I am more than just single.
I want to share something from my heart:
Many people close to me misunderstand and are unaware how certain comments can make singles feel ashamed. I know they think they are comforting by expressing their concern. Only you are throwing us under negativity and pressure. It’s making me feel guilty. Your “vote of confidence” is unwarranted.
I have accomplished so much in life and choose each day to keep living. That, in itself, is a huge accomplishment. I don’t need to sleep with insecurity, shame, and worthlessness bruising my heart. Why not look at the goals I have achieved. Yet, all you see is my Singleness and why my right finger isn’t occupied with a ring. There is more to me then my looks, my body, my status, and my finger.
Marriage is beautiful. A blessing I can’t wait to receive. Love is a gift I can’t wait to unravel. But I am not incomplete without it. I am whole. Thank you for concern. I have managed this temporary season thus far. I will blossom when the time is right. I am not living by your timeline.
Do heed this advice. Thank you!
