Being Single is not a curse

14 September 2012, 15:15

Many women find it so difficult to be single and just be themselves, especially when they are growing older. The issue of settling down has made it so hard for most women to accept that they can be single and happy.

Whoever came up with the idea that women have a sell by date? This has made most women in their early, mid or late  thirties feel so desperate to the point of just settling for any guy that comes their way. How about you take that time as a single person to reflect on your career, find happiness within yourself and just be complete and content that Mr. Right is far much better than  Mr. Right now. Do not lose your values as a woman because everyone in your age group is married and has children. Remember not everyone in these marriages is happy and that the divorce rates are growing every single day.

For you to be happy with someone, you need to be happy as an individual, to be able to complement someone else, you need to be complete as a person. what better time to use than right now when you are single?  

Yes society has a way of putting pressure onto these young women; pressure from families and peers make it so hard to be in your thirties and be single no matter how successful you are. But remember its not a curse, he is out there just waiting for you to stop looking desperate and just be yourself. 

Mr. Right will not be found in the night clubs dear woman, he is where you least expect him to be, he could be your neighbor you so look down upon because he is not so handsome, you could be passing him in the street while you are driving to work.

I am not telling you who to date but the moment you become secure in your single-hood, you start noticing people that you wouldn't have. I am simply saying don't be in a rush to get a man in you life because you want to be happy. Be happy with yourself and then you can make someone else happy.
