I try to be a “glass half full” kind of person but I’ve discovered a “half empty” trend in my life that needs to change in 2021. It seems that Sundays through Fridays are mostly good, but on Saturdays I feel lonely. Just thinking out loud (or on the keyboard), I wonder if it has anything to do with the social norms of Friday and Saturday being weekends, and that’s usually when people go out to do things like dinner, events, etc.
To be completely transparent as I (don’t) like do sometimes, this loneliness showed up again last weekend. It was triggered by one thing not going the way I suspected on Friday and my confidence and mood shifted for the rest of the weekend.
Deep down, I know I’m not truly alone because God says in the Bible that He will never leave us, but even with that and my two dogs, I felt isolated and lonely. Part of it is coming from a place of rejection as I try to navigate the dating world. Also it being winter doesn’t really help. I need some sunshine and 80-degree days.
Why is it that Saturdays are typically the day when this happens?
I believe my future is bright, but sometimes it’s just a little too cloudy for my liking.
