Adjusting to the importance of being connected
Lots of people find themselves feeling lost and alone, with no idea how they've come to be this way. It can feel like somehow the wheels have just come off of your cart and you've lost your bearings. Loneliness is painful, and no one deserves to be in pain. Finding your way back begins with reacquainting yourself with yourself. I know this may sound corny, but you should be your own best friend. I also know that this is a complex concept that is very hard to put into practice.

There are some simple first steps you can take:
• Give yourself permission to like what you like. This means if you love an activity or lifestyle choice, don't let other's opinions of that activity or lifestyle choice shame you or take away your joy. I say shame on them for being judgmental.
• Accept that you are not perfect, forgive yourself for not being perfect, and move on. Don't dwell on your mistakes. Everybody makes mistakes.
• Find the space and time to figure out what it is you want and then make a plan to get it. By making a plan, dreams become goals. You will be more fulfilled and so much happier when you are working toward a future you want to be a part of.

Even if you are in a relationship that is leaving you feeling alone, the above steps will help you be true to you, while figuring out what it is you want. Once you know what it is you want then you can work towards achieving your goal. The process of figuring out what you want will help you reconnect with yourself and understand who you are. When you are fully connected to yourself, feelings of loneliness begin to fade.
Being connected to yourself will improve all aspects of your life. Once that connection is made, you will see your whole life come into balance. You will have a sense of clarity and purpose. Once you have clarity on who you are, you will see the world thorough fresh eyes. By focusing on what is working for you and what is not, you can build on the things that are while letting go of the things that aren't.
