? When you feel sad, don't hold your tears. Allow yourself to cry. Listen to sad songs. Studies show that doing these things will benefit you and help you recover faster. Make sure to take care of yourself. Get 9 hours of sleep each day. Eat a healthy breakfast each morning. Drink enough water. Go to the gym. Being able to take care of yourself well will not only make you feel satisfied, but will attract others in the process.
4.) Last but not least - Try not to get bored. We do unreasonable and dangerous things when we get bored. Stay busy. Volunteer at your local library or hospital and meet new people. Read self help books. Feel free to message me on this site when you want to.
