I’m sure I’m not alone on this one when I say we sometimes need someone else to bring us back to reality and point out the obvious. And for the most part, it’s usually not what we want to hear but we have to hear it anyway. Other times, it may be “YES! I feel the same way!” and think to ourselves, “God, I’m so glad I’m not alone on this one.” You know you’ve been there at one point or another, so don’t try to state otherwise.
For us girls still trying to survive in this crazy part of the world called~ the dating scene, I’m sure you can feel my pain when I speak of this. And I also know you feel my pain when your now married friends or people who you associate with and they are “taken” say to you, “Oh it will happen someday.” In this type of situation, I want to say to these people, “Listen. You were once me. And yes I know it will happen. But right now, I need you to just listen and be. Let me vent. Let me get it off my chest and then you can bring me back to reality.” Bitchy? Maybe. But for me that’s my way of bring them back to reality.
Today I was sent this link to a fabulously written essay on how we, us ‘single’ folk, may sometimes act~ whether we know it or not. I cannot even begin to explain on how I feel like this post was written for me and the many other girls out there who are in the same situation. She’s blunt, honest, and real. And ladies, we all need someone like this in our life. Luckily for me, I have my sister and my 2 best friends, whom I’ve known since the days of scrunchies and no cell phones, who will always be those people. But sometimes it can be done by a stranger, in writing, for us to always have as a reminder. Permanent. Never going away.
If you need to print out and reread this a few times, do it! If you need to read it daily until you get “out of the basement”, do it!
Once you are ready, you will realize “Your capacity to love is so great that it will carry you through most things in this world that we live in.”
