Dear young booless (single) sister… Your friends, those you started out with or even your juniors could be in fancy relationships, some could be engaged, married, even with kids… And you don’t even have a proper Boo (boyfriend), and sometimes it gets to you right? I know that feeling.
It’s important not to get pressured by the timelines of other people, I believe that we all have different paths to run, your path is not my path, what works for you might not work for me, so it’s not necessary that I use your life as a yardstick to measure mine, it won’t make sense for the fish to feel like a failure because the bird is flying.
Miss A’s having it all doesn’t mean that there’s something wrong with you, chill and trust your God, your time will come. Some people meet their life partners when they are 17, some do so at 40, some people get married early and are childless for years, some get married in their prime and have half a dozen of children, some get married early and are widowed before they get to enjoy marriage, some get to marry several times, some don’t even get married at all. I’m in no way condemning early marriage, I even love the idea of it, what I’m saying is, ‘stay on your lane and trust God ‘, refuse to be pressured by the timelines of other people, you are you, I am me, same with every other person.
Our single years are a precious gift and it’s up to us to make the best out of it. I’m not married yet but I believe that there are things we can do for ourselves and with ourselves as single ladies that we might not be able to do as wives and mothers.

Let’s be useful while we wait, pray and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, speak words into our future, learn new stuff, build ourselves, build our careers, make money, build relationship with others and bring our dreams to life. And be prepared for the Dear Future Husband when he finds us 😉.
Let’s learn to be happy alone and love ourselves, if you don’t even love yourself, how do you want that guy to love you? let’s learn to be emotionally independent. Let’s be happy with ourselves, love ourselves and never forget that God loves us more than any man could ever love us.
