It’s really tough when you’re inevitably having a bad day and you’re on your own at the end of the night.
Because as strong, as independent, as happy as she is on her own sometimes she just needs a hand to hold. Someone to kiss her when she’s feeling down, someone to tell her she looks beautiful when she’s doubting herself, someone to be goofy when she’s upset because as great as being single is, it isn’t better than love.
Contemporary culture is no stranger to dissecting the single life.
We tell it like it is. If we’ve been single long enough to be dubbed ‘the single one’ of the friend group then you can bet we’ve set a high standard for ourselves when it comes to dating, and we probably hold that same standard to you.
This hurt provides an opportunity and a gift. You have an opportunity to learn how to soothe, comfort and love the most important person in your life — you.
Thank you for taking your love away so I could find it hidden in myself. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Love is not that flutter in your heart or butterflies in your stomach. Love is not bumping into a stranger and looking into his eyes. Love is not candlelit dinners and exotic vacations. Love is not the best sex you’ve ever had. Love is not just hugs and kisses. Love is not the crap that rom-coms feed you. Love is not summed up in a single shot of Cupid’s arrow.
“I’ve dated guys ‘just for fun’ but I don’t feel like doing that anymore.”
You are where you are supposed to be right now. And if you’re not happy with something? Change it.
You are an individual—your very own set of specific characteristics and experiences and emotions. And yet, so much of what you’re going through is relatable to so many others. This book will show you that you are never alone.
