Letters on Relationships: Single Life
Dear Ladies, I have desired to be a wife and mother for as long as I can remember. Can you relate?
It took more than three brutal years of striving and posturing to realize that I already had a love story. In fact, I was a part of the greatest love story of all time.
I want to affirm you that your worth is not embellished in the hands of those who speak and act unkindly.
“‘How are you still single?’ That question really doesn’t make you feel any better, does it?”
I am 32 and single again after an over-2-year long relationship which ended last May. Throughout all my adult years, I made marriage and having kids my idol. I had this feeling that the lack of my own family made me a worse woman.
Never underestimate the healing power of empathy.
