Lonely: is lonely a judgment?

.

.

Lonely can be a judgment. I have friends that seem to have it made, big house, nice car, money, career, etc.

They still feel lonely, emotionally unfulfilled, Lacking.

In many situations, not all, we compare our lives with others.

We may want the status and security of an executive career, that big house, country club membership or athletic skills to dominate our group.

Loneliness is a judgment in this situation. If we judge our world by what we lack, suffering will always be our partner.

Loneliness will become real.

All we have is this mundane moment. Think about that!

Nothing we can achieve or attain in the future will bring lasting happiness.

We can be happy right now, just as we are.

Happiness is a peaceful, internal way of being, living in the moment.

Equanimity is what the Buddhist label it.

Just think, we have the ability to shower ourselves with kindness.

  1. In the past I thought my unworthiness nullified my chance of being happy.

    Being unworthy, perceiving unworthy, sentenced me to a good piece of loneliness.

    Shame lives at our core and it feels like nothing can change it

    This is a lonely place

  2. This is so true and you have written it nicely! 😊

  3. Thank you
