Tell me the truth. How many times have you heard people telling you that you have to get married before a certain age? That you must have two kids before you reach 30?
Let me tell you something now. You have to shut down all those voices and opinions of others if you truly want to be happy and complete. Why? Because you have the right to choose when you’re going to get married and have kids.
Turn off all the voices telling you that you have to move in with your boyfriend before the age of 28. You don’t have to do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable and scared. Forget about the biological clock and all that nonsense, because it only pushes you to do things you might not want to do.
You don’t have to have children and create a family if your choice is to stay single and focus on other things.
Life isn’t a race. It’s not about who reaches the finish line first and it’s definitely not the 20th century anymore. Don’t make choices based on the fact that society expects you to make them!
Your parents might have told you that there are certain life rules that you have to obey, but while that could be true in some cases when it comes to love, there are truthfully no rules or boundaries at all.
Some people find their true love while they’re still in high school, while others after 30 or after going through a couple of failed marriages before.
Having a set timeline for when you’re going to meet the love of your life is one of the biggest myths that you have to stop believing in.
You could be focusing on your career when all of a sudden you meet your true love unexpectedly in a restaurant. Your whole life could be turned upside down in a split second and when you least expect it.
So, whenever true love decides to knock on your door, embrace it with open arms.
But don’t ever settle for some immature guy who’ll manipulate you, tell you half-truths, and deceive you into thinking that you’re not worthy of being loved.
A relationship with a man like that won’t last long and that’s not what true love is. Settling down with a toxic manipulator will only bring you sorrow and misery, and you don’t deserve that.
That’s settling for a life deprived of fullness and joy.
I hear people saying that they’re afraid of being alone for the rest of their lives. And for most of them, that’s the reason why they settle for less and never experience true love.
There’s no such thing as settling down late. You should rather be worried about settling for the wrong guy.
That’s certainly worse than being single because no one can make your life a living hell like the wrong man.
If you do decide to give the wrong man a chance to make you happy, then you best be prepared for constant fights, or at the very least, lack of affection and attention.
You’ll be sharing your life with someone who won’t have the capacity to understand you. You won’t be on the same wavelength.
And once you settle for the wrong man, you’re accepting a relationship that will lack respect and understanding. The only thing he’ll do is to take you for granted.
You’re rejecting the idea of living in the present if you decide to settle for the wrong man.
The only thing that you’ll have is hope for a better tomorrow, a hope that there will be a day when he finally realizes everything and decides to change.
The truth is, he’ll never be the man you want him to be. If you settle down for the wrong man, you’ll spend your life waiting for him to become something he’s not.
True love is much more than that. True love is being passionately and madly in love with each other.
Maybe you don’t believe that you’re going to find genuine love right now, but it’s better to be single than with someone who is less than ideal for you.
Don’t fall into the trap of accepting someone just because he’s better than your ex or because he’s a good person.
Settling for someone who won’t make you happy and give you his whole heart is a mistake.
If your feelings aren’t reciprocated and if he doesn’t make an effort to put a smile on your face, there’s no love. You don’t have a foundation for a great and healthy relationship or marriage.
Don’t settle for “good enough” or a man who doesn’t know how to properly express his emotions to you.
Don’t settle for someone who treats you poorly because you don’t deserve that. Remember, your love is much more valuable and you have so many great things to offer. You’re entitled to be treated like a lady and nothing less.
Just because society expects you to get married by the age of 30, doesn’t mean you have to fall into the same trap everyone else does. Don’t marry a guy unless you believe that he’s your soulmate.
We all have this one life, this one chance to be happy. So why should you spend it with someone who’s incapable of giving you that unconditional love?
Don’t waste your time on someone who doesn’t deserve you. Don’t settle for anything less than real love.
Wait for that perfect guy who’ll sweep you off your feet and make sure you know that you’re the one for him. Someone who’ll choose you over and over again despite life’s challenges.
And I promise you, you’re going to meet your soulmate, you just have to be patient and wait.
So, turn off those voices telling you that you have to hurry up and get married.
Your goal is to love and be loved, am I right? So why not wait a bit longer if that means you’re going to meet the right man?
