WE'RE FAMILY

When you're single, it can be easy to slip into feeling sorry for yourself, especially when just about everyone you know is married, and you don't have family that's close, or someone special in your life. It hasn't always been easy for me. During holidays, I've had awkward dinners with people I hardly knew, spent time with families who were so close I wound up feeling even more alone. I've even spent a few holidays by myself.

But these days I feel good about the holidays. I'm no longer so concerned about how I spend them, or with whom. And I feel really comfortable being single, even with the proliferation of messages people get today that imply being married—especially married with kids—is somehow better.
