Holidays were usually the times I felt it the most. I loved being with my family but then I released that I was single. It was bittersweet. I was happy with the people I had close but I was always longing for the one person that I would share my life with.
The quest for love isn’t a new one. It’s quite literally a tale as old as time. We’re all searching for it even if we don’t admit it. There’s something magical feeling that someone out there cares for you. We want to know that someone out there is thinking about us. We want to feel seen and honored.
I get why God asks us to wait for His timing on things. I realized how unprepared I was before and not in the right mindset for a relationship. Being alone may be tough but being in something at the wrong time can hurt your heart more. I’m still finding myself learning and putting someone else’s needs before mine.
Wanting to be in love isn’t a bad thing. It’s normal and a part of life. It’s not at all easy to wait. I’ve been there so I understand. Don’t give up on love and don’t feel like longing it is a bad thing.
