Therapy Toronto Psychotherapy Definitions
- The experience of being single is most often seen by the individual as a crisis of being without a significant other.
The solution to loneliness appears to be a relationship, often resulting in hasty, unsatisfactory relationship choices that cause distress, disappointment and lowered self-esteem.
Paradoxically, more than simply longing for relationship, learning to be a successful single readies one for relationship and to develop the personal acumen to choose a partner wisely. Overcoming the various ways in which one feels inadequate as a single person opens the way to enhanced well-being and relationship, if and when one chooses to have one.
