It‘s OK to be single and lonely (and life update)

It‘s OK to be single and lonely (and life update)

October 26, 2021

Damn, we've really given being single and lonely a bad rap. There's nothing wrong with being single; let's normalize that.

There's a lot of beauty and freedom in accepting your loneliness for what it is; an opportunity to deepen your relationship your yourself.

And I invite you to see it that way, too.

Be OK with being single. Enjoy your solitude and your singleness, even if you wish things were different.
