They say love is something that is not just found in intimate relationships, it can also be something you can find in your family, in friendships you have, even in your pets. While this is true, you can’t deny the fact that the idea of not having someone to spend the rest of your life with is something that really scares you, especially when you reach the age of 24.
Some days you feel like you’re always surrounded with people that are happily in love. You go to the mall and see couples everywhere. Valentine’s Day comes and you have no one to receive flowers from. You watch your friends getting into relationships and you end up questioning the world why was it too easy for them to find someone to love them, and too hard for you. Although some days you feel like it doesn’t even matter that they are magically in love, and you’re not. That you are completely fine with being single. But most days you just really feel so alone. Then loneliness starts to carve in and you start questioning yourself what’s wrong.
Once you start feeling like no one will ever love you, remember these things:
You are beautiful. Never ever think that you’re not finding love because you’re ugly—you’re not. It is when you learn to love yourself first that someone can learn to love you. Embrace your flaws and turn your weaknesses into strengths. Never put yourself down. You are beautiful and never let any people make you feel otherwise.
You are worthy of love. You are worthy of a true and lasting love, not the kind of love that is temporary. You are worthy of someone who will fight for you, who will never leave you, who will accept you no matter how ugly your past is. And someday, you will get the love you deserve.
Stop searching so hard for love, and let love find you. Never let the pressure consume you too much that you end up forcing yourself to fall in love. And never force someone to fall in love with you. There’s no greater love than a love that is genuine and true.
No timing is too late for love. No matter what age you are in right now, someone will still love you. God has prepared someone for you and believe me when I say that His timing is always perfect.
