As a child, all I wanted was to be successful and learn to do things on my own. It may not seem like much but when compared to other women who are so afraid to even live on their own because they may fail, it is a big deal.
Being single showed me that I can stand on my own two feet and solve problems when they arise without the constant fear that I am not able to do it on my own.
I had the opportunity to explore my unconventional female interests without having to explain myself to anyone.
The joy of singleness allows you to be independent.
Wanting a partner after a certain age is NOT DESPERATION.
However, as the time passes, the feelings of desperation increases which leads to wrong choices and even disappointment in God.
Enjoying singleness helped me to indulge in my selfish wants and has now prepared me to be able to give in a relationship and as a mother.
For most women, having a man was the life lesson since birth. Some of us can remember as kids when the adults would tease that we had ourselves a “little boyfriend” even though we did not truly know what that meant. There are some very joyous aspects of singledom if you look for it.At church: you see the happily married couples; On the tv: the internet dating ads show their successes; At work: people talk about their spouses or you hear about someone’s new love/sex partner.
