I’m feeling a little under the weather today so I decided to do a round-up of my favorite quotes for single women that I have found on Pinterest. When Danelle Myer got divorced at age 30, she expected she’d just keep the same job, remarry, and have a few kids. In a gardening technique segment of the show, you’ll get tips from Edward Berna, an urban farmer who fashioned his yard into a fresh produce haven.
The show wraps up with a feast prepared by with Chef Isa Chandra Moskowitz, who opened the first vegan eatery in Omaha.
Many of us internalize the external pressures and expectations around us -- we adopt or over-identify with the issues of other people and society. One of the dangers of internalizing the beliefs and pressures of others is when those feelings start to drive life decisions. When you are single and not lonely, it is easier to ignore the external pressures surrounding getting married and enjoy being single. At 30, and by nothing short of a miracle, I extracted myself from a relationship that I, by the grace of God (and three good friends), identified as going nowhere.
We not only stay in bad relationships to avoid loneliness, but we initiate relationships as a solution to our loneliness.
Then you will love these inspirational poems about being out of love and away from heartbreak.
But seven years later, Myer was still single and sitting on her couch alone on a Saturday night. In our culture there is a very real pressure, whether spoken or not, to be married; an expectation that at a certain point in life, people should want to be married. We aim to please or meet the expectations of others rather than focus on our own expectations and desires. But, when you are single and lonely, it is much harder to lay aside the pressure to be what others expect. One of the shocking responses I got from friends after that break-up was how "brave" I was for ending the relationship.

I made a deal with myself a long time ago that I must avoid selfish people, even if they were the only people I knew. In my experience, we have to slow down, recognize that our feelings are temporary, relentlessly pursue self-awareness (know thyself first) and get help when it's needed.
I am a 30-something single woman who loves Jesus, family, books, crafts & everything country.
These cute poems are for all the single girls, boys, men, women, moms and dads who are free from a toxic relationship. However, it is not always the external pressure or presumptions that are the hardest for single people to bear or the most dangerous. If enough people ask, "What is wrong with you?" because you aren't married, eventually, some folks will internally conclude that something is wrong with them because they are not married. It is easier to accept that there is something wrong with you or to feel hopeless because you are not married. Problems arise when we make decisions that are designed to provide relief of temporary issues, like loneliness, but ultimately have long-term or permanent negative consequences. I had a friend who once took up with a man who lived in a basement room with no windows, had once been a mortician and admitted to her almost immediately (within 10 minutes) when they met that he has shot someone. Like the friend who does all the talking and can't talk about anything but herself, a meal alone is so much better.
A Surround yourself with people who exude positivity A You unconsciously absorb the energy of those around you.A  Chances are, if you are feeling down you have been hanging out with skeptics, complainers, and faultfinders.
Share these short rhymes as motivational quotes, pins on Pinterest and funny text messages with all your single friends. Often, the toughest challenges and most significant pressures of being single come from within. Who knows how many family, religious or geographical cultural beliefs are tattooed on our lives to our own detriment. Aloneness always means solitary, but it does not mean you are feeling sad, bleak or desolate.

If we take no action to address our feelings of loneliness and stay in that head space too long, those feelings can start to drive our decisions. The desire for instant gratification, especially in relationships, rarely produces the best results. I can't achieve long-term happiness by engaging in unhealthy and unhappy relationships of any kind. I could not imagine staying in an unhealthy relationship just to avoid real or perceived loneliness or being single. And there are countless other ways people respond to loneliness and the pressures to conform to what others expect. I also know what I need if I am lonely: I need to take healthy action -- pray, talk to someone, or go be and connect with other people. It is a beautiful phase of life which allows you to enjoy freedom, happiness and many other pleasures which people in a relationship will never experience. I was lonely and sad in that relationship and for me, the result of continuing that relationship would not have helped me to avoid loneliness -- I would have ended up lonely and married. I have also watched more than one person get married because they thought they were running out of time to have children or get married; they were scared of loneliness. I don't make important decisions with permanent results that only serve to resolve a temporary problem. Whether you have just broken up with your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife – always be single and happy, never single and sad.
