Aloneness Is An Opportunity

83 Flares 83 Flares ×

Most of us are terrified to be alone after a break-up, even the introverts among us. What we often fail to realize is that aloneness, (NOT loneliness), is an opportunity to really get to know ourselves – once we manage to disassociate ourselves from the false notion that being alone is for freaks.

Maybe that’s what we are so afraid of.

This quote reminds us of that opportunity, and also points out that in there lies the ultimate freedom to explore our own potential and desires.

What aloneness offers us – if we allow it – is a vast, untapped source of happiness that is waiting for us to be discovered.

In solitude and meditation, we find fullness, the joy of being, and unlimited overflowing love.

All we have to do is have a tiny little bit of courage… and just try it.

Your friend,

    Dear Eddie,

    I regard your actions on putting these advises as some sort of social service. Who knows how many souls around the globe you’ve helped from self sabotaging, suicides and etc.. May God repay your act of kind :)

    Not able to bring out something good from being alone.. some kind of inertia hold me back for hours.. and later the necessary routine job time demand you to move ..

    the thing which is unbearable is that all the time i am being aware that i am in a dead state even if there is possibility of a sparkling life.. feels terrible..

    He killed me twice by abondoning me killing myself everyday by doing the same..

    Three years ago the guy I thought I’d grow old with cheated and then broke up with me. For the first two months I was in pain. I thank you Eddie for carrying me through that. Your advice helped me more than anyone/anything. It’s been a long journey but I am a stronger person today. I’ve learned so much about life and being happy with yourself. Keep those emails and your website active. Thanks for what you’ve taught me!

    For most people, whether they really know it or not, being alone for a reasonable period after a break up brings with it an opportunity for introspection and to renew ourselves. Many people do get scared of silence around the house, especially if they’re used to seeing their partner alongside them in the evenings and expect to hear comments or responses from general conversation. But this is the time to think and get clarity around thoughts and feelings that were perhaps stymied by the constant “noise” of a relationship and mechanically doing all the 101 other things that we do when we’re together.

    In my particular case, aloneness gave me a great chance to clear things up in my own mind and helped me understand, respect and look forward to those moments that we all need to get our heads on straight and become a better person.
