When I was younger I had one dream; and that was to be in a relationship. It took a long time and a couple of really wrong relationships to realise I can’t be in one.
The media has a lot to blame for this one. People see a romantic engagement as a sign of their worth, and what is more it is the happy end to the story of life’s fluctuations.
That is probably why it breaks my heart that I can’t be in one. But why can’t we re-write the story? Our value has everything to do with our values – not another person liking us. Also I love being single and always have. I am healthier when single. Surely that is my happily ever after?
