The Art Of Being Single Devotional Day 10

Day 10 - Change the narrative

Singleness is not something to fear or to hate. What makes singleness tough is the constant bombarding of overt and subliminal messages that we MUST be in a relationship to thrive, which simply isn’t true. When you were born, you were born with everything you needed inside of you. You are not less for not having a partner, even if your culture or society tells you otherwise. There are many people who love solitude, who enjoy non-romantic relationships, who have dedicated their lives to a cause. None of these people are lacking, it’s our understanding that is. It’s ok to desire relationships but not for it to be all-consuming to the point where we settle for relationships that are harmful or way below our standards. We should never be driven to lock ourselves into life-long contracts of misery to placate people’s opinions.

  • Recognise that singleness is just as great as a relationship

  • Understand the benefits of singleness, which is ‘you time’.
