Single for the Holidays

Monday, 18 November 2013 22:23  by Jessica W.

According to the Census Bureau, singles are the fastest growing population demographic in the U.S. Many women prefer to find fulfillment alone rather than to experience the anxiety and depression that can accompany an unhealthy relationship. Remaining single is a choice that an increasing number of women are finding themselves satisfied with. However, this choice is not without its bumps around the holidays.

Singledom allows women to explore themselves as independent individuals rather than someone defined by the relationship they are in. This choice is a good option for many women seeking to discover and love themselves before entering a relationship with another. It can also be a permanent choice. However, media messages frequently portray coupledom as the only path to happiness, which can make explaining singlehood to others, or even oneself, difficult.

In the case of single women with emotional breakage, feelings of low self-worth and self-esteem often contribute to loneliness around the holidays. Robbed of an external point of validation, women often fail to find worthiness within themselves. Brookhaven Retreat teaches women to open themselves to vulnerability, to open their hearts to worthiness and realize that they are deserving of love and belonging. Often, the need for external validation disappears.

In choosing to be alone, women allow themselves to develop into their best self. They become free to explore their dreams in life, to be as creative as they like and take a journey of discovery unrestricted.

Brookhaven Retreat helps women cultivate self-worth, develop a diversified support system and master the tools necessary to successfully manage the holidays alone. While singleness may be difficult this time of year, women who find validation within better celebrate the season free from depression or anxiety.
