It was a few years ago when I first got the thought to connect two of my worlds and blog about single life. As a Grief Recovery Method Specialist, I spend a lot of time talking to people who are doing their best to recover from life’s hurts and disappointments. As a single person, people would dole out (unsolicited) advice which I found to be both practical (do what you love) and dismissive (appreciate what you have). I noticed a theme between the conversations I have with singles and the convos I have with grievers: both are dealing with a loss that is limiting their capacity for happiness. So I started writing about the experiences of singles that was less prescriptive and more descriptive.
And then I started dating. All of a sudden, dating life got added to the mix. Mr./Mrs. Wrong, Breakups, etc. all contain losses: losses of trust, loss of hope, loss of faith.
And then one guy I dated became my husband and marriage became yet another area of written conversation.
If you asked me to condense all three social worlds (single life, dating, & marriage) into one word, it would be love. The search to find, maintain and grow love in your life. That is the crux of it all. So I invite you to check out real-life experiences of these worlds. They are located in the dropdown of the blog tab.
Thank you in advance for your participation in the conversation!
