Hope Rising - When Facing Life Alone


My beliefs are quite personal but, I do go to church, and for the next few weeks we are learning about HOPE RISING, and how it affects the following:

+ When life doesn't go the way you planned
+ When the speed of life is out of control
+ When dealing with disappointment
+ When facing life alone
+ During a well-lived life
+ When made for significance

I have a few problems of my own, and I feel a lot better when I openly write about it.  I thought that this would be a good place to write about the lessons for the next few weeks.

Last week, I wrote about disappointment and how to deal with it.  It's not always the easiest thing.

This week, we are discussing facing life alone.

Isn't this sad?  It may be sad, but it's very common.  In fact, you can feel lonely when you are surrounded by people.


I know this feeling all too well.  I feel like I'm cornered and nobody is there to rescue me.  For the past three years, I have felt like I don't fit in.  That makes me feel alone.  Really alone.

It's easy to feel like you belong, like you are surrounded with like company when you are accepted and when others share the same views as you.  I don't know if it is because I have gotten older or if it's due to past experiences but things change. That's a fact.

Surround yourself with people that you can relate to, people that support you, and people that bring out the best in you.

I'm excited to write about next week-- stay tuned!
