Single

February 4, 2008

Me at the balcony of the condo Single. Ah yes, that word some people love to hate, and some others hate to love… Do you wanna be single? Are you single? Are you happy?

Some of my friends don’t seem to like being single at all. Some despise the idea of being single especially around February and remain entangled in relationships that never seem to help them grow as an individual and in fact continues to drag them down in the long run. Some jump from one relationship to the other (ouch?), bringing along baggages that affect the present, never giving themselves enough time to heal.

Personally? I don’t wanna be single for long. It’ll be hypocritical to say otherwise. I want to be held close in someone’s arms and feel loved, as in really loved, and to love in return. I want to take care of someone, be his one and only, and claim him as mine and mine alone. It sounds like I am in love with falling in love right? Whatever. But alas I have no one but myself. It’s been months since I’ve been held even if it seems like it was shrouded with superficial feelings. And it’s been years since I felt really loved.

But now I am content with my single life. I love myself enough not to be suicidal unlike what others perceive someone with a self-diagnosed personality disorder would be like. Being single makes me grow as an individual, it teaches me to be more independent, that I do not have to rely on someone just to be happy – just to be complete.

I know mr. right/soul mate/partner in crime/whatever will come knocking on my door one day. And when that day comes, if he is sincere, and if he truly cares and love me, I will handle him with care. But for now, I am single and I am here to parteeeh! :woohoo: :gross:

[and you thought I’d end it with a serious note]

    I’d love to have someone in my life right now, that’s for sure. I’m sure it’d alleviate my depression. *sigh*

    The 14th’s gonna be tough on you, but don’t let it get you down. It’s only one day.

    LOL Leon, I haven’t celebrated v-day for years. I didn’t celebrate it while I had a boyfriend, I don’t think it would bother me now.

    Colleen, I’m coming back soon.

    Michael, depression will only alleviate if you allow it to. No other person can do it but you, having someone to support you just makes the process easier. ^_^

    Quincy, it’s tough but life doesn’t throw challenges your way that you can’t handle. Kaya mo yan 🙂

    Thanks for the compliments re: photo.

    I was checking all the pingbacks/trackbacks to my blog that I haven’t been checking in my 49 day blog absence. Gawd, it was way longer than I’d planned…

    Anyway, once pingback led me to something that got me all introspective today… regarding “being single”. This blogger quoted me as saying, “But I’ve realized life is more than being with someone. I don’t need anyone to be happy. I’m blessed, and that’s what matters.” (he got this quote from somewhere else… I didn’t say it to him, but apparently somewhere else).

    I don’t even remember where or when I said that… and I’m wondering right now about that comment. I guess it still holds true. I think, if you’re happy with yourself, and you do meet someone you’re supposed to be with… all that happiness transfers to that relationship. OK, I’m being corny. I just thing, you gotta be happy being you… with our without someone.

    WAW nice nice layout! 😛

    sabi nila, it’s nice to be single since… you’re on your own.

    but then, it’s a never-ending argument between the singles and the couples. 😛 lol
