Loneliness during the holidays can cause sadness and depression. Start planning your events to prevent holiday loneliness.
According to Psychology Today, about one out of four households in America is a single person. Many people live alone and many of them equate living alone with being lonely. Some single people think, there must be something wrong with me that I don't have a partner.
First, being single is not a disease. It's often a choice sometimes a better choice than being with someone you don't want to be with. If being single were a defect and a sign that you are inferior, then you would have to think that every person who is married was once defective. They became worthwhile when they married another defective (single) person. Absurd! People are people not defects. Being single is a situation, not a moral failure. Your mother and father were once single.
