Feeling alone

Sunday, September 06, 2020

I have changed a lot of things over the past two years. I think for the better, but sometimes it feels lonely. The decisions I have made have given me less time with my children since I left their father. Also being in a 16 year relationship was very busy. Between work and raising my children and going to college, I had very little time to feel alone, or feel anything. I just kept busy to keep from feeling. I kept pushing. Even though my stress levels are now lower, I do feel pretty lonely and I don't want to fill those voids with food, or company that is unhealthy. I am trying to be the best version of me, regardless of size but I do miss companionship and being admired.
I guess that is all I want to write about today.

    Wish I had some words of inspiration, but I do not. I am a recovering alcoholic of 9 years. My last few years of drinking left me very lonely. Probably not the same lonely your feeling now , but I was alone and as lonely as any one person could be. The only thing that saved me was a gift of desperation and I cried out for help! At this time in my life I was Agnostic, really had no belief at all! I don't know how the universe works, I don't know how my higher power works, whom I choose to call God, I just know that it does. I pray and meditate each morning and I thank God before I lay down at night. I was all but doomed, and today I am living the dream! I was learning more about navigating the pages of this site, adding friends that had added me and I came across your blog. I read it and thought back on the days that I came too and there were the four horsemen Terror, Bewilderment, Frustration, and Despair. I believe That God is speaking to me in the words you wrote, reminding me of the path that I once walked and the reasons to stay on the straight and narrow. Just a short part of my story, felt like sharing with you. This too shall pass, I hope that you find the answers that you are looking for, I hope life treats you kind.
