Reasons why you should not feel bad about being single


We have socialized to think after we graduate and find a job the next thing is posting our dating events and as you await the marriage or the wedding if the finances allow, then some baby shower photos follows. That’s when the social world thinks you are doing well. When friends miss to this on your Facebook, twitter, instagram pages, they think all is not well in your life. You become their topic and their main prayer item to narrow it down. The open prayers that they enjoy spread entire social media platforms and while they share a cup of coffee on Friday evenings.

Never allow yourself to be frustrated by the pressure to marry or to get married. A little pressure makes you proactive but much pressure distracts your focus from your goals. God created every one with a purpose. So your significant on the earth does not come from the fact you have a ring on your finger or someone in your life. Well, is important to have someone to lean on. Equally it’s powerful to develop self-backbone. Your value does not come to the fact you are Single, Married, Separated or Divorced.

Be Positive. Accept the fact that singleness is not a curse. Enjoy every stage in life moreover have much fun in this stage. Explore the world, travel, meet different people, visit different places, spend your money and enjoy the things many married can’t do. Above all remember you are set for a purpose. Your prime purpose for your existence is hidden in the mind of God. Seek him and perfect yourself in his ways.

If you are single don’t feel strange. Know that you need yourself more than the missing partner. Wake up, think positive and give your best in everything that you do in the day. Nobody counts in your life so let each day count in your life. Let it add more value in you.

Everyone will leave you disappointed for the fault of singleness. Many will not comprehend or understand how, why, – you are single; learn to block negative pressure that add no value. Find single guys like you and hang out with them. In case you need a support system of friends make it a small circle. Find a hobby that you enjoy doing and plunge yourself into it. Do community services. This how you discover your strengths and improve yourself to a better person in the next stage if ever happen. Keep yourself busy with worthy things and before you release you have no time to worry about being lonely.

Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present. And who said marriage is the destination of life? We are different, our purposes as well and so our timing are also different. We have different life paths and everyone should be given enough time and understanding to follow theirs. If you get there before me, make sure your life is perfect before condemning me for being too selective.

Never get into a relationship because you are feeling lonely; Get into one because you have found a person who makes your dreams come true. Nobody will ever complete you, Jesus will. If you don’t have love and happiness to share stop thinking that you will find them in the relationship. Relationship and marriage are sacrificial institutions for giving .
