Most people write off their longing for friends and family as so many losses in their lives, when they should count the fact that their heart is able to long so hard and to love so much as among their greatest blessings.
For very long time we suffer from loneliness. We go out for lunch. Stay the whole day in the office, workout in the gym. Go back home and in the end of the day we feel like we were alone. No body cared about us. Back in the reality, the loneliness became even more devastating. We could pretend not to care, telling ourselves that we didn’t need people. But we knew were lying. Connection, not disconnection, was what we longed for.
I’m here to tell you that it is possible to rebuild the connections we lost in our life. Although, the loneliness doesn’t go away immediately; it takes time. The more we try to connect with new people honestly, believing we are worthwhile and have something give, the less lonely we feel. There’s a world out there, and we belong in it.
