Does not having a spouse or significant other make you physically ill?

Loneliness is no joke. It can cause people to fall into a downward spiral of anxiety and depression, wondering when they'll find "the one" they're supposed to spend their life with. I, for one, am sick and tired of hearing about people being shamed for not having found that special someone just yet.


Tell your family it's time to stop badgering you about when you'll find that life partner. Self-love is to be mastered first. Finding your person can wait. It's important to heal all the inner-workings of your own psyche before adding a potential mate into the mix.
