Question

Posted February 26, 2014

Hi everyone,

I’m eighteen years old and if the Lord would say yes I would love to have a Christ-centered marriage someday. I’m trying to spend my single years weeding out some ugly attitudes and habits that would make being a good help meet a lot harder. :/

Anyway, I’m very much a loner-type person, I love being alone, not because I don’t enjoy people but because I feel most relaxed by myself thinking, praying, etc. But it seems selfish to enjoy being alone so much.¬†Does anyone think that enjoying being alone is pure selfishness, if it is, what things could you do to overcome it?

BTW, I’m from a big family with many brothers and only one baby sister, so I guess that’s why I got to loving being alone so much, but maybe that’s not an excuse?

    There is a time and place to be alone and pray and think, there is nothing wrong with that. But if you are shy or unwilling to jump in and help at a church function for fear of being talked to, than yes, you need to step out of your comfort zone and learn to interact with others. Take little steps at a time. Find someone that needs help in the community that you live in and help them and ask them question. Come up with ten things that you want to ask them and do it! Then find someone else to help and ask them 20 question and keep going. Practice on your brothers, ask them ten question each every day. If you have a lot of brothers then this will take a while. You have such a sweet heart toward God, keep it! Shalom
