Can Therapy Help Loneliness?

Honestly, I feel kind of funny anytime I talk about this or am actually honest about my feelings regarding this issue. I think it is partly because people tend to give me the “love yourself,” “you never know when the perfect guy is coming,” “it just isn’t your time yet” speech which inevitably makes me feel like my feelings are invalid.

My Abusive Ex-Husband Has Changed

I recently started dating someone and that is when...
