When you feel unloved…


Cry.

Write.

Sing at the top of your lungs.

Drink tea.

Read the Bible.

“Cast your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.” – Psalm 55:22

Immerse yourself in the character traits of God.

Read as many devotionals as you can.

Find powerful blogs.

Laugh out loud, even if you don’t feel like it.

Cry more.

Text a friend about chili and smoothies.

Create a “Sad and Lonely” playlist. (Starfield, Jaci Velasquez, and Switchfoot, make it old school).

Write letters to people who have hurt you (with no intention of mailing them).

Obsess over tattoo ideas.

“Every lament is a love song.” -Switchfoot

Create something.

Sit in silence.

Clean your room.

Don’t blame other people for your emotions. Own them. It’s no one’s fault that you feel this way, it just is.

Read ridiculous books (like the Twenty-Sided Sorceress series).

“Come, Lord Jesus, come.”

Write letters to friends you miss or who have been going through a hard time.

Know that you are loved, even when you don’t feel like it. Emotions are valid. It’s okay to feel unloved, but recognize the truth: you are loved and valued. If the people around you aren’t showing it to you, that’s okay. Everyone’s busy and involved in their own lives. Just like you are. Truth trumps emotions. Every time.
