invitation for you to take some action and avoid a repeat in the
Loneliness around Christmas usually happens to people
who are lonely on other occasions through the year. It is worthwhile
to examine the reasons why it happens.
I am saying so because you
could manage to get through a lonely Christmas, heave a sigh of
relief and feel O.K. for six weeks. Then you will be faced with the
prospect of having a lonely Valentines Day. Another few weeks after
that is a lonely St. Patrick's Day, and a lonely Easter and so on
through the year until it is another lonely Christmas.
A lonely Christmas
does not happen every year for every lonely person, but it does
happen with quite some frequency for some people.
If it is happening frequently for you,
it is time for introspection. If things are wrong in your life
because family, relatives and friends do certain things you don't
like, it might be useful to ignore their actions.
Just examine your
role in the situation and change your actions for the better.
Hopefully everything else will improve on its own, in response to the
changes you have implemented.
If circumstances caused you to be lonely this Christmas, you have time to change your circumstances before the next Christmas rolls around.

Many women use
relationship-substitutes, such as knitting gifts for those who would
appreciate unique Christmas gifts, baking goodies for church. It is a
good technique where they put their goodness and love into objects
and send the objects away into the Universe. Men find things to fix
as a way to give away their love. They give love away to the Universe
and the Universe reflects love back to them. Love has a tendency to go
to the source of love.
