Time Alone is Opportunity
So it’s not even their presence that determines whether or not you feel alone. It’s how you handle the struggle of raising them that determines that.
Sometimes we need to be alone physically so that we can get our heads around what we are trying to do at the moment. Even Jesus Himself needed time away from everyone so that He could truly talk to God and focus on the necessary. But there is one thing that Jesus did that sometimes we neglect to do. During those times that He retreated from everyone, He spent it talking to God. And then He listened.
So much of parenting seems to be done in the moment and then we are left with questions of whether or not we did it right! If we will take some time being alone in order to learn what parenting should look like, then we will spend much less time feeling as if we are alone in it.
