Stop Asking People Why They’re Single
Are you constantly being asked why you’re single? Well, this one’s for you . . . and for the people who ask silly questions like this.
All through my twenties and thirties, there was a continuous “Why are you still single?” and “Don’t worry, you’ll find your someone!” ringing in my ears. I expected the pressure to get married and settle down from my family, but hearing this from my friends and peers was extremely frustrating!
As you may have heard me say before, I chose to focus on my self-work rather than a relationship. While I was doing this, I realized that the constant nagging and questions from my peers didn’t have anything to do with me – it was about them. I realized that they were trying to affirm their own decision to couple by pressuring me to do the same. And that’s when everything changed for me. I knew that I was happy with the choice I made to focus on my self-growth, because I was working on myself in order to live my best life.
My advice to you when these types of questions start coming your way, is to F the noise and focus on self-love. As Ru Paul says, “If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?”
