Like other people, not all the wrestlers are happy in relationships, some are lonely because of their shy and humble, let yourself be naughty free and enlightened. But it’s not that easy to stop being shy and lonely. That’s why we’ll reveal some tricks and tips about overcoming loneliness for wrestlers (and pretty much everybody else).
Why are Professional Wrestlers Lonely and What to Do About It?
To regular people, the world of professional sport and entertainment can look like a perfect place. Sadly, the truth is much different. Being a professional wrestler doesn’t fix all the problems. Yes, they make good money and enjoy their fame. But a lot of professional wrestlers deal with loneliness and other problems regular people have.
Some of the reasons for loneliness among wrestlers are (we’ll explain each of them below the list):
- people don’t realize that they aren’t their characters – wrestlers are actors too. Their personas are usually different from what you get to see on WWE.
- the lack of time for themselves – professional wrestling is a hard job. They work long hours and train when they aren’t. That doesn’t leave a lot of time for socialization.
- it’s hard to tell if people want to be with them because of the fame or them as persons – every famous person deals with this, wrestlers aren’t any different. When you’re famous, you can never be sure about other people’s intentions.
Where can Wrestlers Find Partners?
Wrestlers can find partners on every step, but a lot of them are still lonely. That’s why some of them join dating sites to find partners. Online dating lets them meet people who aren’t into wrestling, so they feel like they can trust them more. That kind of dating is becoming more and more popular among professional athletes. When somebody doesn’t know they could buy the whole site, they can be sure they are interested in them, not their money.
Other than dating sites, wrestlers usually find partners in the world of professional wrestling. It’s easier to date somebody who understands how stressful their job is. In those relationships, nobody has any false expectations, that’s why they work. That’s similar to cops dating cops and doctors dating doctors. An average person would have trouble understanding their lifestyle and schedules.
Some Tips that Can Help Wrestlers to Deal with Loneliness?
Fighting loneliness might sound silly to somebody who’s socially active and in a happy relationship, but loneliness is a big problem in the modern world. Below you’ll find tips that’ll help to defeat that enemy.
Become More Socially Active
It might look like professional wrestlers are always surrounded by people, always happy and smiling. That’s true in some cases, but most wrestlers are just doing what they’re paid for while in front of cameras. When lights turn out, a lot of them stay alone. The simplest way to stop being lonely is to become more socially active. Wrestlers should use every chance to hang out with their old friends and meet new people.
Spend Less Time Alone
After training and working, wrestlers are tired and want some time just for themselves. That’s understandable, but being alone soon becomes normal, and that’s the problem. Lonely people should do their best to be more social. At first, that’ll be a trip out of the comfort zone, but soon being around people becomes normal.
Make a plan to fight the mental and emotional habits of loneliness
This one is similar to the previous tip. Making a plan is the first step toward change. After that comes – taking action. Wrestlers are used to following scripts and schedules, so following a plan to defeat loneliness shouldn’t be hard to follow. Become more socially active, meet new people, repeat. Seems easy. That’s because it is. They have to exit their comfort zone.
Consider Going to Therapy
Therapy is the last resort, but if a wrestler can’t deal with loneliness alone, there’s no shame in seeking professional help. Talking with somebody who devoted their life to learning how to help other people is a great solution. On therapy, wrestlers (and anybody else) can speak freely about their problems. More importantly, professionals point them toward solutions.
Remember Loneliness is Temporary
Nothing lasts forever. Time is the machine crushing everything. It doesn’t matter how deep loneliness sinks its teeth in wrestlers, it’s nothing compared to the mighty jaws of time. A combination of advice we’d listed above and time will defeat loneliness every time. That’s a fact. None of the wrestlers stays lonely forever. They go through hard times and eventually find happiness.
You see, wrestlers aren’t that much different than us, normal people. They can be lonely and sad. They can be insecure and have low self-esteem. But they can also face their problems and find happiness. Hope that advice from above will help on that mission.
