Letters on Relationships: Single Life
You have the strength to question any relationship or situation that makes you even the slightest bit uncomfortable. In the words of Edith Stein, ‘Do not accept anything as the truth if it lacks love. And do not accept anything as love which lacks truth.’ We are called to relationships built on truth in the same way that truth calls us to Him.
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.
