I pulled a Rihanna when she was on Vogue redoing her intro and I am still laughing, because I cannot believe I did not edit it out! 😂
It’s so easy to feel unloved or lonely when we are not appreciating who we do have in our lives and this includes ourselves. This longing for a partner is showcasing what we do not have and the opposite of Buddhist believes: to remove any desire. Want is not a sin, but keeps us in a dissatisfied state that gets us nowhere but down.
First things first: Practice gratitude.
This is so simple, even easy, but not a lot of people do it! I find myself wanting more from life, because I am not where I think I should be, but looking back — I’m exactly where I need to be and will get there. It’s just a matter of appreciating where I am and taking a second to realise that.
It is way too easy to get caught up in what we do not have. I appreciate the place I am in right now.
Do things you want to do.
Go out and live your life on your own. This is the only time you can do this, since you are searching for love so hard. A lot of people do not fully appreciate being single and not having to compromise on every single little decision. Enjoy this time while you can, because it will not be long before you do not have this again.
Channel the love you do have into those around you.
Find every excuse to make the most of the moments you have with people who are showing up in your life consistently right now. We take those around us for granted. The ones who are always checking up on us, inviting us to things we think we do not want to go to, or people who just generally appreciate your presence. Give these people the time they deserve with you for having been there.
Give these people the love you want to give a partner by showing up in their lives in any way that you can. Channel those emotions into something great by spending time with the people who already want you around. Make the most of your time with these high value people.
