Have you felt lonely in your life?
Have you felt the need to be understood and supported?
Have you wanted to feel heard, to be held when you’re feeling really exhausted and low.
Loneliness is very different from being alone. Loneliness is a sense of vacuum, a sense of emptiness inside. Where we need somebody else to fill that up and to make us feel okay.
Being alone is when you’re okay with being by yourself and there is a sense of peace within yourself.
Most of us keep talking about how lonely we feel on daily basis and the idea is to constantly engage in activities outside to fill that loneliness that’s within.
How can we stop this pattern and the cycle of trying to fill up the loneliness and to be able to celebrate the moments of aloneness that we have and also to be able to celebrate our connections with people
There are two things that I would like to talk about today
#1 is to stop running and establish the connection back with yourself. It could be either reading a book or taking a walk or maybe just going on a coffee date with yourself.
#2 is to build a support system, which is beyond one or two people who are close to you in your life.
So this is when you’re not clinging on them and you’re able to know that only one or two people cant satisfy all your needs
Today I just want to leave you with one thought that loneliness is actually a choice that you are making.
And today you can choose to not feel lonely and celebrate your moments of aloneness knowing that you are enough within yourself.
