Success as a single person = no longer being single… right? Wrong!!! I want to challenge this oxymoronic belief that I developed somewhere in my life. Stay with me here… if success as a single person is “not being single,” a single individual can never be successful. Thus, holding on to the belief would doom me to unmet expectations, frustration, insecurity, and despair. Being in a relationship won’t make me successful, and if I’m unhappy now, it won’t make me happy.
I heard heaven’s white noise today through a reminder to find happiness in the present.
