I’m a single lady over 3o and I’m not ashamed of it. I’m single but I’m full, highlighting the truth that there is no such thing as a disgrace in singleness and there’s no disgrace in needing to be married.

I need to be married however I’m not but married and I’m not going to place my life on maintain till that occurs, I’m going to dwell my life to the fullest and I at all times preach this to each younger feminine that I converse to wherever I am going. I’m glad to dwell my life to the fullest till marriage comes.

It’s a utterly horrible mindset to stereotype ladies that aren’t married and we should struggle it. You might be 40 but glad and single, singleness shouldn’t be a situation, you might be simply single and that’s what it’s. It doesn’t make you lesser than anybody who has gotten married and who gave us these timelines?

I want us to construct a greater society the place ladies can dwell to their full potential whether or not they’re married or not. A society with out strain and simply letting individuals be and permitting them to breathe. No matter section you might be in, enable your self to breathe and delight in the fantastic thing about that section.

I’m single, I’m glad, I’m thriving…
