Years ago, I was in a horrible, abusive relationship. I’m here to tell you, that being alone beats a bad relationship EVERY TIME!
I would much rather be lonely ALONE, than be lonely WITH somebody. Am I right?
So, don’t be afraid of being alone. “Alone” is just a transitional period.
If we HOLD ON to something in our hand, we can’t pick up anything else until we finally let it go. Then, our hand is OPEN so we can receive something NEW into our life.
So, if we’re holding on to friends that don’t really value us, or if we’re holding on to people that aren’t good for us…we know we’ve got to make a CHANGE.
We’ve got to LET THEM GO! Why were we drawn to those folks in the first place?
We all have work to do in the area of relationships.
- We need to work on ourselves. (Me too!)
- Get rid of those wrong relationships.
- And don’t start backing up. We need to get ourselves OUT THERE!
Get out there and build some strong, positive, new relationships. Join a bowling league, start a book club or play on a softball team. Get around places that have great people in them.
It’s much easier if you belong to a church.
It’s all about finding common ground. There are probably people in your phone contacts that you already share a common interest with.
Just text them, and tell them how you REALLY feel about them. “Thanks, for being such a good friend when I was going through that bad time.”
Find COMMON GROUND and then show that you CARE. That’s the way to build strong friendships and never EVER feel alone again!
What kind of things are you interested in? Do you have any unusual hobbies or talents? I’d really like to know.
