I think there are so many people who are alone. Male and Female, some by choice and others by circumstance. I was divorced in February 2001 and by circumstance I was alone. Almost 16 years later to the day I am alone by choice as well. These days it is difficult to meet people. Well, in my experience it is difficult to meet people I’d like to get to know better. Being alone can be a great challenge at times. The waves and feelings of loneliness come and go. I tend to do a self evaluation when loneliness creeps in to see what could be triggering the feelings.
Loneliness is handled differently by everyone. I know women who can’t seem to be alone for any real length of time. They are constantly looking and searching for a man, going from one man or relationship to another. In my opinion, there is nothing better than being alone. If you can be happy alone then you have discovered the key to your happiness and that’s yourself. If you have to have a man in your life to even get close to your idea of happiness, then you may be in trouble. Your happiness is now in the hands of someone else, a stranger as a matter of fact. Get to know yourself, you might find that you’re a pretty awesome person. You also might find out why you have a constant desire or need to have a man in your life. Knowing why, is the first step to your remedy.
I know I couldn’t have made it this far without the help of God. He is my strength, comfort and always there when I need him. Psalms 28:7 KJV, The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.
