How to kick that lonely feeling
Between email, Facebook, and everything else, we live in a world that can seem crowded.
But even with so much going on, do you ever feel a little lonely?
I’m here to tell you: you are not alone.
. . . what matters most in friendship is feeling understood and accepted, just the way you are.
And that can help you out in times of loneliness.
It’s something that I learned years ago that literally changed my life.
I thought, “Carol, you are always going to be with yourself—always. You might as well learn to become your own best friend.”
I was the one person who was always going to be with me, so I might as well be a little friendlier to myself!
Next time you’re feeling lonely, take a moment to understand, accept, and just love yourself.
I’ll tell you what happens when you do…
You’ll speak more kindly to yourself. You’ll see the best in yourself. You’ll be more encouraging about your dreams. You’ll spend some quality time with yourself, doing what you want most. You’ll be more willing to laugh with yourself.
Here’s the big benefit to trying this:
In your process of becoming your own best friend, other people will be drawn to you because you inspire them to be themselves.
Next time you’re feeling lonely, be friendlier to yourself for a while.
And then reach out. You may be surprised who else wants friendship, too.
Here’s to being friends to ourselves—remarkable and amazing women who are making a difference in the world.
