Lonely But Not Alone
Lonely But Not Alone
It seems that we all have a touch of loneliness, every now and then and especially after we have been so busy with the holidays. With all of the holiday bliss over it is now time to settle into our state of renewing our life for another year (if it is ours) and try to make our life more complete, again. In doing this we may find that with everyone gone...friends and family...we are a little bit lonely without all of the fuss around us.
As we settle back into our normal life, whatever that is, we may feel a bit lost, a bit forlorn as we contemplate what might be ahead. Sometimes we think of the what if. I think this is our normal state of beginning again. Once we have a week or two back to this normal, we forget it is a new year and we settle into our daily routine again and do not think much about it anymore. It doesn't mean that the Loneliness takes flight, but if we are to function properly we have to deal with our loneliness in a constructive manner. We have to find a place that is comfortable again, where we can deal with the feelings of isolation and solitude.
We all have a spirit within us and that spirit is connected to something and that is why I say; we may be Lonely But not Alone. Whatever you believe in; be it Jesus, or another form of spiritual guidance, you are not alone. There seems to be those who say they do not believe in anything at all, we are just here. I perfer not to think that and I have my reasons. You have yours. Nevertheless, I am about to tell you why I believe we are never alone.
Our inner being is a spirit, our Soul. Our Soul is connected to something, mine is connected to my belief in Jesus Christ. He reaches out to us in many ways that we do not even recognize. Just today I received a blessing that was guided by His faithfulness, it had to be Him because it could not have happened any other way. He works in the background, to save us from things we do not need perhaps, just as He is faithful to give us our daily bread and keep us from harm. If we were to study our daily walk in life, I think that we would be able to find that here and there where we have been saved from some terrible situation or something truly wonderful has been givien to us, through some devine nature...some call it Angels, some call it God and Jesus. It is common I think for all of us to need a physical connection, a friend, a companion; for some worse than others.
There are worse things than being Alone and being Lonely. Giving this some thought; most of us had rather be by ourself physically, than to be with someone who is really not with us or be in a situation in which we are struggling just to survive.
Often when people leave us, we feel deserted, we feel unworthy, it makes us feel inadequate. These are the times to reach within your being to your spirit and ask for a higher revelation, seek strength from your inner spirit to crawl out of your distress into a higher place. I know it is hard to do anything but crawl sometimes so notice I said, crawl. Do not allow another human to destroy your balance in life. It is not worth it, they are not worth it. You are a masterpiece, you are one of kind, you are beautiful, you are worth much more than you realize and someone, somewhere cares for you, totally and without reservations. Know that Loneliness is only temporary.
Quotes & Stuff
This quote by Orson Wells says it all: “We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone"
“It's so lonely when you don't even know yourself". Author unknown
“It would do the world good if every man would compel himself occasionally to be absolutely alone. Most of the world's progress has come out of such loneliness.” by: Bruce Barton.
Make your life the best it can be at your lowest state of loneliness and then you will know that when the loneliness goes away you be a shinning star. Never give up on yourself. Try to see yourself as Lonely But Not Alone. Remember that you were designed uniquely. Change your thoughts and change your life. You have qualities that maybe no one else has. You can drive loneliness out of your life and replace it with self satisfaction. Think of yourself as being too good....we know we are not better than others (our morals may be) but when we get to the state of loneliness that we are hurting, we must think thoughts that can bring us out of our stupor and back to life. Stop fighting for something that does not belong to you anyway, if you are.
You Are Not Alone
Lonely But Not Alone
Take a look at where you could be if you gave as much thought and time to improving your abilities that exist in your life over this feeling of loneliness. You have gifts within you that are lying dormant...make them come alive. Do something that makes you feel good. Easier said than done when loneliness is at it worst, I know. Here is the key; I think....No one can make you feel lonely and no one can make you happy. These are emotions we cultivate ourself. We must make the best of our stance in life...if you desire something or someone you do not have, only you can start the process of finding whatever or whomever it is. You are the one who knows what you need, but in doing this one must first take a long look at the consequencies of adding something or someone to your life that we are not acquainted with...
There is nothing more wonderful than to feel loved, truly loved. There is no love greater than a Mother's love for a child. There is nothing more gratifying than to be working in rewarding career that brings one contentment, fulfillment and prestige.
When it is all said and done though....in all of these wonderful states of being....we still may have times of loneliness because nothing stays the same...forever....and this is when we must remember to examine our inner spirit and know that we may be Lonely But Not Alone.
