Single-Shamed

single-shamed

And I am telling you...

Yesterday, my colleagues were talking about how they met their girlfriends and boyfriends.
They had sparkles in their eyes.
Their face were lit.
I was the only single person in the room and the only one who knew the Three Laws of Motion.
I asked myself, why am I still single?
Maybe because I always compare Einstein and Newton.
Maybe because I sometimes hate people.
People are needy.

They say love is magical, I need to feel it.
It is freeing.
It makes me cringe.
It doesn't make sense.
I am alone but never lonely.
I feel enough, nothing's missing.
Maybe I already found the magic.
Maybe people are talking too much.
Maybe I don't need to listen everytime.

I love myself.

I am enough.

It is enough.


I just need to breathe, stay alive and be kind.

In order to feel "shamed" the person must on some level Believe the (opinions) of others to be true about them self!

Learning to control your thoughts helps to control your feelings.
