lonely heartToday’s blogpost is dedicated to all lonely hearts…if you, reading this blogpost today, feel that you are one lonely heart, then sit down, relax, read on and let yourself go into the upcoming words.

So, you are feeling lonely. You are feeling lost. Nobody understands you. You are screaming from within, you are crying desperately for help, yet no one seems to be hearing you.

You look around for someone who can help pull you up from your misery, yet all those around you seem to be occupied with anything other than you. You feel unimportant. Irrelevant. You have become a ‘nobody’.

Your heart yearns for love. You feel a desperate need to be loved and cared for. Appreciated. You yearn for arms to hold you, to not let you go, to show you that you are the best thing that has ever happened to them. Yet the only arms you can find are the comfort of a pillow soaked with saddened tears.

lonely heartsYou do your best to uplift others who are feeling low at this point in time…yet there is nobody out there who seems to care to uplift you.

Sadness…

Desperation…

Misery…

 

STOP!

This is not the way to go! Yes, you may feel sad, lonely. You may be feeling all this confusion. Yet you are not realising that you are acting as a victim. You are yearning for someone to come save you from the misery you feel you have fallen into. You are putting all your trust in others, as if there may be some superhero ready to come save you.

Well, there IS a superhero, and this superhero is YOU!

You will keep on falling into this pit of darkness unless you stop acting like a victim and start to put all your faith in yourself. You have the power to stand back up on your feet any time you choose to. You are the one who can ultimately save yourself.

Think about it. With regards to the World Population according to Wikipedia, as of today, it is estimated to number 7.134 billion by the United States Census Bureau (USCB). Can you imagine how many more potential friends you still have out there? Can you imagine how different your life will be if you open up to more possibilities? To more potential friends?

Do not feel alone. You are not the only lonely heart out there. There are others who are going through the same darkness as you are. There are many others who are yearning to find someone like you with whom they can talk and be listened to. Get it?

lonely heartsSee, the problem is that when we find ourselves falling into a depressive state, what happens is we build tall, solid walls around us. We become so afraid of hurting ourselves even more that we enter into a cocoon state so as to protect ourselves from further hurt. The thing is that when we do this, we close out any other potential friends who would be more than willing to listen to you and offer you words of advice or just a shoulder to lean on.

This ending year I have been blessed by quite a good amount of people coming to me for a word of advice or just needing a friend to listen to them. I’ve even had suicidal people I never knew before contacting me, yearning for someone to show them some care. I am happy to say that most of these new friends have made drastic changes in the way they see life today. Today they are full of vitality, eager to live, happily moving on. I am so very proud of them all!

These people thank me. They keep mentioning that I have ‘saved’ them. The only saving however didn’t come from me…it came from themselves. It came because they managed to see past the darkness and into a whole new light. They managed to uncover their true potential. All I did was offering a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen and a friendly word of advice, but the drastic change came from themselves.

My dear friend, do not feel discouraged. No matter what is troubling you right now, no matter what words have brought you tears, you are far greater than you can imagine!

If you are feeling alone, do not be shy to reach out. There are many out there who are willing to just be there to listen to you. And if you can’t find anyone you can trust and feel a need to connect with me, feel free to contact me anytime. I guarantee that whatever you share with me stays with me. I won’t judge you. I won’t get angry with anything that you may say. I am here just as a friend, willing to listen to whatever you feel a need to say.

Let go of your fears. Break the walls that you have built around you for fear of being hurt. Use all that you have learned from past hurtful experiences in your favour, to move forward. It is okay to seek your own happiness. It is okay to please yourself by pursuing your own dreams, even if it seems that those around you don’t agree with you. Your life, your choices.

No matter what past you’ve had, today is the day you take back your life. Start creating the life of your dreams, the life that YOU want to live. You have all the power necessary to go for all that makes your soul soar! Stop existing and start living! This is a new day. This is YOUR day! Make it count! You ARE worth it!

 

Much love to you and your loved ones,

Claire

 

P.S. Here is a song dedicated to all of you who may be feeling a bit low right now…break those walls and let your true selves shine <3

CONCRETE ANGEL – GARETH EMERY

Let me breath you in, and breath the words in your mouth
Inside your shivering, the silence shouts so loud
I just want to, I just want to stay around
And while my heart beats, I promise I won’t let you down.

If I’m somewhere else it doesn’t mean that I don’t see
That you don’t trust yourself, that’s why you don’t trust me
It makes me crazy, when you’re crazy, you don’t speak
You think you know me, but what you know is just skin deep

If you keep building these walls, brick by brick towers so tall
Soon I won’t see you at all, until the concrete angel falls
I knew who you were from the start, but now I don’t know who you are
Soon there will be nothing at all, until the concrete angel falls
