Q: I’m a 39 year old male from the UK who has never really had a break with women. In fact, the last girlfriend I had was when I was 23. I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s just not meant to be after my lack of any relationship took me down the path of a suicide attempt and complete breakdown back in 2012. I got counseling for this in 2013 and have been getting by ever since on my own but being single still hurts me nearly every day. I’m worried that it may drive me back towards how I felt in 2012 and having seen some of your videos, you give some really good advice. Could you please give me some pointers on how I might alter my approach to understanding that I won’t meet anyone and have to deal with that, so that I might come to terms with the situation? Most people tell me it’ll happen eventually but it’s now been 16 years that I’ve been single and I would rather just learn how to come to terms with it.
A: First, I honor you for going to therapy and getting the help needed to keep yourself safe. Other people’s opinions can be a lot. While all of that energy is focused on you, just return it to sender with a blessing of consciousness.
