Are You Just Living In Your Own Little World?

What a question I ask this week. Perhaps this may seem a little weird and may appear to have nothing to do with well-being nor life but it is not like so. This past week I learned a news that leaves me grieving and it’s the loss of a loved one. Even though we are not related by blood, this family means so much to me because of all they have given to me and because of them, I am who I am and where I am today in life. I had no idea this family that I love so much had so much going on because I had been living in my own little world all this time, losing touch with them.

One of the biggest mistakes we make as human beings is getting so wrapped up in our own little world that we forget that other people also have their own world, filled with things going on. Even if you have a lot going on, it is crucial to your well-being to reach out to others, check up on others and share love. Whether you realize it or not, love is one of the greatest assets you have that you can share with others and the more you share, the more you will have. It is the one thing that I think most of us tend to take for granted and this is one crucial element to one’s well-being and to having a rich life.

It is normal that when you have so much going on to just live in your own little world, preoccupied with all that is going on with you. But I am here to say in today’s post that by living in your own little world, you are missing out on so much that is going on with others. I think with this post I can not stress enough how important it is to also make it a point to contact others, to reach out to others, to let others know how much you love them, how much they mean to you. It doesn’t matter how much you have going on, it doesn’t matter how much you have on your mind, don’t forget to spread some love and thought to others.

“How can I do this Aura when I truly have so much going on with me that I feel I don’t have enough for others?” you may ask. I truly understand that there are moments where it may be hard to even think of reaching out to others because you may truly have so much going on. However, this past week made me realize that by you getting so wrapped up in your own little world, it may just be too late to let someone know how much you love them. By living in your own little world, you disconnect from the world outside of you which is so vast. It is crucial no matter what is going on to share love and thought to others because life indeed is too fragile. We all in some way may have some sort of pain and that pain feels less when we reach out to others so in essence, you reaching out to others is so therapeutic as well. The world is so much more than just ourselves and when we realize that, the way we view life, the way we view others, the way we treat and interact with others will be different for the better.

Life is so much more beautiful when we share with others- share love, share compassion, share understanding, share thoughts. I guarantee you that by reaching out to others, by sharing love with others, by reminding others that they are in your thoughts, you will grow in well-being and happiness.

  1. Man being a social animal has to interact with others and understand their viewpoints, help them when help is needed and get some help in return with the thinking that we as humans cannot consider ourselves eternally complete. There is always something wanting in us which could be made good by others. For example husband and wife’s relations is an example of inter-dependence with each other. One is incomplete without other and just thinking of a couple trying to overact and becoming complacent, the results are disastrous for the family fabric as a whole.

    The last paragraph of your essay is really a truth in its entirety.

    Thanks and regards

    • I love how you said that “there is always something wanting in us which could be made good by others” because this is so true. You are right, we are social beings and it is so necessary for us to reach out to others. And I love your input in your last sentence. I think many disregard how important it is how they interact with one another when it comes to family because families do affect not just their loved ones but other people as well. Thank you so much for your comments and your view on all this! It is greatly appreciated!

  2. We all will find times where we fall short in staying in touch…for what ever reason…we will think of someone and then not contact them to say a simple hello, how are you,…life is short, we know not what blessings we will miss sometimes when we fail to reach out. Life changes always in mere moments, loss in seconds…wonderful message Aura!
