It's been almost a decade since I've been single. I get people asking all the time why I don't have a significant other & look at me like I committed a sin, like there must be something wrong with me to still be single. The simple answer I give people is work. The truth, I honestly like being by myself. I'm the happiest I've been with all the extra time to keep accomplishing things. This is for the greater common good, I can continue to work on myself and impact many people along the way, or I can make ONE person happy by replying back and forth to their annoying daily texts about nothing important. Between working 70 hours a week, taking care of a senior dog, and a million other things, I rather not spend my time having to deal with unnecessary bullshit just to get some free food or maybe a necklace if I am obedient for an entire year. Jaded? Nope, I just like my very little sleep. Sleep will give me energy to conquer the world. And the freedom to live on my own term, wear whatever the fuck I want, talk to whoever without somebody else monitoring me like a child. I get to be who I want to be without judgements and guilt. Self love is most important, when you're happy with who you have become, you'll attract the right people. Don't settle. Don't ever think there's something wrong with you wanting to stay single and having standards. But really, even with attracting the "right" person, I still much rather not deal with relationships. Career will always be my number 1, you either get it or you don't.
This isn't to say that all relationships are bad or anything, if you found somebody you're happy with, I'm happy for you. Everybody is allow to value different things. This is just to say that romantic relationships aren't for everybody and that's ok. Establish what makes you happy whether it be friendship/family, hobbies, callings, etc. Leave my alone ass alone without trying to shame me for not wanting to find a soul mate, I already did. I have 2 actually. Their names are Eevee(dog) and Yuki(2018 STI)😅 I'm so happy to see all of you guys answers on my previous post, you are not alone, we are alone together! Muhahaha.
