Even when we do have many powerful reasons for isolating, burrowing under the
blanket and hiding from the day rarely brings us the kind of relief we need.
Brooding about our circumstances, stewing with our feelings and sitting alone
and isolated, that usually just worsens our situation. It traps us in a sad
ruminative loop that pushes away the very type of connections that could
actually help alleviate our loneliness.
And if we don’t open our eyes to this
harmful cycle, it becomes harder and harder to snap out of it.
I once read that
the purpose of loneliness was to provide humans a transition to connection.
It’s an interesting way to process at that feeling. Almost as a momentum
device. Because no matter how empty and sad that loneliness is, it’s still
energy. Which means it can be channeled.
And that’s the moment. That’s the
pivot point when we can choose to live in a world with other people.
Next time the chilling vapor of loneliness begins to settle down, allow
yourself to feel those feelings, but then start converting that energy into
momentum. Use it to push your ass out the front door and rejoin the world.
soul with thank you.
Remember, action is the magic word that gets the
interpersonal ball rolling. We must move. Otherwise the loneliness will deepen
and trap us in a desert of isolation where we might find our way out.
LET ME ASK YA THIS...
What gives you the energy to leave your isolation?
