In my life, there have been many challenging issues I’ve had to deal with, regarding both my experiences of being single and being married. It has been in the past, a very strong expectation in our culture that women must find a man, get married and have children or else you would be frowned on and thought of as an old maid at age 25. So, I got married.
I thought I’d share with you my learning lessons of what the differences were of my being both single and married in my life. I hope these insights will open you up to a new way of thinking, learning and living this life of yours; instead of spending time waiting for the fantasy of Prince Charming to come save you…and the chances of that happening is almost nil…this expectation you might have about all that is Walt Disney’s fault (only joking).
It took me a long time to learn that in order to have someone love you with no agenda, you need to love yourself and take care of you first…only then can you really love with no expectations. And when I did, the love of my life showed up (60 years later), a perfect fit for me.
