#TheSW30 Day 5: The biggest misconception you think people have about single life

Day-5I’m on day 5 already of the single woman’s 30 day blogging challenge: The biggest misconception you think people have about single life.

Misconception is an erroneous notion or a view or opinion that is incorrect because it is based on faulty thinking or understanding.

I think the misconception most people have about the single life is that… Most singles are single because they are selfish. Most people believe that singles who refrain from being in a relationship means that they don’t want to be in a relationship because they don’t want to have more obligations in life, if they are the breadwinner of the family.

As a single person, I guess most singles are single because they are afraid of trying to meet new people who can replace their old loved ones who broke up with them.  They are so attached to the past where in fact, they should be moving on and letting go. They are afraid of making mistakes, because most of these people are perfectionists, I guess. They are afraid of not being able to reach the standard that most people have expected of them, where in fact, those are just purely made up in their feeble minds, particularly if these “singles” are achievers in their school and respective professions.

These bachelors, in my opinion are unmarried because they fear commitment and they are cowards. They know a lot about knowledge per se about so many things in life but they actually don’t know everything. It’s funny to say that too much knowledge can become a disadvantage because it can be a breeding ground of folly. Most especially if the person has so much pride that going down from his or her pedestal hurts. It’s just like climbing a mountain, it’s so difficult to climb a mountain because I have experienced it myself since I’m stout and particularly if you have a heavy baggage with you. There are assaults along the way. But just imagine once you reach the top. It feels surreal and so heartwarming. Your lungs gasp for air as it burns deep inside as you inhale and exhale, and the wind is just amazing. There is no pollution. However, climbing is just easy. The most difficult part is going down from the top. The steep side of the mountain is the clincher round adding up to that are the small rocks that may cause you to slide down and might cause a foot injury.

This is the danger of knowing so much about so many things.. it leads you to the top. But, will you be ready to step down once you reach the top, where you found your accolades and praises?
