To be happy is one thing but to be able to maintain and sustain such is another. For one, I am happy. I may not be with another significant other at this moment but I am happy as I am stable. I am working thus I am able to support my yearnings in life. I am surrounded with people I call friends that, anytime of the day, I can talk to them about everything and anything under the sun. Importantly, I have a family that supports me and contributes well into the perfection and completeness of my life.
I would be a hypocrite if I say that I am not one who gets jealous of those who are with a significant other in their lives but , with all honesty, I can say that I am happy of where I am now and who I am with. The time I spent gawking at lovers have passed as I have learned to embrace what I have. I used to dwell on the imaginary and question why I have no one in particular to be right by my side, but as hours turned into days, I have accepted that this is not the right time to fall in love.
Do not get me wrong, this is only a subjective recount of my life and of the lessons I have learned from Neuro Linguistic Programming and Time Line Therapy®, hereinafter referred to as NLP and TLT respectively. Not to warrant any negativity, I believe that I am traversing my rightful path as I am happy and able to be one despite my incompleteness.
To dwell on such minute detail could verily destroy my present life. I could delve on it for as long as I want but that would result to a waste. For one, I do not want to waste my time and my life pondering on the inexistence of the unknown. I know, in due time I would fall in love again, but as of now, I am happy despite the fact that I am single.
I am single, so what? It is not as if I am the only one here. I believe there are others and for whatever reason that might enlighten them, they chose to be free and single than be with someone. NLP and TLT taught me the importance of enriching the self first before imparting part of such to others. That with an empowered innate and external self, I would be able to withstand any form of encumbrance and circumstance life would give me. Although, I admit, I miss having to snuggle with someone but I do not want to throw a portion of my life and love without having to love myself first. I know, some may say take risks, I have and I have not regretted it but, as I age and mature, I learned to take my time and develop myself first into the person that I aim to be.
I know that somewhere along the way I would meet the other person that would add flavor and spice in my life. For now, I am happy and contented with myself. I hope you are too.
