Fear of being alone is linked to a fear of not being able to create your own
If you do not believe that you can create your own happiness and enjoy life alone, then you will
be less confident and more dependent on others’ creating your happiness. This dependence
makes being in a relationship much more important, and therefore increases anxiety about
being alone and increases fears of rejection. As a result, you can come across as needy,
manipulative, and scare potential partners away.
There will be times in everyone’s life when we will experience being alone.
The thought of being all alone in the world is not in itself something to be scared of. While some
people panic at the thought, other people get excited about the idea. If you believe that you can
take care of your own needs and be happy even if you are alone, then being alone is nothing to
be scared of.
