I am not alone. I am surrounded by God’s love, and that will sustain me through everything. I’ve been blessed by particular people throughout my life that encourage me, hold me accountable, and cheer me on. Just as they uplift me, I feel fulfillment when I can do the same for them. Many times, too, I have struggled with feelings of loneliness. In these times, it’s most helpful for me to honestly acknowledge how I feel, talk about it with someone if I can, pray for God to remind me of his loving presence, and unplug from social media. Sometimes, it’s also good for me to call, text, or write a letter to someone to just to let them know that I am thinking of them. These actions give me light when I feel alone.
