That's the reason you're here anyway, right?
I went through a lonely period... well several, but this one period in particular was right before I met my husband. I was surrounded by family and friends, yet lonely. It was during that time when I met two of the MOST IMPORTANT people in my life.... JESUS and me. He isolated me intentionally. He wanted one-on-one time with me but before I had been too preoccupied. During that time I learned how to spend time alone and enjoy my own company. Movie dates...alone. Eating out...alone. In my room, windows up, listening to music... alone. Walks in the park... alone. Reading my bible, alone. I was fine with spending time with me...finally. God needed me to know Him and myself before adding anyone else to the equation. I learned that I avoided time alone because it left me stuck dealing with my own personal issues but it allowed God to work on me and I am better because of it.
You can spend your life attempting to make everyone around you happy. You can try so hard to turn yourself down so that others are comfortable in their own mediocrity. You've been called out...called forth. You have been chosen to be great.
1 Peter 2:9 (GW)
However, you are chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, people who belong to God. You were chosen to tell about the excellent qualities of God, who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light
So regardless of whose light is dim, TURN UP! Be who you have been called to be. Shine. We get one earthly life, so live it in a way the God and you can be proud of. People will never be satisfied anyway. Your greatness should make such an impact that you cause changes in others. Just live OUT LOUD!
