I’ve dated several guys and was even in a really good, steady relationship for three years when I was a teenager, but, other than that, I have been single my entire adult life. I have spent many moments, hating it, wishing desperately I could find a partner, someone I can share the rest of my life with. But, suddenly, within the past few days, something inside of me shifted. I am now asking myself, “Why should I constantly be looking at my life as half empty just because I’m single? Why should that get me down?” Why should my singleness hold me back and prevent me from living the life of my dreams?”
It’s taken me a heck of a long time to get to this point in my life, but finally, I’ve decided to just let go, embrace myself and embrace life. That’s not to say I’m not open to romance. I most definitely am, but it will happen when it’s meant to happen. Of course, when I meet a really nice guy, I will take a chance on him. Meanwhile, I am single, happy and free!
Since ‘singleness’ has been on my heart for a long time, I finally wrote an article about it: 10 Ways You Can Find Happiness and Fulfillment as a Single Woman.
Number 1: Let go and let God.
So, you’re in your thirties and still single! That’s not a negative reflection on you. There will be days you will pine for a partner, days where you feel pangs of loneliness and dissatisfaction when you see happy couples strolling along the streets past you. Though, here’s the thing: Not everyone is meant to find a partner at a young age. It’s unexplainable, but that’s just how life works. Let it go and leave it in God’s Hands because only He knows what’s best for you. Don’t live your life depressed just because you don’t have a partner. Rather, embrace all the freedom that singleness brings. If you do this, you will release yourself from stress and depression, the two biggest crutches that will hold you back in life.
