Let Your Loneliness Lead You To Greatness

At some point in time, we have all experienced a feeling of loneliness. For some, loneliness can be too much to bear. When we become lonely we start to replay memories of the past and we start to feel sad. Sometimes loneliness can also lead to depression.

This post is not just for those who have experienced or witnessed domestic violence, this post is for everyone. I wrote this post to encourage you because I too have experienced loneliness, but I believe that we can use our feelings of loneliness to lead us to greatness. Look at this quote below by Mr. Yousuf Karsh. I believe what He says is so true.

I believe that God uses loneliness to get us closer to Him, He uses loneliness to speak to us. Sometimes you need to be alone in order to think clearly. I know for me personally, I have prefer to be alone when I am working. It gives me time to focus and to relax. How can you fully create in a environment full of noise?

I would like to share another quote with you, this is a quote that actually changed my life a couple of years ago when I first saw it. Look at this quote below by Mr. Dag Hammarskjold.
At the time that I first saw this quote, I was going through a rough time in my life. A time when I felt alone and I wanted to give up, but this quote gave me life because I know that I have purpose. So instead of me allowing my loneliness to bring me down, why wouldn't I just allow it to lift me up? So I pose this question to you: What is your passion? Along with that question, when you start
 to feel lonely what are you wishing for?
I challenge you to allow your loneliness to lead you to lead  you to greatness. You would be surprise. What if you got lonely and just started to write? It's possible that it could turn into a book. What if you got lonely and start to sing? It's possible that it could turn into a song? What if you go lonely and found your purpose? If it wasn't for my loneliness, I'm sure that this blog wouldn't be here today. If it wasn't for my loneliness, I would not have discovered that my pain had purpose and that purpose is to help someone else who will or is going through what I'm going through.
So what will you do the next time you start to feel lonely? It is all up to you, but from me to you, I pray that it leads you to greatness.
God bless,
