How I Made Peace With Being Single (Even Though I Don't Want to Be Single)
Can you relate to that? Have you watched everyone you know get married (maybe even twice!) while you feel completely left behind?
I get it. Today, I love my life. I would prefer to be married, but I feel happy, content, and peaceful.
But we’ll get to that in a minute….
I’ve always wanted to be married and have a family. My biggest fear in my 30’s was that I’d still be single at 40.
Well, I passed 40 several years ago, and I am still single.
I’ve struggled with my singleness a lot over the past 20 years. I went through periods where I was okay with being single, and I went through many more times where I wondered what was wrong with me and if I’d ever find my soulmate.
When you're single in your 20's, it can be lonely.
Single in your 30's - aggravating.
But, single when you're over 40 - that can be scary.
I would much rather be married and be a stepmom than be single!
However, I would rather be single and happy than be in an unhappy relationship.
I can’t tell you how to find your soulmate….clearly, I don’t know anything about that! There are plenty of great books and programs out there to help you find your ideal partner.
What I CAN help you with is how to be happy until you find that person, and to be happy and content even if he never shows up.
Wouldn’t it be nice to not obsess every day over relationships?
Wouldn’t it be refreshing to feel okay with what is while you’re on the way to what you want?
I can help you enjoy the life you have NOW until your soulmate arrives - that's the One-Derful Life.
Today, I am able to enjoy the good things in my life and to appreciate where I am and how I got here.
I don’t get depressed when I don’t have a date on Saturday night, and I don’t sit on the couch and self-soothe with ice cream on Valentine’s Day.
I am happy, content, and peaceful – I'm living a One-Derful Life.
