THAT WE ARE SINGLE DOESN’T MEAN SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH US Part 1 BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE
The aim of this article is not to actually give an excuse for being single neither is it to advertise my status to attract people to my present condition but to encourage others who are also in my shoes even though I’m planning to come out soon. I’m about to upgrade to that realm too.
I know there are many out there who think something is wrong with them for being single till now even when it appears that many around them are engaged, married and raising their children. Don’t worry that Mr. or Miss right is coming your way soon. Be discerning, time and chance happens to it all.
Often, the reason why you feel something is wrong with you is because you compare yourself with others and listen to what others are saying.
As for me, parents, friends, pastors, fathers and mothers in the faith have asked me how long will you remain in this status without a clue?
Some told me that I’m really in a confused state, I told them confusion is an under statement because sometimes, everywhere looks like the way and being surrounded with wonderful great minds of like passion is not helping my matter at all (Winks).
They told me, “you need to get engaged as soon as possible to avoid the temptations of seeing beautiful sisters as you go about with the ministry”, I replied that “getting engaged does not stop other sisters from being beautiful anywhere I go”. I’m yet to get a prove that ministrations can stop one’s beauty or volumes of itineraries of a minister could close down beauty shops in areas where he would visit.
They said I’m getting older by the day, I responded by saying “I don’t need a prophet to tell me that, the rate of the growth of my beard lately is enough”. I also need a confirmation that being in a relationship increases or reduces a man’s age.
They brought to my knowledge that marriage is very important in one’s quest to fulfilling destiny, I responded from what my beloved sister, Dr. Bien Sufficient taught me over the years “purpose is greater than marriage and of what use is my marriage if I’m drowning in the ocean of purpose”. The greatest discovery of a man after knowing who God is to him is purpose not his spouse to be (though it’s also very important to discover your future partner).
They reminded of the fact that there is a vacuum in my heart that if not filled as soon as possible, I might misbehave. I smiled and responded by saying, “the vacuum has been there since I was born while haven’t I been mishaving and why is it that there are folks who has filled their vacuum yet still misbehaving?”.
They said I might not be able to control my body from doing “gish gish” again if I continue on this status. I said “getting engaged or getting married is not the remedy to stop this, it our natural body reaction”.
Folks, please, if you see or know my Miss Right, tell her I won’t tarry long again and if she hears my request she shouldn’t harden her heart.
To be continued, follow closely.
