This week is going to be particularly tough for many, even if we were not in a pandemic. Loneliness can be a terrible feeling at times, which tends to be heightened during the holiday period and it’s something everyone has to deal with at some points in their lives being social animals.
So how do you gently own and process your loneliness to give it compassion, rather than get stuck in it?
