When we are comfortable standing alone people will approach us to know the secret of our success. But when we are not comfortable standing alone we feel depressed and we seek answers. Depression has a tendency to isolate us from the world and if we’ve ever realised, the more we isolate ourselves the more we are depressed. This is because we are a social animal and crave for company.
Sorrow is an indispensable part of life; we cannot avoid it but we can and should try to overcome the after-effects of sorrow: loneliness and depression. To get rid of depression we need to inculcate in us ‘realisation’- realisation that loneliness will intensify the dismal situation. When we are depressed nothing seems right for us. However hard we try we even fail to keep busy with our personal interests and hobbies. But trying to take that leap is no harm. Having a friendly chat may not wipeout our depression completely but will definitely change the environment to help us conquer our mind that is down in the dumps and give us the needed strength to accept our situation.
The most winning solution to our current problem is conversing with people who are in the same state of mind. This will help us realise that everyone, rich or poor, old or young, have to face life’s trials. Therefore whenever we encounter a difficult situation we should always look at the more deprived and thank God that we are in a much better position than them. This will facilitate us to learn and strive against all odds. “Never feel sad that you do not have a pair of shoes because there are people who do not have legs”.
Life and time does not wait for our depression to subside. Hence the solutions to our problems lie within us. It is the inspirational food we give to our mind that we and we alone can get rid of our negative energies. Philosophical books or advice from the wise do play its part sometimes. But ultimately the solution is how and when we implement it and are we really prepared to implement it!
We’re creations of the same Creator as you (The Supreme Power). We’ve seen good days and bad days. We’ve also survived through hard times. What we’ve realised is that happiness and sorrow are relative terms. It all depends on our Will- Our willingness to feel happy or willingness to grief! Speak well and you will never hear foul language! See good and you will be surrounded by good! Hear good and you will be rewarded back with good thoughts! So just feel good and ignore the bad!

The first line of your post – ‘When we are comfortable standing alone people will approach us to know the secret of our success’ – really struck home with me and put into words something I’ve often wondered about. Many times in my life complete strangers have struck up conversations with me and told me things that they said they have never talked to anyone about before. And this happens most when I am most at peace with myself. I’ve always felt it was God using me to somehow offer comfort to someone hurting or seeking some answer but it’s always left me feeling a bit “why me-ish”……. I was inspired by the entire post, but this particular line is a confirmation I’ve been looking for that at those times in my life, which I can pinpoint, I was on the right track and even without this confirmation I feel myself being transpired back to. Once I’m there again – never will I roam. Thank you for this post!
Thank you so much for stopping by and reading the post. We are glad and honoured that you were inspired. There are many things in life which we often miss out, those small bits of thoughts that just cross our mind and we seem to ignore. But those are the words of our conscience and should forever be treasured. We are making small efforts and taking small leaps to capture those thoughts in our words. Your blog as well looks very inspiring and motivating. Your tagline “Enjoying every moment” is all we need to be doing. 🙂

It happened again! Yesterday as I was out shopping, I stopped to look at something and my granddaughter and daughter went on ahead of me. As I turned to follow them I saw my granddaughter at the end of the aisle directing traffic. There was only one elderly man between me and her and he made the comment as he and I both approached her at the same moment that one day she was going to be an airline traffic director. She was shy so we smiled at him and went on our way. He sought us out and stopped us to talk about how his father had been raised in the Great Depression era, had only had an 8th grade education but worked to provide not only physical needs for his family but educational ones as well. As a result, which I have summed up into these few words, the old man said he had gone on to be first a pilot in the Air Force but later an airline pilot as well. Simply put, he was hungry to talk about his Dad and what a wonderful inspiration that he had been. I could tell the conversation made his day and I couldn’t help but think again of your comment about being comfortable standing alone. Just wanted to share with you again that those comments reminded me to be comfortable as such and automatically it happened again. I am so very thankful.
It gives us great pleasure to know this. What matters are the small things in life, every moment is precious. We tend to look too much ahead in life which lands us in expecting too much. If those expectations are not met, we get depressed. People have suffered for years from depression, due to innumerable reasons. But what matters is the attitude towards life. The same situation can be perceived in different ways. 🙂
I have never thought of a thing like that – being comfortable standing alone. Do you mean that when we get famous, we will be lonely but we will be comfortable in our loneliness ?
To be alone and feel lonely are two different perspectives. We all wish to be left alone sometimes. Right? That is the time when we let our thoughts have a free flow. And that is the moment when we want to feel what we actually are. On the other hand feeling lonely depends upon our attitude. We will never feel lonely if we do not allow us to feel so! Expectations make us feel inferior and lonely. No one makes us feel so. So when we feel lonely we must reach out to the world and try to give company to someone who is feeling the same, maybe. Hope we could answer your question. 🙂
Yes. Thank you. Your reply is a post in itself.
By the way how do you add smileys to your replies ?
