I’ll be honest with you, this post you are about to read was not the original one I shared under this title. I did not take it down because I believed it was wrong or incorrect in content, but it was a misleading title. It was more about planning for not being single rather than actually focusing in on being single.
People ask me often if I am dating anyone or when I am going to settle down. I know it is coming from a kind place but the moment I start pointing the attention back on their marriage or relationship, the tone of the conversation usually turns rather quickly.
I think so many people have this idea that being married or being in a relationship is the goal for all single people and that we all need to escape singleness. I cannot speak for others but for me, it’s not. Believe me, if there is someone who actually manages to spark my interest, sure I will pursue it but guess what, my life does not lose value if it does not work out and I remain single. This is what I hope people can take from reading this.
The value I have for my life and what I chose to focus on is not dependant upon if I am single or married. My mission stays the same and if I happen to partner up with someone that shares my passion for the mission I am on, then great and we can focus on that mission together. If that does not happen, I am still me, I still aim to love and serve God, I will still serve people, and keep on with my work I believe I am called to do. Singleness is not a curse, it’s a gift.
Talk soon & God bless,
