Yep. it’s that time of year, again. Time for those that are boo’d or bae’d up to show the world that they are in a relationship. You know the big stuffed teddy bears, flowers, candy and such being delivered to the office/workplace. This is the time when you realize just how single you are aka’ ‘Singles Awareness Day’.
This is the day you embrace your aloneness. Not loneliness but your aloneness. There is a difference. A huge difference. Alone is not being with another person or by yourself while loneliness is not being with someone and pining to be with someone… Yep, pining. Again I was raised in the South and that’s what we say. If you’re not from the south or don’t understand just use your context clues, I’m sure you’ll figure it out.
Anyway. Today is the day to recognize and love yourself. In the words of my homie, Robert Dwayne Womack, If you think you’re lonely now, huh wait until tonight girl. I’ll be long gone and you’ll find another man that’ll treat you right.
I tend to stay off of social media during this time. All the posts and pictures… Just yuck. As you can tell I’m not here for it. Call me a cynic or whatever what have you but love just ain’t my thing. A lot of things just ain’t me but I’m working on it. Slowly but surely I’ll come around. Or not.
