Lonely No More
Have you been feeling disconnected, isolated and alone?
Here are some important key factors in having good relationships that are all within your grasp.
Making time for those you care about really makes a huge difference. Fellowship creates relationship. Prioritize your calendar to be with those you wish to be close to.
This is something that I believe most people are lacking, communication skills. Tell people how much you love them and miss them. Celebrate their victories, and sympathize their losses, let them know you care with your words, emotions, and investment.
How can you encourage those you love? How do you show them you care? Do you really know them? Are you aware of what they have going on or what is in their hearts?
Being real with others really brings your relationship to another level. Can they come to you when their world is crashing down or when they need someone? Will you make time to listen or want to hear the truth?
Will you go beneath the surface and allow them and yourself to be vulnerable? True intimacy is born out of being vulnerable together. How much you respond to others really shows the how much you care.
Distance should not be the problem (or excuse) when technology is so wonderful these days. If you are wondering what your grown children are up to, or the grand kids... Face Time is an amazing thing!!
Oh, how I wish I would have had Face Time to regularly see and hear my Mema who lived out of state. Even texting is a wonderful tool to check in on your loved one. Example to text your niece or grandchild: "Hi Honey, How did you do on your math exam? I prayed for you! I love and adore you, Princess!"
What you invest in grows.
"Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace." Ephesians 4:2-3
