Never Be Lonely Again

10 August 2017 Written by 

There was a time when I ached with loneliness. Nothing seemed to fill the holes in my heart. Not my wonderful husband; not my delightful children. I finally discovered the root of this was the fact that I did not like myself. I didn’t want to be alone with myself. I was not my own friend.

 

It has been a long journey – learning to love and forgive myself. I finally came to a place where I realized that I am my own best friend. I am always here, ready to do anything I want to do whenever I want to do it. I can take myself out to the beach, to a movie, or just for a walk. Wherever I go, there I am!

 

I am truly never alone because I am always there with myself. It is within my grasp to make myself happy and joyful. I don’t need others to make me happy or joyful. Everything I need is already inside myself. So, I reach down and I grab hold of what I need. I have learned that it is my responsibility to take care of myself.

 

Yes, I am my own best friend and I am never alone or lonely. Such a wonderful gift!

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
