Single Woman Or Taken? Which one is it?
Does being a single woman bother you?
Is it good to be a single woman when all your friends are getting married or engaged? Do you feel lost sometimes? Does uncertainty bother you whenever you lie alone in your bed at night? I have been lately thinking about this for a while now. Does it matter to lead a happy life only if you are labeled as a woman in a relationship? Being married to a financially stable man is that all a woman wants? This statement alone really scares the shit out of me.
What is the issue? Let us understand.
When I think of a happy life what I mean by that is my freedom. Loving my own choices and my weirdest side like an insane. Not being apologetic about what I think, how I speak, what I wear, and how I laugh. I do not understand, why a single independent woman is judged so much? Why she is only expected to stay quiet and keep pleasing others by constantly compromising herself? How hard it is for people to respect a woman’s opinion? Why cannot people celebrate her growth especially a single woman?
I have seen incredible single women and single moms working so hard. From managing the home to taking care of kids and being a top performer in the office. But still made to feel guilty about living for themselves from their own family and friends. I respect the idea of marriage but the unrealistic expectation that comes along with it is huge. A woman’s world should only revolve around her husband and kids is so unfair. I have huge respect for our mothers who are housewives. They devote their whole life just taking care of our basic needs. It is disappointing that we become so ignorant that we never try to understand their mental health. Women are conditioned to compromise and feel guilty if not done to make everyone else happy.
Taking the right decision
Each of us has the right to be happy and make our own choices in life, making us happy. We should stop judging, complaining, and celebrate equality rather than criticizing it. Living life as a single woman is a choice and a healthy choice. Instead of getting pressured and ending up making a wrong decision then feeling regretful about it lifelong, it is better to take time and make the right decision that is good for you.
