Loneliness Affects You

So many people struggle with this human condition. It affects everyone, from individuals who have no one to count on, to those who have suffered a terrible loss, to those who have been mistreated. However, loneliness also affects people who have a life partner, a dear friend, or a group they’ve been welcomed into. The condition of loneliness grabs hold of all hearts at some time or other.

Have you ever used check points? Do you know what they are? Check points are a great little tool that help you stay on track and not deviate from the central focus.
