Are you ashamed of your singlehood?

Are you ashamed of your singlehood?

 

I spoke to a friend recently who has been single for quite some time now. I clearly remember her telling me “I’d rather be dead than to admit to people that I’m single.” Well, this friend of mine spends most of her time on dating sites. And being in her 30s while most of her friends are either married or dating, she finds hard to come to terms with her singlehood.

 

Also she is ashamed to admit the fact that she wants to get married as soon as possible and thought people would think of her being regressive. And to be honest, I could understand the situation, for few years’ back I was going through the same phase. I also understand that people who would make fun of her would never stay by her side, take care of her when she is sick or perhaps not even give a shoulder to cry on when she is down on dumps. And you’ve got to agree, no matter how many friendship quotes we read on Facebook and magazines, finding a good friend in today’s world can be daunting. And the social stigma she feels attached to being single is inexplicable.

 

But why worry how people around are judging you? Why do people’s perceptions make us feel happy, embarrassed or regressive? And also we share our life stories to these same people. Be it a wardrobe malfunction or those break up stories. When there is no trace of embarrassment then, then why care now? It is lame when we let others decide for us and judge us.

 

It is not always a man in your life who can complete you. Being complete in yourself is a great achievement. Taking charge of your life and admitting the fact that you still haven’t found the perfect person for yourself is a thumbs up for me. It’s about finding happiness, no matter where it comes from. That is what is more important, than people’s approval or judgment.

 

And when the right time comes, you will find the right man. Hurrying into a relationship might leave you heartbroken. So never be ashamed to admit who you are!

 

Reasons why someone wants to be you!

Bingo3XAre you one of those people who keep wishing they were someone else? People who are in awe of someone else’s life and so busy doing that that they forget to appreciate their own life. If actually you fall in any such category, it is time that you realise how much better you are that the person sitting next to you or the one you are in awe of.

There are people who are waiting and wanting to be you. So love yourself, be who you are and feel positive. Life is all about looking up and looking ahead, there’s no looking back. Never! Here are some reasons why someone wishes he could be you, while you are ignoring yourself.

You can read this

You are educated enough to read this! Education is one of the best things to happen to humans and precisely this is the reason which puts humans in a better category. Do you even know that there are about 774 million people in this world who don’t know how to read or write. These people are looking up to you, these people want to be you. Be happy that you are at a better position today.

You are healthy

The very fact that you can read this says that you are pretty healthy. You can sit, your brain lets you connect to the internet and read good things about yourself. You can see this world and feel its beauty. There are a lot of people for whom this everyday activity of yours might be a once in a lifetime dream.

You can choose

To choose is one of the biggest freedoms of all times and you have that freedom. You know what you like, you have options and you are choosing to play bingo or read this at the moment. Remember, not everyone has these choices in life.

You still have a chance

Even if you might have failed some goals, you might not have been able to achieve some of the things you had planned to achieve, but the very fact that you can read, write, you are healthy – all state that you have a chance. You have a chance to prove yourself, to live life, to love life, to love yourself.

So next time, you think you were someone else, kick the thought. Look at yourself in the mirror and blow yourself a kiss. You are totally worth it.
