Feeling Abandoned Quotes and Sayings
Quotes about Feeling Abandoned

Let these Quotes about Feeling Abandoned help you to distinguish between actual events and your feelings about those events. Children, the elderly, and those who are sick can be abandoned - and the results can be catastrophic. But reasonably healthy adults cannot be "abandoned." Romantic partners, friends, and family may choose to distance themselves from us, but we have not been "abandoned." We have ourselves, and we have the ability to form new relationships. Appreciate your feelings of loss and lack - but then move on to rebuild your life.

You have not been abandoned.
You are never alone, except by your own choice.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

In true friendship, one can express
anything and everything without feeling ashamed
or afraid of being rejected.
- Aparna Chatterjee

Not everyone is always going to like what you do.
Your job application, your book proposal,
your offer of marriage is going to
get rejected sometimes - perhaps often.
Your boss, your spouse, even the person
behind you in the supermarket checkout line
is occasionally going to think that you are doing it all wrong.
Don't take it personally.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

It is the first law of friendship
that it has to be cultivated.
The second is to be indulgent
when the first law is neglected.

Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

It has much more to do with one's self-esteem -
one's sense of inherent worth.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

When you cry and weep,

you are alone.
When you celebrate,
the whole existence participates with you.
Only in celebration
do we meet the ultimate, the eternal.
Only in celebration
do we go beyond the circle of birth and death.
- Osho

A brief sentence or phrase, often repeated -

of the author's original words, let alone his intentions.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

When you are alone you are not alone,
you are simply lonely -
and there is a tremendous difference
between loneliness and aloneness.
When you are lonely you are thinking of the other,
you are missing the other.
Loneliness is a negative state.
You are feeling that it would have been
better if the other were there -
your friend, your wife, your mother,
your beloved, your husband.
It would have been good if the other
were there, but the other is not.
Loneliness is absence of the other.
Aloneness is the presence of oneself.
Aloneness is very positive.
It is a presence, overflowing presence.
You are so full of presence
that you can fill the whole universe
with your presence and there is no need for anybody.
- Osho

I have never found a companion that was
so companionable as solitude.
We are for the most part more lonely
when we go abroad among men

A man thinking or working is always alone,
let him be where he will.
- Henry David Thoreau

First meditate, be blissful,
then much love will happen of its own accord.
Then being with others is beautiful
and being alone is also beautiful.
Then it is simple, too.
You dont depend on others
and you dont make others dependent on you.
- Osho

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy
is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet,
alone with the heavens, nature and God.
Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be.

What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us;
what we have done for others and the world
remains and is immortal.

The happiness of one's own heart alone
cannot satisfy the soul;
one must try to include,
as necessary to one's own happiness,
the happiness of others.

Deep in my heart I'm concealing things
that I'm longing to say.
Scared to confess what I'm feeling -
frightened you'll slip away.

and the feeling of being unloved.

Are you feeling stressed and upset?
If so, you are worrying about tomorrow.
Events that have already occurred may cause you regret,

that already happened.
You are worrying about paying your bills and finding a new job.
Those are worries about tomorrow.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

only by the intellect.
The judgment of the intellect

is like going to a restaurant,
ordering everything on the menu,
and complaining about indigestion.

We should not pretend to understand
the world only by the intellect;
we apprehend it just as much by feeling.
Therefore, the judgment of the intellect is,
at best, only the half of truth, and must, if it be honest,
also come to an understanding of its inadequacy.
- Carl Jung

the thing that we fear grows stronger.
