There’s nothing quite like the pain of a lonely heart

Clutching at life, holding on, looking for a break, waiting for something or someone to extend a hand.

Loneliness dwells in the heart,

It has very little to do with how many people you know and everything to do with being (and feeling) understood

With being (and feeling) valued

With having the ability to connect and feel connected

About finding your place in the world, fitting in.

It’s a dark place, sometimes filled with bitterness and resentment

Leading to increased, self-imposed isolation, building up barriers within yourself

Loneliness has nothing to do with being alone and more to do with being unable to appreciate your own company

A sense of loss, not knowing yourself

It’s about looking yourself in the mirror and not seeing through the pretense

Not being able to connect with the essence of who you are

About not understanding what you stand for and as a result not being able to recognise these qualities in others.

Overcoming loneliness is very much about reconnecting with your roots

It’s not about relationships; it’s about the right relationships.

It’s not about knowing people, it’s about deep human connection.

Being fully present and knowing what you have to offer.

It’s about reciprocity, shining bright and having that reflected back at you.

It’s about turning darkness into light

Despair into hope

Resentment into gratitude

And where you can see no light shining in on you, then taking it upon yourself to be that light to others.

  • The Decision of No Decision
    Indecision is a decision in and of itself, even though you may not recognise it as such. Your decision to do nothing – to let things play out on their own. It’s taking a back seat and waiting to see how the chips may fall.
  • Taking your second chance
    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.
  • Symphony of Sadness
    There’s a great symphony in sadnessA million things conspiring beautifully together to set a sombre tone. It’s a tragedy, no doubt. Irrational at times, often transcending words or reason.But incomprehensible in...
  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
