Loneliness is sometimes a topic that is hard to bring up because it has more causes than solutions. In marriage it is a real thing, and it is more common than people think.
Loneliness is more than a feeling that lies on the surface of your life. It’s a profoundly distressing experience. Connected to both the quality and quantity of the relationships around you, it can also be confusing. You may wonder how you can be married to someone that you love and care about but still feel disconnected at the same time.
Fear is a natural human emotion. It has a biological purpose to enable us to perceive danger and make wise choices. But it creeps way beyond its healthy place and is wreaking havoc on marriages around the world today.
Fear is not always met with a rapid heartbeat and beads of sweat. It’s often the silent weight that you carry that keeps you behind, walking through life and marriage instead of leaping. Being stuck in the past, or overly concerned about the future limits how you can experience the present. Quite simply, fear steals your joy.
