Do You Feel Lonely Sometimes?

We all need someone.

That statement alone had struck fear in me many times before. I was rebelling against the fact that I needed “people” when I had experienced “people” being horrible to me. Now, what’s wrong with that statement is that I have not experienced everyone. I made my experiences with a handful of people to become truth. I believed that it was true that I can make it in this world alone, although I still desired someone to share my life with. I believed that it was true that I will never find anyone, outside of my own family, that will fit me or want to be friends with me. I have heard from people that there is a difference between being “alone” and being “lonely”. To be “alone” is to be only with yourself in a certain space or context, but to be “lonely” is to be absent of true human connection. A person can be alone in a room by themselves to study or work, but they are not lonely because they have healthy relationships to engage with outside of them. This is what we truly need….life-giving circles.

Those circles can be any amount of people, but their individual’s purpose is the same…to help you walk out this journey of life. When I think of the relationships I chose to entertain, I have to admit to myself that I chose those people out of my own rejection toward myself. To put up with anything from people is to reject yourself of real love, real acceptance, and real care. As a result, I had to learn some hard lessons. I felt drained from certain situations. I felt I had to sacrifice who I truly was in order to please them all the time BUT is not really their fault because I CHOSE THEM. I CHOSE LONELINESS instead of genuine connection. Yes, a person can have a lot of people around them, but still feel lonely. That loneliness comes from a lack of being poured into by the right people. This is one area of my life that I had to take to God in prayer, because I finally realized that I NEED PEOPLE. (Life will teach you that!)

When I think about certain situations I was in, I needed a true friend back then to guide me out that mess. I needed someone to correct the bad behavior I was displaying and remind me that I was better than that. I needed someone to actually take the time out to get to know me and navigate certain seasons in my life alongside me. Now, I am very aware that some of the people that I called “friend” and “boo” were not really in my life for the right reasons. The fact that I entertained them in those moments of my life revealed that I was wrong for becoming a part of their lives too. I am at the point in my journey that I am only seeking to engage with “life-giving” people. I do not want to be lonely.

As always feel free to comment and leave your thoughts…don’t mind chatting with you, my friend!

About Me

Hi..My name is ShuCora Walker. No, I am not the woman in the picture, but my words represent people like her. People who love good conversations. People who enjoy sharing their life stories. People who tell the truth to not only inspire but to heal, learn, and grow. I have been writing since my preteen years and found peace in letting my heart bleed out on the paper through my words. The focus of my writing has always been to share stories of triumph, struggles, and faith because God is the reason why I write. I remember at one point that I wanted to take my life, but God deemed it not to be because He still had a purpose for my life. Now, I am using my words to share my life journey so others can learn from it. Yes, one day I plan to open up this platform to other writers so we can continue to learn from different experiences of life. So, this is a space for anyone seeking to live a life of real freedom and enjoy some good moments along the way…
