  1. The world isn’t going to collapse around you if you’re not married by 30

The one thing all of us have been forced into fearing is the thought of entering our 30’s alone and single. Our society has ingrained in us the thought that if you’re not married and settled by the time you’re 30, if you don’t have an exact life plan, and if you don’t have someone to call your own, then it might remain this way for the rest of your life. Trust me- there is no reason to be so scared! There is no reason to feel any kind of shame or embarrassment if you’re still single.

You didn’t come into this world with an expiration date on you. Love and marriage don’t come into our life with a specified time limit. And if anyone judges you for being single or makes you feel any less for it, then they don’t even deserve to be in your life in the first place.

  1. You can never force a person to stay

In life, you might end up meeting someone who feels like they’re the answer to all your prayers, someone who makes your heart beat faster with just one look, someone who seems to be here to complete your perfect love story, and someone who you’re sure is your one true soulmate. But sadly, in some of those instances, the other person won’t be experiencing the same feelings for you.

They won’t look at you like you’re all they ever wished for. They won’t feel like you’re the one true happiness in their life. And they won’t think of spending their entire life with you. As harsh as this may seem and as sad as you might feel about it, you will need to accept this. You can’t just force someone to be in a relationship with you when they just don’t want to.

You can’t force someone to feel the exact same way that you’re feeling. You can’t force them to stay in your life when all they hope to do is leave and find someone else. Because if you do, you will only end up making things even worse than before. - Continue reading on the next page
