    Damn, we've really given being single and lonely a bad rap. There's nothing wrong with being single; let's normalize that. There's a lot of beauty and freedom in accepting your loneliness for what it is; an opportunity to deepen your relationship your yourself. And I invite you to see it that way, too. Be OK with being single. Enjoy your solitude and your singleness, even if you wish things were different.

      Sympathy Pains

      Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
