We are wise to give ourselves an emotional break. Time alone is essential, as it allows for soul searching, self -awareness, growth, and the many other factors that come to assist us in becoming more personally developed & accountable with our choices.
Example: It’s interesting how we allow ourselves to enter into new relationships (having just ended one a few weeks ago), expecting happiness to all of a sudden to become a reality. With no time off to examine/re-examine one’s own behavior or contribution to the demise – how can we not pick up where we just left off?
When emotions are in the lead role, we go where we want to go…often into the arms of those with whom we believe we can find happiness, comfort, etc. It can sometimes be difficult discerning our needs from our wants. If it feels good, then it must be the right thing to do – not always the healthiest of alternatives.
It’s difficult to establish healthy relationships when we’re overlooking the health of our own well-being. The soul needs a Higher rule of Authority for living and being. I believe this. This comes into view through an agreeable alliance with God, the One Who guards and directs our path with guidelines that teach us to establish boundaries for living.
This is no indication of a life without challenge, disappointment or mistakes – rather, one that assists us in maintaining an inner stability against the inevitable tides of living. Know what you believe and why you believe as you believe. We function from the foundation of our beliefs, whether healthy or unhealthy.
Additionally, time alone helps us to decipher and to put our priorities into order…giving our emotions a break.
The very principals, guidelines and insights that produce personal health and well-being, are the same ones that produce relational health and well-being.
Do you ever spend time alone? Is it beneficial?
