“All the single ladies…All the single ladies”
“I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T… do you know what that means?”
“All the women who independent…throw your hands up at me”
“ I love her, cause she got her own”
If you haven’t noticed by now, the above quotes are from popular songs over the years, glorifying the life of an independent woman. Now, more than ever this has truly become a coined phrase, sending all praises to the woman who has her own. But is that all there is to the life of an independent woman? What really goes on behind closed doors, in her heart and in her mind? What’s her story and reason for being the woman who has her own? And most importantly, what has she decided to do with her singleness? These are all questions that are usually left unanswered, based off of assumptions. You see, in our day and age this lifestyle usually consists of two aspects: one being a woman is very successful on paper with tons of accomplishments under her belt. Two being “she’s probably lonely”.
Boy, talk about surface level… I like to believe these assumptions come from the way we are all wired to think. From the time we’re born, we’re taught: “success = good job + lots of money + marriage/family. So naturally if your life doesn’t fall within the timeline of this equation, you’ve somehow missed the mark. This is why its tough to avoid the dreaded… “so when are you gonna settle down?” question from family and friends, no matter how much success you obtain.
Speaking from experience this becomes like a race of trying to prove yourself “single & satisfied” to those around you. But is it really the truth??? At this point it becomes time to turn the mirror on yourself to find out what’s really going on?
Find out how I took this journey and ended at the destination of true purpose… in my 2nd book “It’s ok to be selfish: The single woman’s guide to living fabulously free”
