Lately, I've been evaluating my life as a single person. I've been reading a book called, "Singled Out: How Singles are Stereotyped, Stigmatized, and Ignored, and Still Live Happily Ever After."
It's a great book and I've really been enjoying having someone stand up and shout to the world that single people are no less valuable or worthy than married people. I think women all too often, find their worth, value and validation in marriage. Not only that but I think people have a huge misconception that single people are pitiful, lonely and pathetic (so not true!).
Well, maybe you don't think you see it that way, but let's be honest... how many of you engaged or married gals would admit that when you met your significant other it was a sigh of relief and a huge boost in your self confidence and self image?
NOT that I value marriage any less...I'm just sayin'...
Yet, I digress...that is not the intent of this post... I have much more to say on that topic ....but it's still mulling around in my head and I've got to sort it out for myself first before I word vomit it to the internet. :) Trust me...you'll thank me for that later.
What I really want to know is....
Where do you belong?
Where do you find your sense of security? Your sense of belonging and acceptance?
Is it family?
Is it friends?
A significant other?
Or maybe even a job?
In service activity?
Or a combination of many things?
Please do share...there are obviously no wrong or right answers and I'd love to hear from you all!
