An important component beyond your emotional wounds and loneliness is the choice to connect with others. Next to connecting with God first, linking with other people who are concerned about moving forward in faith will do wonders for your own healing. Scripture exhorts us to fellowship with one another. As you build friendships with people who are in a similar journey and try to develop a deeper relationship with God, they're going to encourage and challenge you to grow and pursue a bright, purposeful future. Find those friends. Be willing to let them see who you really are, and hear who they really are. They're out there in many places! You only need to open your window.
"As iron sharpens iron, a friend sharpens a friend" (Proverbs 27:17).
