Being single is not a bad thing. Some people thing that being single when you are older is the worst thing possible, but it really is not. One woman tells her story about how she is 35 years old, still single, and how it is a good thing and a bad thing at the same time.
Katie Devine always thought that she was going to be living out every woman’s dream of being married and having a family when she was older. She says that she remembers when she was a child that she would do anything that other people found scary. She would make very impulsive decisions without really thinking about the consequences first. Now that she is 35 she still feels like she is that little girl, always doing those things that scared her.
Katie attended a wedding sans date and said that another woman couldn’t believe that she would go alone to a wedding. She said that was something that she never could do and would rather stay home. Katie quickly moved on from the conversation because that was one of her fears as well. She made a post on Facebook that she hoped would help her to move on from that fear. The post read, “If I only went places where someone accompanied me, I would never go anywhere. Don’t be afraid to do the things you want to do because you don’t have a ‘date’. You are your own best company”.
She says that what she has learned from this is that you can still live your life and be happy even though you aren’t with someone. She says that she doesn’t want to go on trips alone but she does because the option of staying at home is so much worse. Katie states that you can live your life but still want what you don’t have.
