Fear of Being Alone

Maybe that desire to be wanted
Comes from not wanting ourselves
We believe that we are unlovable
And need that void filled by someone else
Instead of learning to fully love and accept ourselves

And you start going through cycles
Of punishing and projecting our pain onto others
Not realizing that the wounded child
Is still bleeding
And wants to be held by the same vessel

And spoken to with compassion
That you are enough
And who you are is not an obstacle

It makes you unique
That you are perfectly imperfect


We all have been there, escaping the discomfort of how we feel.
Realize that being alone is different from being lonely
We can all enjoy our own company
And bask in the beauty of fully accepting who we are
God never creates anyone that is useless
You’re exactly where you need to be

Just breathe…
