I understand that we are all human.
And I understand that it is in our nature to seek companionship.
We are young.
And there is so many opportunities to live a life of serving others while being single.
We spend so much time looking for another person.
Having the views of society forced down our throats - like a hook in the jaw of a fish.
We are constantly pushed in the direction of the current.
Sometimes it can just become TOO MUCH.
And we get lost..
Isn’t it strange that we always seem to feel so ‘alone?’
Isn’t it strange how we learn to ‘pretend?’
PRETEND. Like everything is okay.
(when we know it’s not)
Maybe the problem is that we spend SO much of our time looking for another person.
Making fictional lists of what will make us feel complete, all the characteristics of the perfect him… the perfect her.
Stressing over something that we can’t control.
Making sappy love songs…. depressing poems…. strangling yourself with your thoughts….
Worrying that you may never find anyone..
Asking yourself: “Will I be alone forever?” … “What does she have that I don’t?”
Saying things like: “I hate myself..”
How has that been working out for YOU?
We spend all our energy thinking of reasons why we aren’t good enough!!!!
That we forget to make a list of what we want to be FOR that special someone!
HECK, we worry about what is yet to come when we haven’t even worked on RIGHT NOW.
We haven’t taken the time to work on ourself.
You should be the most important person in YOUR LIFE.
Are we that mislead?
I mean.. singleness isn’t a disease that we can quickly cure.
It should be a gift.
A gift of freedom and independence..
A chance to serve others and build our own character.
(maybe once more?)
Doesn’t it feel good?
To just clear your head.
You should try it some more.
I should try it some more.
With so much… going on.
All the time.
Doesn’t it ever just feel good to do nothing?
Stop being so hard on yourself.
Come on, we all do it.
But it’s okay, because everything takes time.
And time is something we have.
