Fullfilled or Less Lonely?- Reflections in the New Year



· 3 min read

That Time of The Year

Have you ever sat in a room with people laughing and enjoying themselves yet felt lonelier than ever? You couldn't connect with or relate to them and questioned why you were there.

Christmas is usually a time you spend with your family and friends. And as happy as it can be, sometimes it shows us that we are outgrowing certain relationships. Yet, it's a tough pill, so many of us turn a blind eye to it.

But we shouldn't.

This post will get you to reflect on relationships that take up most of your time

Questions to Ponder

  • Who are the people you spend your time talking to and sharing ideas?
  • Can you list who they are in the order of who you spend the most time with?
  • When do you usually reach out to connect with them?
  • What do you spend the time doing when you are together?

Fulfilled or Less Lonely?

You have heard the average of 5 people we spend time with, but I want you to dig deeper right now.

See, many times, we keep relationships going because they help us to feel less lonely. We hold on because when we are bored, they are there to allow us to feel less of that bad feeling.

But relationships are not meant to stop you from feeling the bad feelings. Relationships should bring out the best in you, motivate you, inspire, and challenge you to do great things. -at least if you want to continue growing.

So ask yourself, are the relationships you are holding on to doing this? Do you work together to do something remarkable? Or do you sit around and talk about people?

Creating Space for Fulfillment

See, if you keep these relationships that make you feel less lonely, you don't open the door for the ones that could be truly powerful. You don't create space in your life for people that could inspire you to do greatness.

Accepting the reality of these relationships that only make us feel less lonely is not easy. But it's the only way we can create space in our lives.

When you accept that a relationship is not fulfilling, you will feel less guilt when letting go of it. But that doesn't mean that it will be easy.

The challenge

As we start 2024, I challenge you to take some time to reflect truly on your close relationships. Ask yourself if they are filling you up, contributing positively to your life, and inspiring you to do greatness.

Be honest with yourself; if they aren't, create space for relationships that will do that and more.
