[WARNING: This post might contain references to people that I know. I sincerely apologise in advance if you are being pulled into this unknowingly.] So, to be very fair and honest, I don’t know when it all began. I mean, I knew the year and I roughly knew the month, but not the exact date. It is a rather interesting fact to know but I do not necessarily want to know at times. But it is the one thing that made me the person I am now.
I had have many, many thoughts.
Am I really sad to be alone? Why should I be sad? Do I really need a partner to be happy? Have I forsaken my family and friends in pursuit for the one? Who I am, even?
And then it suddenly struck me; I need to take care of myself.
I realised that I am worth more than what I think I am. There is more to life than chasing a ‘structured’ form of happiness. Why should I desperately be seeking the perfect partner, when my best companion is myself? Why should I run a marathon to seek happiness, when the happiness that I am searching for is within me?
I am, should *and* will be happy, with or without a partner.
It’s not going to be easy, especially since it’s easy to just get on Tinder and start searching again (yes, Grindr is too wet a market for me). But at least, I know what to expect and I know how to control the overwhelming feelings. And with the support of my family and friends, the very people who care for me, I know I will go far with or without Mr Right.
My name is Ron. 33 years old. Libran. Singaporean by birth, international by choice. And I will always remember to love myself first before others.
Happy 10th Anniversary to myself :) [more background info in comment]
