Loneliest Time of the Year

The Christmas season and New Years are the loneliest times of the year. Memories of times and people past trigger a melancholy that is hard to bear. You don’t have to be alone to be lonely, but if you are alone…more than likely you are the loneliest of all this time of year.

Maybe, you know someone who has recently lost a loved one. Maybe, that someone is you. In either case, do something to push the loneliness back; call or visit someone who is alone and perhaps lonely. Include them in your day.

If you are the one who is lonely, reach out, as hard as that might be, to someone; a church, a neighbor, distant family…someone. No one should be alone or lonely, especially at Christmas.
