Every time I go on Facebook, someone’s hit a new relationship milestone. It’s like love, engagements, and marriages galore.
And for us single-folks, it kind of sucks.
I know exactly how it feels to watch everyone around you enter relationship after relationship, or to just simply have somebody while you currently have nobody.
It’s hard. You just want that companionship, that love. But it seems that the harder you look, the farther away it gets. All you want is to wear that relationship crown and reap the benefits that it brings.
There’s something a lot of girls don’t realize, though: singleness is probably one of the most stunning looks out there.
You’re wearing the best of the best; you are rocking that single status. All those designer clothes, that expensive make up you put on has nothing on that.
Not even the relationship crown can compare.
And here’s the reason: when you’re single, you’re nothing but your authentic self. You don’t have to be anyone else. That is so beautiful it’s ridiculous.
The thing is—there’s no need to rush to throw that crown off your head. It looks too beautiful there for that. Take the time you’ve been given to enjoy this part of your life.
It’ll probably be some of your best years if you let it be.
And I promise, the more you enjoy yourself, the quicker love will seek you out, the faster it’ll land in front of you.
And God, that man will appreciate you for everything you are and have become, all the growth and beauty you took on as you strived as a single woman.
So enjoy your singleness while you can. I promise, it looks absolutely stunning on you.
