There are times in life when we may feel alone, isolated, left out. Rather than sink into a morass of depression and loneliness, let’s just take step back, breathe for a bit and reassess.
Sure what we’re feeling may be real. But could it be possible that this is happening partly because of our own selves? Cause we’ve been shutting people out, keeping the walls up, hiding behind excuses of being busy, not letting people see the sadness and vulnerabilities inside of ourselves. Cause we haven’t been reaching out, trying to make connections with people, making them a part of our lives, we haven’t really been spending quality time with others – getting to know them, allowing them to get to know us.
Even if we have been guilty of this there’s no cause to feel bad or flay ourselves. The good news is we now know exactly what to do to alleviate our loneliness – exactly the opposite of what we’ve been doing. Open our hearts, let people in, let them know what’s going on, let them see the true us.
There is more than enough love and companionship for each one of us. All we have to do is reach out and grab it.
Big panda hug and lots of love to you
