How To Cope With Being Alone

Love. Excitement. It'll happen in its own time. I know, I know it's hard to believe when you are in the situation but it will happen. You feel like you're all alone? Well, that's not true. There are hundreds of people feeling this way, but in your eyes everyone's loved up and happy. I know when you're in that position, you feel like closing yourself off to the world. But you mustn't. You've got to believe that all the waiting that you are doing will be worthwhile. It took me a long time to work this out but like anything, if you don't believe in yourself, if you're not happy; no one will want to be around you.

It's fine saying all this, but how do you get through? There's no real answer, you just have to cope best you can. Focusing on what is going on in your life right now is a good way to handle it, sending out love from your end and knowing that you are strong enough to face this on your own. It's as the lyric in 'Can You Feel The Love Tonight?' by Elton John rightfully points out: that the twisting kalideoscope moves us all in turn. Obviously, you are strong enough to walk this plain alone for the time being. It won't be forever, although it feels like that now.

'Learn to play the Appreciation game. Look for things to appreciate in every situation. When you actively seek the positive, you become more appreciative and optimistic, which is a requirement for living the life of your dreams. Look for the good.' This quote from Jack Canfield is really strong. Because it is true. Actively seeking out the positive means you will find at least one positive in a situation. And when you do, please share your experience below. There is a positive in everything that happens in our lives, be it big or small.

Let me know of ways that you handle being alone, in a general sense I'd love to know...
