Not Alone, Reason 183
Hi, this is Tamara, and when I feel despair in life, it gives me hope in knowing that I do not go at it alone; in fact, I am never alone! This is reason to fight onward with my fellow brothers and sisters!
No exceptions are given to anyone from the terrible suffering in which we all experience in our fallen world. However, there is comfort in knowing that we are never alone in whatever pains befall us.
Illusions of isolation and aloneness during our misery tend to heighten our despair, and thicken the dreadful sludge of gloom in which we must drag ourselves during these bleak times.
What I have learned through this affair called ‘life’ is that no matter what tragedies overshadow each of us, or burden our pace to that of a painfully, slow crawl, we can have the solace in knowing that others have endured these same struggles, both mentally and physically, as we do. We do not suffer alone!
Our feelings of loneliness, angst, and hopelessness are not signed over to each one of us exclusively. From the beginning of time and beyond, other have agonized, and still do, by the crushing weight of these very same tragedies. YAY!
(I mean “YAY!” in that we are not alone in our sufferings).
