I’m bad at asking people for help, which is part of that whole “stubborn” thing. I’m generally poor at admitting that I’m wrong, which doesn’t make the situation any better. But what a lot of people don’t know is that the independent, kick-ass, givers often need a special type of caring. Since we are the caregivers for so many, and we love with such fervor and boundlessness, we need to feel something in return. I don’t mean to say that I feel like my friends or family don’t take care of me, because they most certainly do. But I feel like there are certain times when the universe expects the world from people like me, and we just can’t give it to them. I can’t just give all of the time. I need to take, too. So, next time you’re thinking about yourself or all the things that you need, look around. Even the people who look like they’ve got their life together probably don’t. They need. They want. So give them something.
the ultimate freedom..
AMEN…I could add a few…but it’s too early in the morning
SINGLES ROCK THE WORLD OUT THERE!
I know I will…You can watch what you want. The remote belongs to you.
No but then there’s no one to hug you or anything that’s the downside that I see
You learn to love yourself better while you’re single. You’re allowed to treat yourself. You learn more about yourself. You can figure out exactly what you want and need in another person and go searching whenever you’re ready. You learn to take care of yourself rather than someone else at the same time.
Then you realize you’re almost 40 and still single - then it gets scary
There are no perks to being single. It’s almost always lonely and there is nothing to that. This is the stuff single people say to make themselves feel better. Tbh, I hate it and would like a bf right now.
Hm.. I can’t deny that sometimes I do wish I had someone considering how long ive been single but i made the decision to better myself before I get involved with anyone. Sometimes your own brokenness can hurt others and I think that’s why I’m takin this time to better myself. Sometimes independence is crucial. You can’t live your whole life trying to constantly have someone to cuddle with. Sometimes solitude is the best thing you can do for yourself.
Your wallet isnt empty all the time…
I was single for 19 years of my life, and now that I have a boyfriend I have never been more glad for all the time I spent alone. Yes, I spent a lot of time feeling lonely, but I learned how to be a whole person. I learned that it is okay to treat myself, and I had a chance to grow up and be a functioning human being without needing someone else. And I am really glad that I spent all that time alone. I’m really happy that I have someone now, but I’m also really glad that it took my 19 years to have my first kiss because of how much I learned about myself in the process.
My biggest trouble is how good we are together. No matter where we are, we can always find something to talk about. I feel so comfortable around him that it’s uncanny and, frankly, a little unnatural, given the circumstances.
