Say that again. relationships requires much work. Getting married & having kids are not in my bucket list. Though I felt much pressure from family that I can't develop myself unless I have a child. A partner must be in alignment w/ my purpose & freedom & self development. My single & married life is very abundant. I have much flexibility to mentor more & to keep evolving & changing my jobs/business. I totally believe that I rather be single than to settle for a toxic masculine relationship. I firmly believe that getting into a relationship is a intentional choice not an obligation. It took much reprogramming. Now, as a single person it is now possible to foster & adopt kids. I had to limit my contact w/ family b/c I didn't enjoy all the pressure focusing on being partnered & many times people bring religion in the mix & I firmly express that there were many many single people & single parents & widowers in religious literature, actually all types of people & relationships are shown as examples. I'm all about self love & becoming emotionally intelligent. My life purpose is first & foremost. Make a single woman action plan this is similar to the mental health WRAP wellness recovery action plan or like an emergency plan. This was very insightful for someone to actually speak about what single people actually encounter.

My experiences w/ being ghosted. Give self a time limit. & Always continue your self care & self love routine b/c it's not about you; you may not be compatible or the other person isn't able to express their boundaries for whatever reason. But men & women both do this. It is polite etiquette, but it is prevalent. Definitely, talk it out it need be. Also continue functions w/ self & your community.
