Remember That Life Is Not A Straight Road

When you feel alone…

When you feel like nobody understands your pain…

When you feel like you’re all that you have left…

Remember, life will sometimes test you. You will feel the urge to die at times. You will feel like everything that was good that happened was a sham. Don’t give up.

You’re not here to live a perfect life of happiness 100% of the time. You’re here to grow, to learn to accept the things which you have no control over. You are here to believe that things would get better even when  you currently see no reason to believe so.

And when you look around you, and see no hope for a miracle, trust that the path laid out for you will eventually lead you to your desired destination – or an even better one.

Life will not be like a straight road that you drive on smoothly. Life would be like a curvy road on which there are potholes available. Navigating this path will mean you would have to develop the necessary coping skills needed to become good at doing the one thing that you may suck at.

Appreciate those who’ve become family to you. Be thankful for your life journey so far. Take some moment to embrace yourself. Life can be worth it because you showed up.

Life is not a straight road. Remember that. It would help you keep your hope alive. 

These feelings of Loneliness 

It’s real.

It feels like a dark tunnel.

Picking up the phone, among my few friends and having a friend in mind to call, but deciding not to call her because she hardly answers the phone on the first two to three rings, I do my best to relax my mind. But it seems tougher than I initially thought. 

The feelings of Loneliness can be tough. It takes your mind to places that you normally would advice people not think of.

You see, I’m normally a hopeful person – very optimistic to be precise. But lately, I have been having periodic feelings of Loneliness. It surprises me because on very many ‘sunny’ days, I enjoy myself + my lone times too. I normally feel like the leader of a fox pack. 

But still, it makes me wonder if stress has contributed to me having these feelings or if my anxiety medication has had an effect on bringing me in touch with my inner feelings that might have been surpresssed over the years.

I have been single for a long while. And I have also enjoyed my Singlehood.

The real question I can’t figure out an answer to is “What or who in heaven’s name am I missing?”

How do really old people manage their feelings of Loneliness? Why should I feel lonely when I have many things to be thankful for?
