Lonely is not the same as alone. If you're focused on your goals, not being with someone can be a blessing. There's no greater slap in the face to love than to not have time to be there for someone who is there for you. Even worse, trying to be there for someone when you have yet to get yourself ready for that responsibility. So when you wish or pray, also ask for the right "time" so you can enjoy what you asked for. In the meantime, you have PLENTY to do.
