If your social media timeline and news feeds are anything like mine, then you already know what season we’re in.
Holiday gatherings and New Year celebrations have ushered us into the what used to be one of my least favorite time of the year, ENGAGEMENT SEASON.
For those who may be unfamiliar with the term, engagement season is the time period between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day. It’s during this particular stretch of the year where almost 40% of engagements occur.
Seeing photos, videos, and those most delightful relationship status updates plastered all over my social networks used to be a painful reminder of just how SINGLE I am.
It’s not that I wasn’t happy for my friends.
I was just tired of feeling like the ONLY ONE without a happily ever after.
That feeling of longing combined with my impatience rarely led to anything good.
My feelings are probably the reason why I ended up in so many bad relationships. (If you haven’t done so already, be sure to check out 7 Types of Guys You Should NEVER Date or Marry…Part 1 to see exactly what I’m talking about.)
Trust me, I know how easy it is to get discouraged by the tide wave of images you see on social media.
