I have been feeling very lonely being home with just my two week old son while my husband is at work all day. I moved to a new area when i was eight months pregnant and don't know anyone here. My husband is my only connection to the area since he grew up here and has some friends around. So i have been feeling pretty lonely and slightly depressed with my new situation of being a mother and no real outside support.
When i told him of my loneliness and need for companionship, my husband reminded me that I need to confront my loneliness and remember that God is always with me. I do not have to entertain the loneliness because that is allowing doubts and fears in that should never enter in, and in turn allowing the enemy to get to me. Since my conversation with my husband i have felt a lot less lonely. I know that every time i feel alone i have someone to talk to.
I still don't have friends around for comfort but i know God is always there for me to listen to and comfort me. (Though i may still forget this at times when i am overwhelmed with being a new mother.)
How do you deal with loneliness?
