Society: Well hello there. It’s drawing near…
Society: How are you feeling?
Me: Just wonderful I tell ya, great things are happening in my life.
Society: Great things? You’re single! Your biological clock is ticking so you better hurry up.
Society: Girl don’t you know you can’t hug your degree or your career?
Me: Seriously, who goes to school to hug a degree? Are you trying to tell me that the men of today don’t appreciate strong, intelligent women? Why should I have to choose between a family and an education/Career?
Society: It doesn’t look good. The ideal is for a woman to establish her home and family by age thirty. If you start now you can make it before you turn thirty one.
Me: Just what are you trying to say? Just grab any old body?
Society: An apple is apple. It doesn’t really matter. Choice is overrated when you are lonely.
Me: I can understand your point on loneliness; no one wants to be alone. I don’t want to be alone. Now Society, you listen, I have absolutely no intention of adding to the already high divorce rates that saturate your existence. My reason for getting married will never be to fit in your little box. It will be to someone I love that also loves me, for me.
Society: hahaha , you are going to be an emotional wreck, you wait and see. After that you’ll become a hard unhappy stone that will make the life of everyone around you miserable.
Me: Society if that’s how you feel about me I’m withdrawing my membership from you. Your definition for a good life is wrong and only seeks to please eyes and the status quo. I’m choosing to be defined by what the word of God says. The man that finds me will find a good thing. I won’t be desperate, I’ll be wise in waiting. Trusting God’s direction and instructions to my true love. I will “Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen my heart.
A Little Advice:
Dear singles if you have to lose track of who you are to fit in someone’s ideology, it’s not worth it and you won’t be happy. Do you. And do you the right way.
Till next time God bless you!
