In my private psychotherapy practice I often hear from clients about their fears of being alone. From my vantage point, I can see how those fears keep them stuck in unfulfilling relationships, prevent them from speaking the truth of what they need or want, and can ultimately lead to the feelings of impotence, powerlessness, or depression that often accompany not being seen or honored in relationship.

Being alone hasĀ it’s own challenges, just like being stuck in unsatisfying relationships does. In this video I discovered several years back, the brave poet/singer/songwriter Tanya Davis addresses some of the realities of living alone and offers insight on how to navigate singelehood.
