Do you beat yourself up? Do you attach a judgement to a feeling? In this episode Sara points out that there is nothing wrong with loneliness...even partnered and married people feel lonely too. It's when you attach something to it that makes it worse, like "I'm lonely, so I must be a loser". That's easy to do when you've been single for a really, really, long time. Single girls, this one's for you. It's Not You. It's just life, happening for you.
