Being Alone is a State of Serenity

Are you lonely? Are you lonely because of the absence of another’s presence? Are you unhappy?

Well I don’t know about you but over the past couple of years, I’ve grown to learn that being alone is a state of serenity. I don’t feel as if I’m lonely because spiritually I know I’m not. No one may be around me physically but I’m okay with that.

Question: How well do you know yourself? Be honest…

Self-denial is the first thing one must come to terms with when being “real” with yourself. The reason is because so many people walk around with a mask on trying to cover up so many things in order to avoid criticism. Or maybe it’s just because they don’t really want to believe the truth about their flaws.

Flaws are imperfectly beautiful. Yes, I said it…

I dare you to say it’s not. Everything great about you is good but what about the things you lack in? Someone can not possibly know another person well enough without learning to love their flaws too. But that means you have to love yourself FIRST before you can even think about loving someone else (either romantically or friendship). Confessing and accepting your flaws can help with insecurities. You should never feel ashamed of being yourself. You’re worth so much more than the small-minded criticism of this world.

I live by the motto of “Living to impress none but only to express”.

Have you ever realized how often you try to impress people who could care less about who you are? And yet, the ones who really know you and accept you for you don’t need to be impressed. If anything the only person you should be trying to impress is yourself. At the end of the day, you have to face that mirror and ask yourself, “Am I Happy?”

Happiness begins from within!

No one else, I’ll repeat that, NO ONE ELSE…can make you happy except yourself. It is not your spouse’s job to make you happy. It is YOUR job to make YOU happy. Find out what you love to do. Hang around positive people who uplifts one another. When you’re happy, you’re in the state of serenity. You’re calm, your mind is at peace, your joy can’t be broken no matter what obstacles you face and you’re content with yourself.

You have to be alone to discover your true beauty inside and out. It’s a journey to experience and it requires you to spend time alone in order to grow. Having inner peace is very important. I used to over think a lot, depression, stressing, fears, insomnia, nightmares (when I do sleep), etc… Those things were slowly but surely draining away my sanity. But now, I’ve never felt more at peace in this world of chaos.

Don’t be like that and if you’re already at that point, have faith. It’s not the end, when you make the decision to change your situation is when a new chapter of your life begins. Nothing is ever easy but just remember it’s always worth it when the storm clears up. Get your peace back and be free.

You’re not alone, Elohim is always by your side. Shalom!
