Loneliness is a subjective, unwelcome feeling of lack or loss of companionship. It happens when we have a mismatch between the quantity and quality of social relationships we have and those we want.
Black women suffer disproportionately from loneliness compared to non-minorities because we are bombarded with the pressure from others to value our strength over the need for self-care to preserve our social, economic, and/or professional status.
