Single too long…
People who have
been single for
too long are the
hardest to love,
because they have
become so used to being
and self-sufficient, that
it takes something
extraordinary to convince
them that they need
you in their life.
~Lessons taught by life
Sometimes I just LOVE being single, and sometimes I wish I had a significant other.
Someone that I could count on,
someone to share the precious moments of life with.
I have always wanted a significant “life partner” but my expectations have been higher than reality has brought me.
During my time of being single, I have learned to be more independent, and self-sufficient than when I was with a partner. It is just a matter of survival.
You live and learn.
When you are responsible to pay all of the bills and totally support yourself, you grow up pretty fast.
Especially if you have children who are depending on you.
Because whether you are alone or together with someone else, your children mean everything to you.
They are a reason to keep going.
To keep on keeping on… no matter what…
And then there is the fact that everyone has their own baggage.
I have gotten rid of most of my past baggage through a lot of ;
- self searching
- moving on
So why would I want to take on someone else that still drives around with a truck load of baggage, ready to dump it all on me?
Someone who is still telling the same old story – over and over…
All in the name of LOVE…
That hasn’t done the necessary work of becoming a better version of themselves.
So of coarse it takes someone who is extraordinary to become a part of my life.
They have to be pretty special to measure up to the standard of living I have attained myself.
That doesn’t mean that I am harder to LOVE.
It just means that I have my “stuff” together and I now know what I want more than ever before.
So why would I want to take on someone or something else that doesn’t measure up?
Love is one of the most important things in my life.
I love and am loved.
I do things every day to share and show love in many ways.
I just don’t need anyone who is enforcing their version of LOVE (control) on me any more.
I have found unconditional LOVE.
Which means that I have learned to truly LOVE and accept myself and others as we are.
Being complete in our selves but never completely finished learning and growing.
Being satisfied in the now, but always seeking more.
