I can’t say when you’ll get love or how you’ll find it or even promise you that you will. I can only say you are worthy of it and that it’s never too much to ask for it and that it’s not crazy to fear you’ll never have it again, even though your fears are probably wrong. Love is our essential nutrient. Without it, life has little meaning. It’s the best thing we have to give and the most valuable thing we receive. It’s worthy of all the hullabaloo.”
― Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar
I read articles everyday written by singles around the world. The eternal singles, the very recently turned singles, the too busy for love singles. Each one of them talks about why people should respect their singlehood status, not reassure them that they will most certainly find someone special in the future. I appreciate the thought. People have a right to choose to be single. But I do not choose that. I do not crave Independence. I love to have someone’s shoulders to lean onto. I am grateful if I have someone I can confide in. No, I do not have someone special in my life right now. But I am waiting for someone special to enter my life. I am not ashamed of admitting that I feel a void in my life. Despite extraordinary parents who support me in all my endeavors, despite having a great bunch of friends who never let me feel lonely, despite having a great life, doing something I love, I feel the need for someone.I am not apologetic about it.I am just human.
