Do you have a fear of being alone that is holding you captive, by your own choice, in a relationship that is less than fulfilling? Perhaps you’re alone and feel like there is something wrong with you. If you think you don’t deserve anything better than what you are currently experiencing, you’re in the company of countless women across the world. In fact, the “What if I am alone forever” question is pretty common, especially among women.
Don’t be afraid to take the steps necessary to achieving what you want simply because you think you might make a mistake that will lead to your being alone forever. You may have convinced yourself that it is better to experience all of the pain you’re feeling than it is to be alone- that’s just not so. Can you relate to any of the following thoughts:
- Feeling as though it is better to stay in the unhappy relationship you are in because at least you have someone, which is better than having no one.
- Feeling like you have to go from one relationship right into the next so you don’t have to feel that fear of being alone.
- Perhaps you have recently made the decision to leave an unfulfilling situation and are not beating yourself up and living in constant fear. You may even be feeling like there is something wrong with you- don’t believe the lies.
- You keep telling yourself that you’re not enough on your own and that you need to be with someone to be complete.
Feeling as though you have to be in a relationship, or jumping into a new relationship if you are getting out of one merely to avoid or escape the fear of being alone will not make life better. Focusing on getting into a relationship or remaining in an unfulfilling relationship rather than focusing on the quality of the relationship will do more harm than good in the long run.
