Despite all the talks of saying I will become a rich single tita, I am still pretty lonely. I’m surrounded with a lot of people, diverse and varied, people whom I love and loves me back but it would be nice to belong to someone, and someone to belong to me.
As some of you may know, I have only one ex and one MU. And the rest are just, well, mistakes. From the 10 years of me being single, I’ve already underwent a lot of negative circumstances. But thank the Lord everything is becoming smooth as of now though. I have always thought that I haven’t gotten over my exes, but maybe I’m actually just trying to find my idea of love, not necessarily missing my exes.
Recently, I watched a TED talk video about what makes a good life. What that researcher found out, is that the key to having a happy, good life is good relationships. There may be relationships, but it must be quality, and not just half hassled, toxic relationships. I want to be able to have a good life, after all I am only human. I haven’t realized that being lonely makes you sick and that is exactly what happened to me when I was diagnosed with a mental health issue, I was depressed. I realize now that in order for me to be healthy, I must invest in a relationship.
And by relationship, I don’t necessarily mean a gf/bf type of relationship. It may be to strengthen my relationship with friends and family. If that happens to me right away (that is if someone courts me), then I shall embrace it. I also realized that this might be a way that the Lord is speaking to me that it’s a “go signal” that I should be ready. But if the Lord wants me to still wait on Him and His perfect time, I will gladly do so. I just want the world to know that I am now ready… to love again. And not let my greed of money, riches and material things get in the way. In the end, relationships stay with you. Stuffs? They can be taken away from you in a blink of an eye.
So I leave you with one thing before I close this article. Here is what God speaks about what true love is and let that be reminded in you as well:
1 Corinthians 13:4-13
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
