Have you ever wondered why you’re still single?
Being on your own is a unique journey!
It’s one we should cherish, but unfortunately, most of us try to end it before it can even begin. Let’s face it, we don’t like being alone! In a culture that favors couple-dom, living without a partner can sometimes leave us feeling out of sync with society or “less than” – maybe even unworthy of love.
After trying what feels like everything, perhaps you wonder: What’s wrong with me? Why is love so hard to find? Or keep?
I’m here to tell you that NOTHING is wrong. Instead, being on your own is a unique opportunity to explore who you are as an individual – if you choose to take the challenge. If you dare to accept time periods alone, no matter how long or short, there are some pretty sweet and valuable lessons to learn about life, about others, and about yourself that can only take place in the time between relationships.
the love you’re looking for had already found you?
The greatest gift we can give ourselves in this life is to prioritize our self-worth, self-love, self-care, and self-discovery – to learn to esteem ourselves highly and to recognize our beauty on our own terms – all things that lead to better, stronger, more fulfilling relationships in the long run. At least I want to believe that…
The biggest surprise on this journey of life is that after spending all those years trying to “grow up,” I finally discovered that the one thing I long for more than anything is the freedom and authenticity of the girl I once was. I find myself looking for her everywhere I go. I think she is the love I hope to one day find.
I certainly don’t have all the answers, but I do have a lot of questions. I wonder about love and what it really means. I wonder about where I’m going and who I’ll be with along the way. I wonder what to focus my energy on and what will make the most difference in the end. That’s why I’m asking questions here and exploring the answers. That’s what this blog is all about. I’m simply on this journey like everyone else, trying to figure things out along the way. I hope you’ll join me.
