During the days and times I became reacquainted with myself, were the years I chose to be on my own, no husband, partner or roommate. Just me. Days, months of meeting my true self.
Are you fearful of being alone? I think many of us believe if we are alone, we will become lonely. I think this is rarely the case, but fears can create significant blocks for some of us.
In a culture where we see so many ‘perfect’ lives depicted on social media, it’s critical that we learn self compassion. Once we know compassion for ourselves, we know how to feel it for others, making comparison and envy less appealing to us.
You can experience a wonderful transformation when you create spaciousness for your emotional growth and evolution.
Are you ready to boldly step into these notions, to reclaim your independence and feel confident and powerful. Fear is really only a character in a story, a messenger ?
“When I get lonely these days,
I think: So BE lonely.
Learn your way around loneliness. Make a map of it.
Sit with it, for once in your life. Welcome to the human experience.
But never again use another person’s body or emotions as a scratching post
for your own unfulfilled yearnings.”
