Dear Single Girl, In 2018, The Only Person You Need In Your Life Is YOU!

Hey you! Yes, yes, you! The girl who thinks she's not enough. The girl who wants to fall in love, but is frightened. The girl who's struggling with a wounded heart. The girl whose relatives and acquaintances are wearing her down, because they don't think a girl can be independant and single and happy. The girl who's constantly being compared to a cousin or Sharma ji ki beti who found a partner at the 'right time' and settled down. Read this, and we promise, it'll make you feel better.

First of all, please know, we understand the struggle. You're not alone.

We live in a world where everyone's a self-proclaimed critic when it comes to others' lives and relationships. People close to you feel it's their duty to point out your flaws, insecurities, and strengths, ‘for your own benefit'. Often, it's just people projecting their own insecurities on you, but it still hurts and leaves a lasting scar on your heart and mind.

Whether it's a friend who called you "forever alone" at a gettogether, or a relative who­­­­­­ brought you down with thoughtless talk at a family wedding or reunion - negative comments are something you can't get rid of very easily. As a result, you begin to think of these comments as the truth of your life. But until when? Until when are you going to let their pessimism hold the power to mould your life 24/7? Someday, it has to go. And that someday, my friend, is now!

The most important thing we want you to remember is that you are, without a doubt, more than enough for yourself. It may sound unacceptable at first, but trust us, you are (enough). It's tough being looked down at, we understand. But it's about time you start caring less about what others think of you and stop spending hours overthinking and drowning in self-doubt. It's time you be strong and not let them make you feel that you're not worthy of someone's love. Every person is different and unique, so are you. Sharma ji ki beti and you have different life goals. Just because she decided to get married in her early 20s and you didn't, it doesn't make you any less of a person than her.

Instead, look at the bright side. You're alone but you're not lonely. Today, there's no one to create hurdles on your way to a successful professional and personal life. You can take your own decisions and not wait for them to be approved by a partner. You can choose your path, fail, learn and build a beautiful castle for yourself instead of waiting for a knight in shining armour.

We understand it's not easy to build the fortitude to overcome negative comments, especially if they're coming from your family or someone close. We know, you may be feeling like someone's bowling at you at 100 kmph, and you've got no bat to hit back. But that doesn't mean you give up and let them take over and make you doubt yourself and your abilities to lead life. Focus on all the good and embrace it all.

Most importantly, forget those who make you feel bad about your relationship status. You don't need those kind of people around.
