To be alone, but never lonely.

Do you feel lonely, often?

Sometimes, we don’t feel lonely because we have a lack of people around us, but rather, because we are completely disconnected from our true selves. 

When this happens, we often try to fill the void with ‘something’ – whatever distracts us from having to address this issue.

But when you choose to REALLY get to know yourself – who you are, and what’s truly important to you, and what your soul wants (which is often very different from what society expects of you) – that’s when the ‘loneliness’ dissipates.

If you don’t know how to do that, then find someone who can help you. Someone who can guide you to connect WITHIN.

I have always said: be your own best friend, and you will never feel lonely again.

After all, YOU are the only one who is with YOU for your entire LIFE!

Your soul is literally with ‘you’ (your physical body that you identify with) from birth to death. And beyond, depending what you believe in.

Your soul is eternal. Timeless. Ageless. It is such a beautiful thing to recognise and connect to.

Make your soul your very best friend. Listen to it. And HONOUR the guidance you receive when you listen in!

We all know what it feels like when we are not quite on the right track, not on the path that is truly authentic for us. We get little consistent nudges from our heart, letting us know to listen up, and make change.

The ones who bravely follow this guidance, are, in my observations, the ones who end up living lives that inspire them and fulfil them. They know that they are the masters of their own destiny, and that they do not need anything from the external world, to be content in the moment. 

I’m not suggesting that we don’t need connection and community. Of course we do. Human beings are literally wired for connection. We are tribal at our core!!

I’m also not suggesting that we isolate ourselves, or don’t make change where change is very much needed, or anything like that.

But, there is a lot to be said for connecting to our inner landscape, rather than constantly looking outside of ourselves, and projecting our expectations and needs upon the people around us, rather than giving ourselves what we need, first and foremost.

When we expect the world to fulfil us, we are setting ourselves up for disappointment.

When we choose to fulfil ourselves, from within, by deeply knowing who we are and then creating a life that reflects that us, we are setting ourselves up for a life of lasting contentment.

With love –
