Striding alone along the shores of Life

Though we may be surrounded by numerous people, maybe even friends, we at-times feel all alone. Some people choose to be alone, to better understand themselves, some are left alone. Some shatter and some grow stronger. We all have, at some point in time felt alone and hoped for someone to take our hands. Some build a boat to cross their tide, some wait for one to cone along, and some are too afraid to get into one. Describe your experience, if you wish. :-)

Life is definitely a long, hard road to travel so you need a helping hand every time you set to travel its path. You also need to rest once in a while because the path of life isn't really a walk in the park. It could be a long walk in a dark forest, a deserted island, or just in a really creepy place. You're going to need all the help you can get in order for you to make it to the end.

Yep. You'll never know when disaster could happen. Most of the time you'll appreciate accepting a helping hand than doing things on your own but there are times when you have to do things alone.

When I feel lonely, I still have to remember that I do not have to feel like being forgotten by others. Actually I like to spend time on my own, to do some independent work. I get tired being in society for longer time. Some say if we let ourselves love deeply someone or something worthwhile with the whole heart to the very end, then there will not be loneliness.

I am proud to say that when i passed the hardest hurdle in my life, my husband was there to comfort me and help me. My sister and my sister-in-law were also there to share me their comfort. But i think, it was really my faith in God that sustained me more.

I am single Mom, I have a son who is 19 now but left home because to study in a university farther from our place. After that, i have been living alone with my dog, sometimes i miss his presence but most of the time, i enjoyed my freedom. When I get bored, i go some place to spend weekend, it doesn't have to be a fancy place, but a place new to you. Many times in my life, I come encounter with God by living alone for me. There is no one to call when i am in trouble with thought, I only speak to God then. Be Happy!
