Lacking a close romantic relationship when one is desired taps into core human fears of rejection and isolation. Connection, understanding, sharing, all of the things that can make successful relationships so fulfilling can bury the individual under a mountain of dread when an unsuccessful relationship or period of loneliness convinces them that maybe finding a partner just isn't in the cards. This week, Emmalee and Jen are joined by fellow LMFT Mary Chen to discuss the healthy way to confront your fear of going through life without a partner and how your misconceptions of "the one" might be getting in the way of your own fulfillment.
