Most likely we've all experienced loneliness at one time or another and it goes away. However, when the feelings of despair, depression and sadness consume our entire being it's time to seek help.
Never Be Lonely Again - The Way Out of Emptiness, Isolation, and a Life Unfulfilled is a must read for anyone feeling hopeless.
Inspired by the teachings of the Dalai Lama (and a personal visit with), authors Pat Love, Ed.D. and Jon Carlson, Psy.D., Ed.D. have left no stone unturned in their quest to help you.
This book will teach readers how to:
~ Find the necessary time to maintain friendships
~ Reach out to people when in need
~ Be truly present for a partner
~ Develop healthier behaviours that will nurture relationships
~ Be open to lasting, personal connections
In addition, Never Be Lonely Again asks five questions, when answered open and honestly, will change your life:
1. Who am I?
Your core values reflect who you are. Think about how you want the people you love to remember you, and then live each day demonstrating these characteristics and your life will take on a new direction and energy.
2. Am I connected?
You need three to five people in your close circle of contact—people who know you and pay close attention to you; in whom you can and do confide. If you improve the quality of your connections, comfort and contentment will greatly increase.
3. Am I living in community?
Invest in people outside your close circle of friends/family and you feel a true sense of well-being and belonging.
4. Are my talents being utilized in meaningful work?
Work doesn’t have to be the activity for which you get paid. Talents are something you enjoy doing—when you use them to benefit others you feel productive and useful, like you are earning your keep here on earth.
5. Am I living out the purpose of my life?
Chances are, if you concentrate on the other four questions you will answer yes to this question but it bears asking. Am I doing what I was put here on earth to do? What could I do that would make the answer to this question yes? Do it and your life will improve in every possible way.
Don't spend another moment caught in the loneliness trap, grab a copy of Never Be Lonely Again and let the healing begin. You'll be glad you did.
