Product Description

Sometimes you just feel lonely ...

"Being lonely at times seems to be part of life," writes Mary Ellen Edmunds, "and even the friendliest and most outgoing of people experience those feelings. Being lonely isn't necessarily bad for you, but staying lonely is." With that idea in mind, Mary Ellen applies her trademark good cheer and careful thinking to the topic of loneliness, helping us understand that loneliness is painful but not terminal, that we don't have to be alone to be lonely, and that loneliness doesn't need to rule our lives.

This helpful little book is filled with strategies for dealing with loneliness, ideas for helping others who might be lonely, and gratitude for the blessings that can help us learn from our "alone times."
