It feels like practically everyone is in a relationship, engaged, or getting married. It can be overwhelming, especially when your family members want to know what is going on in your “love life”. Not to mention all the songs, movies, and television shows about spending time with your special someone. First, I have to say that I am so incredibly happy for all my friends who are in relationships right now. I am in no way bashing you because I understand that everyone is at a different place in their life.
That being said, it is not fun to be single during Christmas. I mean I wouldn't complain if a Ryan Gosling look-a-like came in like prince charming and asked me out. However, I've been thinking. What is so wrong with being single? Our culture makes single life out to be miserable, as if it is the worst thing in the world. Singleness is equated with loneliness. If you have ever felt worthless or lonely please know that you are not alone. Even though I am writing this post, I still struggle with these feelings on a daily basis. I am in no way, shape, or form a perfect person, but I am tired of feeling this way!
The truth of the matter is that even when we feel alone we are not alone. God is always there. He loves each of us so much (“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made” –Psalm 139:14 NIV version). We are always going to feel lonely because we were made to have a need for love that only God can fill. Single life may actually be a blessing in disguise. We can take this time to try new things, travel the world, and find out who we are. Eventually God might bring someone into my life, but for now I am single and NOT ready to mingle! :)
