We all experience those dark days where we feel alone and unsure. We feel left out, disconnected, or just plain lonely.

But what if this feeling is just a matter of how we are looking at life?

Practicing mindfulness can greatly improve our ability to relate to others. That’s because by being mindful, we begin to see a powerful connection with the world. This, in turn, creates a dramatic shift in how we see life itself.

Through mindfulness, we realize that it’s all a matter of perspective. 

In truth, we are a part of a picture too big to comprehend. There is a great connection between all living things.  By being mindful, the ability to see this grows. As a result, the feeling of separateness greatly diminishes.

We see that we are not alone trying to survive.

Instead, we realize that we are a part of the vibrant cycle of life. We are all a part of a beautiful, connected universe. It’s not “us against the world.” It’s us as a part of the world.

Seeing this concept can be life changing.

The fear of being alone comes from being stuck in an “I” mentality. Being mindful holds with it the power to change this. With this insight, we can better see things from perspectives other than our own.

This is incredibly liberating in that it literally opens our lives up to the world as a whole.

It gives us the ability loosen our hold on ideas and beliefs about ourselves. We gain perspective. Relating to others becomes easier because we can better appreciate the perspectives of others.

Conflict lessens and tolerance grows.

We begin to become more forgiving of the imperfections of those around us . We are also able to find more positives in our relationships because we are less judgemental.

In closing this post, I want you to think about this…

There is no need to fear being alone in the world. Open your eyes and your heart to this amazing concept and you will see the world for what it is-a place in which we all belong.

We are all connected.

To your mindfulness,

Dr. Marchand
