Loneliness is one of the many enemies of a chronic health condition.
Loneliness is to be battled.
It is to be confronted and beaten back.
It is a clever enemy, loneliness…often relying on the sneak attack…not easily identified until you find yourself fully engulfed in it.
Loneliness is mean.
It can be consuming. It steals your confidence. It erodes your happiness.
Loneliness is to be challenged.
It is to be guarded against at all cost. Stay alert to its approach. It’s always on the move…lurking…waiting to strike.
Don’t expect others to fix your loneliness. It’s a war you must ironically wage alone.
Push yourself to be part of the world…of the world…no matter how you feel.
Don’t give in to fatigue and pain as these are the weapons of loneliness.
Loneliness is a state of mind. It is not a reflection of being alone.
Loneliness is selfish.
It does not want to share you.
Rise above it. Don’t let it win.
Loneliness attempts to trick the mind, convincing you that no one cares.
Share your loneliness. Bring it out of the darkness and watch it disappear.
