Why I Used To Say I Was Dying Alone

Maybe it was my high school brain at the time that made me think relationships were not in the cards for me, or maybe it was the way my family always asked on holidays if I had a significant other. After awhile, I would just tease and say, "No, I have plans on dying alone." But in reality, it bugs me in today's society that a woman's worth is still placed in relationships.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy having a relationship, and I think they can be great way to learn more about who you are as a person. They are a strong, beautiful thing, but relationships should never define a person. Relationships are not really about becoming one with your partner, but rather deciding to go on the same journey together. You will always be you, and your partner will still remain themselves. There seems to be a lot of pressure in our society for having a relationship and that you need to be in one, but this is not true.

The truth is that you on your own are your own complete person. You do not need a relationship to be complete because you already were. As women we are already strong, beautiful, and unique on our own.
