First thing's first, don't think I will type something every day, I won't.
Secondly, apparently some folks think I am not happy. That is totally not the case. I know I did at one point in my post last night refer to this point in my life as a "season of sadness". I did not mean necessarily mean I am sad and you should feel sorry for me (or offer up your advice on finding a man).
This year has sucked. And it has nothing to do with a man.
I am content as I am. It took me 30 years to like myself and the person I am and I will not start feeling sorry for myself again.
Yes, there are times it would be nice to have a man. It would be nice to have a relationship, someone to spend time with, and someone to share life with. However, I know what I want. I know what I don't. And I know what I will not settle for.
I will not settle for less than what I want or less than what I deserve. I would rather be alone and unhappy than in a relationship and miserable.
I hate to see friends (and even people I don't consider friends) jumping from relationship to relationship. In my humble opinion that is a weak person. I know that isn't a popular opinion (and one that might offend someone reading this. Sorry not sorry), but I believe this.
I spend a lot of years jumping in and out of relationships in my early 20's. I dated a lot as well. The seasons of singleness where the times I grew and learned about myself. Those are the times I found out who I was and what I wanted.
So please, dear friends, strangers and whoever you are.... please don't feel sorry for me. Please do not think I am a sad, hopeless, single girl.
I am a happy, well adjusted, slightly crazy, single girl.
