I haven't ever been in a relationship.
Why, they ask! I used to reply that it scares me. The feeling of being that attached with someone or I have seen like so many relationships fall apart and I didn't wanna do that to myself.
It's because you haven't found the one, they said. And the conversation ended with a laughter.
Only yesterday I put a thought to it, Why am I single?
And the answer amazed me.
I am single not because I haven't found the one, but because I am still finding myself. I am still learning what works for me, what puts me off, what makes me happy or sad or disheartened. I am still trying to accept my flaws, still making peace with my compulsive behaviour, being proud of my evolution and acknowledging the things I hate about myself.
I am on the path of self acceptance.
Yes, I'll probably find the one but before I do that, I've got to be "The One" for myself.
The one I would know and accept everything about and I'll love wholeheartedly.
Cause in turn to someday love another, we've got to start by being our own lovers.
