As a teen I had just left school and became fascinated with my guardian angel. I would talk to 'Him' all the time and sometimes it would seem to others that I was even laughing to myself. So I had just left school and did not have a full certificate of subjects, so I begun to work with someone making pies to sell while getting the necessary passes I needed, one day I told him about my guardian angel and he told me to be careful that I was not harboring an evil spirit so it played with me for a while. My angel however tried to reassure me that He wasn't. Eventually I told him to leave me alone and all of a sudden I felt alone in the world
It was a loneliness I hope none experiences, you feel are cut off, afraid. Eventually the pain and isolation from Him was too much and I asked Him to come back and He did and I apologized to Him and He said, 'But I never left you I could never leave you.' If your angel really left you imagine how you would feel I fear that you would be better off dead.
