“Learn your way around loneliness. Make a map of it. Sit with it, for once in your life. Welcome to the human experience. But never again use another person’s body or emotions as a scratching post for your own unfulfilled life.” Elizabeth Gilbert

Loneliness can be a curse or a blessing..depending on your perspective. I always say to those close to me:

I would much rather be single and alone than with the wrong person and lonely.

Loneliness can cause people to do crazy things: Such as staying in an unhealthy or unfulfillable relationship. Can spur a person to take on risky types of behaviors.  Sometimes dangerous.

Don’t let yourself get into this “habit”

Take heed of life..savor the day. Don’t give in to that darkness which can at times creep up on the best of us.

Don’t allow yourself to be a scratching post for others and don’t use others for your own personal gain.
