Being single is having freedom over so many things. You can be friendly with anyone. Talk to everyone. Have meals with anyone you like. You enjoy all of it without being bothered that someone else might throw a fit if he finds out that you’re with the company of another person like an office mate perhaps.
Yes, I enjoy these things but not all of them.
I am single. A single parent by choice. It’s a tough decision that I made especially since raising a son is never easy. But of course, not all people can understand how it is so much better to raise a kid alone than raise him with an existing but invisible partner.
But let’s not talk about that. I’m happy this way now.
I must admit though, that there were also times when I felt like giving up. Days when I miss all the benefits of being entirely single. Things like staying out all night, spending-spree and drinking like there’s no tomorrow. Still, I stand up for my decision. I’m better with my choice.
Then, if ever time comes when love knocks at my door again, I’ll be more careful. I’ll pray hard. I’ll take my time to know the person well before I commit.
So, till now, my status remains single and not too complicated. 🙂
