To the Girl Who Feels Like She is Behind in Life,
Every time I open up Facebook, someone is engaged, got married, pregnant, or just had a baby. No joke. Every. Single. Time. Sometimes I get upset and feel bad that I am not at the same part of life as everyone else. Although I don’t think I am ready to be married, or start having a family, I get the feeling that I am behind and not participating in something that I “should” be doing. It is tough at times, but I want to let you know that you are not alone.You are not the only person in the world not starting their own family and taking this journey. There are many people out there that are in the same boat as you.
Don’t let the thoughts rule over your mind. I think it is easy when it is seen everyday to get into a slump that you are “lame” or a “loser” because you haven’t started this stage in your life. It is so important to remember that you might not be starting this process now, but there is time in the future for it to happen.
Even though you are not married, or have kids, your life isn’t any less significant. Just because you aren’t busy raising up the next generation, your life is still valuable and you are capable of doing just as amazing things.
You are able to do so much because you aren’t tied down to responsibilities of a family. You can travel. Spend more time and focus on your education, or a hobby. I am not saying these are not possible when you have a family, but now is the time when you have all the time in the world to spend on you, and only you.
When you feel like you are falling behind in life, try to remember that you are going to do amazing things and if a family is not in your path right now , your time will come. It may not look like you have planned, or wanted it to, but it will happen in some way, in God’s timing.
