Ahmm, today’s challenge is a bit too personal, way too personal that is. I kind of want to skip this altogether or give an incredibly out of line answer regarding my relationship status, something that goes like I’m in a relationship with my laptop and iPhone and it’s complicated. 😀 Too out of line? That’s what I thought. Anyways, since it is part of the challenge and I have just a few days left before I can finally shake my own hand for sticking with this 30 days blog challenge so what the heck, let’s go with it.
Alright, so here’s my answer to the question what is my current relationship status:
I’m currently single and loving it; well at least as of the very moment I am. There was once a time that I was extremely afraid to be alone that I was sort of deluding myself and I get into futile relationship just because of that. But looking back, it was more of my being in love with the concept of being in love that I was even trying to salvage something not worth salvaging. I’ve been in a one sided relationship after the other; it was tiring. The other party has the right to ask me where I was, what I was doing, who I was with but I was not allowed to ask the same. At first it was fine, I was passive about it but as days pass by I got sick and tired of it. I’d rather be alone.
Overtime, I woke up to the reality that it is not bad to be single or alone. I can do whatever I want to, go wherever my feet takes me, be with friends and be at ease because of the fact that nobody would ask me these questions: Where are you? What are you doing? Who are you with? It’s liberating and it gives me more time to concentrate on myself and plan whatever it is that I want to do with my life after I settle the things that I have to settle.
Maybe you’ll ask: Aren’t you thinking of settling down at your age? The answer would be not right now though I haven’t closed my door to that completely. For now I just want to enjoy my life as it is, without complications. If somewhere along the way that person comes along, surely I’ll take notice, but for now, I’m staying single and love and savor every moment of it.
That’s my status. How about you, what is your current relationship status?
