My mother and I were talking when I was home.
You know how the parents of single people are always expressing, "I wish you could find someone to make you happy?" Or at least something to that effect?
My mom actually expressed to me something quite different. She said she knew I didn't need someone to make me happy, that she didn't worry a bit about me being happy when I am off being single doing my happy single-girl things.
What does make her worry is when I am in a relationship. She says she worries because I have had to learn and work so hard towards being happy single that now she feels I can't seem to find happiness/let myself be happy when I am not single.
Isn't that a change of pace from what I expected. And reality can hurt. I often lament about those wonderful women who can't seem to be happy outside of a relationship. But isn't my predicament just as woe-inducing?
I hereby make it a quest to achieve the same level of happiness whether I am in or out of a relationship. To love more unconditionally those who deserve my love. Life is absolutely amazing. I do want to share my life with someone, making both of our lives even more amazing. I am happy single, but I don't want to be alone forever.
Have any of you ever found yourselves in this predicament?
