Johnathan Reynolds recently opened up about his feelings of loneliness to avoid falling victim to an unhealthy cycle in his life where he makes choices that produce detrimental results.
“I could be around a lot of people but still sometimes loneliness sets in when you don’t have anybody to come home to and share that with. In those moments of loneliness that’s when a cycle can definitely start,” he said. “You start seeing things repeated, the same mistakes being made over and over [because of] that loneliness.”
In those moments it can seem easy to give into thoughts like “maybe I should hang out with this person, maybe I should buy that, [or] maybe I should go this place.”
While many people his age can vent about their frustrations on social media, McReynolds’ life as a celebrity and professor does not afford him the same opportunity. Instead, he brings those conversations to God.
“All of those things that I want to say on Facebook and I know I can’t, I say to God. And sometimes it turns into a song,” he told CP. “‘Cycles might have been one of those songs.”
