Everyone’s life path is different. So is their love story. Not everyone has found the person they are meant to be with in high school or college. And not everyone needs to settle down in their twenties, get married and have children.
Because sometimes it is better to wait for the real thing. It is better to be patient until you find the person with whom you are compatible than hurrying to get married and settle for a person that is wrong for you and punish yourself with a life full of regrets and sadness.
If you are like me and you have gone through your fair share of toxic people, then you probably know how lucky you are for walking away from them and choosing your single life. You should be proud of yourself for leaving and deciding to wait until you find what you are looking for.
And even though you may feel a little lonely and sad when you look at the engagement and wedding photos from your friends, there is nothing to be sad about. Why? Because you are not falling behind. You will get there. After all, it is better to wait and remain single than rush into things and settle.
There is nothing shameful about being single. In fact, it is by far the most beautiful and important period of your life. It is a period when you will find yourself. It is a period to make all your dreams come true before you start sharing your life with someone else.
Your single period is the time to be selfish and focus only on yourself and your goals. And in my opinion, those people who go from relationship to relationship are not whole individuals. And in order to share yourself with another human being, you both need to be whole and independent people on your own. Everything else is just toxic.
So, take your time. Be patient. Don’t rush yourself. If you are not ready for marriage don’t convince yourself that it is the right thing to do. Wait until you feel ready and most importantly, wait until you are with the right person for you to do it. The person you love and loves you back. The one who is worthy of everything you have to offer.
Wait for them…
