What is the difference between being alone and feeling lonely?

Updated on August 24, 2013

This is a question I ask myself very often, I am not physically alone; I have my wonderful son, I am not spiritually alone; I have my God. Yet even with these comforts I still often feel alone. I am a single mother and I am doing everything I can to make it and, offer my son a stable and safe home life. I have had many bad experiences in relationships so I am very unsure about getting into any other situation with any man. I have begun to realize that the reason I feel so alone is because my life is lacking the essential other half of it which is the partner that God has for me, I do not understand why I have this loneliness inside of myself when it does not seem that it is yet the time for me to meet that man that is meant for me.

Now I know that there are people out there feeling the same or who have felt the same way i currently do and i am asking for help, and even just a comforting word. If you already surpassed this issue i would love your help... Hope to hear from you soon>>...

New Outlook

I often heard from people that time heals all wounds, I did not believe this, as i know that many people have felt as one point or another in their lives. In the middle of the storm we often only see the chaos, and rarely what good can come from the wreckage. Fighting through the tough times can be very hard however the pay off is great. Not trying to rush into anything or to mend my broken heart by jumping into a relationship just for the sake of not being alone. Though there definitely are low times and days were it would be so easy to just fall into old habits, it is necessary to fins something to distract the mind, fill your life with hope and, in my case God and faith. I also examined myself and my life and decided to also fill my time with school, it took time to find what I really wanted to do and, what I would love enough to do for the rest of my life, in my case it is early childhood education. Returning to school may not be for everyone however i greatly recommend trying at least one or two classes to help enhance your life and career. If you are single a continuing education course may be a great way to meet someone.
