I spend more time with myself than with anyone else. Wouldn’t it make sense to put some energy into making that relationship as fulfilling as possible? Another person cannot prevent me from feeling lonely, but my inner emptiness can be satisfied. I can come to value my own company. I am a worthwhile companion.
One of the illusions shared by many of us who have been affected by alcoholism is that only another person, usually the alcoholic, can fill that empty place within us. if only he were more attentive, if only she got sober, if only they were with me now, I wouldn’t be lonely. But many of us remain just as lonely ever after those conditions are met.
Today, when I’m by myself, I will know that I am in good company. When I stop expecting others to meet all of my needs, I find new and exciting ways to enjoy my own friendship. And when I do get lonely, I have the comfort, knowing that I have my God and my Saviour who never leaves me.
Today spend some times in prayer. Close your eyes and open your heart. Have a deeper relationship with God. Invite Him to dwell in you. He will never leaves you nor forsake you.
Take care all as always! Cheers :).
