As a spiritual advisor I receive more calls at this time of the year from people who are depressed and lonely, then any other time of the year. Many people have lost loved ones and pets and feel so isolated. They have nowhere to go and no one wants to spend time with them. Sometimes I’m the only person they have to talk to. So many feel suicidal because they feel their life has no meaning. I feel such compassion for these people because I know what it feels like not to have family. My family has all passed away and my friends are scattered all over the world. I’m thankful to be able to help people during this critical time.
