Holiday Loneliness

The joyous sounds of Christmas’ cheer can cause some to feel lonely due to grief (loss of a loved one) devastating break up (divorce, friendship, sibling rivalry), unemployment (recent lay off), or bad memories (previous negative holiday interactions). We all would like to avoid feelings of loneliness during this holiday season. When the feeling of loneliness manifest let us prayerfully seek God’s guidance, admit our feelings, and take time to address the feeling. In order to move forward and overcome this feeling of loneliness, we must address it versus suppressing or ignoring it.
Here are some suggestive tips. Remember before trying the following suggestions, always seek your Spiritual Physician (SP) for the solution to be used.
1. Spend the necessary time needed in God’s word. Talk to God about your feelings and proclaim His word over your emotions.
2. Me-time-Take the time to pamper yourself. Do something you enjoy doing within your budget.
3. Understand that you are not along spiritually (God is with you) and physically (seek people who will motivate and encourage you during this time). Choose to get connected.
4. Focus on being a blessing to others. When you choose to get your mind off of self and ask God how you can be a blessing to others, the spirit of loneliness lift as you engage in loving, blessing, encouraging and motivating others during the holiday season.
5. Remember what the reason for the season is about. The Holy birth of Christ the Savior.
“And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased” (Luke 2: 13-14).
