Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Blahginess!

What it means to be alone.

Right now my wife and daughter are away at her parents house. I haven’t had much time to appreciate the fact that I’m home all alone. And I do value that time as much as I can. But I have been working by myself at the office lately. And now that I am going home by myself the loneliness is starting to creep in. What has been your lonelest moment? How do you deal with loneliness?

    Loneliest moment? You mean there are moments?

    Anne–yes I have plunged headlong and you are one of the few who have inspired me and shown me by example of what a blog should be. Thanks!

    Jimmy–This is a pretty sad statement…you feel lonely all the time? or maybe just most of the time?

    I do not think I could pick one loneliest moment; rather a type of moment when the loneliness seems worst. When my world falls apart or I am struggling with something and feel that I have nowhere, no one to turn to. It could be a normal thing in life – like a death. But because I feel I have nowhere safe to go with the pains and the tears I keep them inside and I just end up feeling worse and it last longer. This in itself makes me feel isolated and even more lonely….which makes it hurt more…. a circle of loneliness. More and more I am learning to take these pains and tears to my Father in trust, in prayer. I have learned to experience His arms about me. Yet, I still cannot stop suppressing the pain and increasing the loneliness. Sorry for the heavy answer to the question.

    Karen–Dude (sorry Dudette), thanks for the honesty. I love it so much when complete strangers can just open up and show me what it means to walk in authenticity through life. That is exactly why I am here doing this whole thing! Thanks for sharing. I look forward to hearing more from you in the future.
