Now that’s an ad i would love to see get aired. Recently I happened to engage the matter between my ears in some vigorous activity, when it somehow dawned on me…being single is desirable! At least for people in abusive relationships there is no doubt about that. When you think about it, relationships are not all rainbows and butterflies with happiness and smiles tagged on to them. Of course there are happy moments and the not so happy moments.In my opinion though, relationships are all about compromise. To begin with, when a relationship is formed…one soul will exist in two bodies. Besides that, there’s the ‘we’ mentality. You will probably have to seek someone’s opinion before making decisions in your life like moving to a new town, changing the curtains…etc because it will in one way or another affect the other person. There are dreams you will give up, friends you will drop,places you will avoid…however dear they once were to you all in the name of being in a relationship. To me, what all this translates to is compromise! Along the way,somehow, you lose your identities or values even. Single however, there is less to worry about and if any it all about you. I’m not sure what Liz Winston had in mind when she said “I think, therefore I am single” but perhaps she shared my line of thought.
If you must however be in a relationship; learn to love the fool in you,the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries…before you love another.
