Blog Post: Whistle While You Wait...For Love
Have you ever been in a headspace where you just feel lonely, Romantically? Sure, we have friends and family that can keep us entertained, but there's still a void waiting to be filled. We've all been there at some point in time, but just remember that this is completely normal. What's not normal is the constant self-pity and self-doubt that everyone is destined for love except for you. Just because it's not your time yet, doesn't mean it's not coming.
It can become frustrating and sometimes even annoying to see most of your friends cuddled up with their significant other on cold, rainy nights while you're still snuggling with your stuffed animal you won in the 2nd grade. Or maybe you're constantly 3rd wheeling and feel like you're burdening your friends that are in relationships. Maybe you're just sick of being "the single one" in the group. Of course you're happy and excited to see other couples happy and excited, but when will it be your turn?
The best solution is to whistle while you wait....for love.
I'm not sure if you're familiar with the song "Whistle While You Work" from Snow White and The Seven Dwarves, but that's what inspired me to put a little twist on this title. The term whistle while you work was meant to motivate people to.....well... whistle while they worked! That may be too literal of an explanation, but metaphorically, it means to try and have a smile on your face and a little bit of fun while you're stuck doing tasks that you never really wanted to do in the first place. Not only does it make the process faster, but it makes it a lot easier and more enjoyable. Whistle While You Wait for Love is basically the same concept. Instead of feeling woeful or sorry for yourself while being single, make the most out of it. Now is the perfect time to work on yourself. Develop a new hobby, try to promote at work, bake a pie! Do anything and everything that makes you happy. The point of this process is to take your mind off of dating or relationships in order to develop growth and self-worth.
Now, I know what you're all thinking, the girl that started a dating and relationship blog is telling us not to date or be in a relationship?? That's right! Sometimes it's healthy to be alone, but only when you're doing it for healthy reasons. The more you work on yourself, the more equipped you'll be to better handle romantic relationships. It can make you stronger, wiser, and maybe even a bit more hopeful about love entering your future. So ladies and gentlemen take my advice, and just whistle while you wait.
