First and for most I would like to apologize to everyone for not having posted in a while. I had midterms this past week and that absorbed my life. If anyone else was on the same boat I commend you on survive!
So, the most stressful final I had was about the History of Iran. I know it sounds super interesting and it is but it kicked my behind into next year. Anyway, one of the authors that we had to read was the great poet Rumi. This poet wrote about many different subject but his idea of love is the one that, to me, was the most interesting. He wrote, “Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.” This struck a chord with me when I read it because lately I have continuously thought, ‘Where is my prince charming?!’
The reason for this is that everyone and their dog has been blowing up my Facebook feed with their engagements. Which is great don’t get me wrong, but I feel everyone is on a different stage of life and I’m still stuck back in a mentality of wanting to get a really good education. Am I doing something wrong? Is it the classic case of, “It’s me not you”? I just don’t know.
Then after getting worked up about me not having a boyfriend I think, how many of them are truly happy with their choice? I know of at least two friends who got married because they got pregnant, and some that are doing it because they want to get out of the house. And worse I know of many who are in abusive relationships. So am I really missing out? Am I doing something wrong? No, me and all you beautiful single people out there are just not settling. We are not going to stay with someone out of fear of not finding someone else. We must never settle for our minimum; what we must do is strive to find that person who are Rumi says has always been in us the entire time.
Well there you go my friends a random post about love and my rant. Sorry if was too rant-y. Stay fabulous everyone and promise to never, ever settle for less than what you deserve.
With all my love an affection,
