Today may be another day. Today may be the awareness of a mourned relationship, a love that may never be, or a love yet to be. Or today may be the best day.
All I want you to know is that it’s ok to struggle today.
Believe me, I am in year 32 still single. I struggle. There are varying emotions I feel.
I try to remember that there are people who love me and support me every day.
I try to remember that I am ok.
I try to remember that my feelings are valid.
I try to remember to hold space for that longing if there is someone out there for me.
I try to block those feelings that I will never find someone and this is my sad reality.
I try to block out the negative and sometimes well-meaning pity comments…you know: “He will come when you least expect it. God has a plan in your singleness. God is your boyfriend…blah…blah..blah.”
I just try to give love to those around me the best way I can.
I just try to remember to survive the next 24 hours and then I can buy discounted Valentine candy on February 15.
I will try my best today so you should too. Happy Valentine’s Day.
