I chatted to someone I love very much yesterday and she was sad. Sad because another relationship had not worked out. Sad because did this mean she would be alone forever? Sad because this must mean that there is something wrong with her. Sad because she is lonely and would love a partner. Sad because being single is hard sometimes.
I didn’t know what to say… I wanted to tell her that of course she would meet someone. Without a doubt he is around the corner, in fact, I can hear his horse stampeding towards her. But, the truth is, I just don’t know. I can’t seem to figure out why some people get to meet their person and others don’t. I don’t understand how people I went to school with have managed to get married, divorced and remarried and I’m still on tinder. It doesn’t make sense to me.
So I couldn’t say it. I couldn’t say that she would meet someone. I couldn’t promise her that it would happen. I couldn’t show her the future she dreams of. And, to be honest, I didn’t want to. What I wish more than anything is that I could show her the incredible light that she carries. The beauty that she possesses both inside and out. Her strength that amazes me daily. Her resilience and unwavering courage. Her kindness and her ability to love unconditionally.
I don’t know if she will ever meet someone, but what I do know is that she deserves to. And by God what a lucky guy he will be! Not some jerk who fits her into his schedule when it works for him and orders for her at a restaurant. Or tells her that it is unattractive when she stands up for herself. Perhaps the universe doesn’t push us into meeting the right one as much as it protects us when we escape the wrong one. Even when it hurts like hell.
So darling girl, straighten your crown and put on your lipstick, he did you a favor and it’s your turn to fly.
