No One Is Alone

So Valentine's Day tends to also be known as Single Awareness Day. It's a day that celebrates love, usually the love shared between significant others. When you don't have a significant other you tend to feel left out of the festivities and alone in the world. But what we forget is that you are not the only one who feels this way. There are many people out there who do not have a significant other, or who have lost their significant other. We may not know who those people are but my guess is that they aren't hard to find if you open up your eyes and look around. 

I love this song from Into The Woods that talks about how no one is alone. We all have Giants in our lives that seem to be tormenting us. We all feel lost in the world occasionally. We all have been deceived at one time or another. We all have made mistakes in our lives. But the thing to remember is that you are the one who decides how you will react to these circumstances. You are alone in making those decisions but know that once you make that decision you will not stand alone in it. Others will be there to support you. God will always be there to support you. He never leaves you alone although you may feel alone. So even though Valentine's Day is another reminder of your marital status just remember you are not alone. 

I really like this quote from the Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson Manuel. "We will never be alone if we live as we should, because our Father will always be with us to bless us. H wants us to be successful. He wants us to be happy. He wants us to achieve the good goals we set. He will do His part if we do our part."

No One Is Alone
Into the Woods

No one here to guide you
Now you're on your own
Only me beside you
Still your not alone
No one is alone
No one is alone

Sometimes people leave you
Half-way through the wood
Others may deceive you
You decide whats good
You decide alone
But no one is alone

People make mistakes
Father's, Mother's
People make mistakes
Holding to their own
Thinking they're alone

Honor their mistakes
Everybody makes
One another's terrible mistakes

Witches can be right
Giants can be good
You decide whats right
You decide whats good
Just remember

Someone is on your side
Someone else is not
Well we're seeing our side
Maybe we forgot
They are not alone
Cause no one is alone

Hard to see the light now
Just don't let it go
Things will come out right now
We can make it so
Someone is on your side
No one is alone
