Single: A bad word.

Okay, okay, okay… I’m going to say something, forgive me for saying it, BUT… 🗣 I’m single! I know, I know, I know… I just said, the “S” word! 😵 Get over it. I have, and I’m loving it! It’s actually not that bad! 🥰 *Currently ducking stones*

Now that I’ve gotten that out the way, hey friends! Come here, and pull up a chair… Whew Chile, I gotta vent! 📢 I can’t stand when a person says to someone else, “you’re too beautiful to be single.” As if being beautiful has ANYTHING to do with a person’s relationship status!

No wonder it’s slim pickings out here! This world is so shallow. Not only that, but what one person considers unattractive, another person may love it. AND whether one is considered to have the standard of beauty or not, that doesn’t mean people are standing in line to cuff them. We live in a time where people are lovers of themselves, a lot of people (not all) are all about what they can get from someone else without giving anything in return (okay, maybe the bare minimum), and if someone only gets with you because you’re beautiful, that won’t make them faithful, or even love you, because when the next person comes along who looks better than you, guess where that person’s going? (If they’re only with you for your looks… but the same thing can be said for people who only date people for their money etc.) 🤦🏾‍♀️

I hate it here. 😒 And another thing, why do so many people treat being single like it’s leprosy during the BC times? People be dang near ready to stone you to death, and they do with their words. They get their little judgmental, self righteous, microscope and tell you all the things THEY see wrong with you (which is really them projecting their insecurities and failures on you). Then they try to dissect your life and offer you their unsolicited advice about what you need to “fix” in order to get a spouse, as if being in a relationship or being married is a requirement to live.

No, some people are really out here trying to get their lives together, and they aren’t willing to compromise their healing, peace of mind, and growth, just to say they “got somebody.” Some people are single, because they are whole! Some people are single because they can actually live with themselves and the meaning of their life doesn’t revolve around being in a relationship or married. Single people, there is NOTHING wrong with you! Don’t allow anyone to make you feel like it is!

Some people just can’t see themselves outside of their boyfriend/girlfriend or husband/wife, and that’s their business… but don’t knock the people who are happily single, and working on themselves before throwing someone else into the mix of what they’re trying to work their way out of. Some people don’t want to get married right now, some don’t want to get married at all. I think people hype up marriage or “relationships” too much, when what they really need to be doing is seeking God first, working on becoming the best versions of themselves, and making sure they’re doing what God put them on this earth to do… Anyway, I could talk about this all day and night… but I feel better already! Good talk! 😁

But what do y’all think? Let me know in the comments…
