BlogHer: Single & Over 40: Holiday Self-Esteem Survival Tips

“In the perfect world, we are all in shape, well off and have easy
relationships with family and friends. But this is the real world,

since they think you’re so great, you’re alone (or not with a great
love) on the holidays, or, even worse, convinced that they have an easy
solution to your problem that you must urgently follow, like moving to
Sitka, Alaska because there are more  men there than in San
Francisco, or growing 5 inches and losing 50 pounds.”
