But they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”

Ang Diary ng Single
by Cherry Camille Depano

February 14, December 25, wedding, bouquet, chocolates, singsing, at teddy bear. Ilan lamang ito sa mga salita na masakit sa tainga at puso ng mga single. Allergic ka ba dito, este, agree ka ba dito? Kung oo, basahin mo ito, para sa ‘yo o sa napakaraming friends mo na hanggang ngayon, ang status single.

Nag-interview ako ng 25 single ladies.Ang tanong ko lang,“Bakit gusto mong magkaroon ng boyfriend?” at ito ang summary ng mga sagot nila.

I want to have a boyfriend because I want someone who will listen to my paulit-ulit na story, aamuhin ako kapag nagtatampo ako, magtatanong kung kumain na ba ako, kukumustahin kung anong nangyari sa araw ko, palalakasin ang loob ko sa tuwing gi-give up na ‘ko at hindi kakalimutang mag-good night pag matutulog na ako.

Naisip ko lang, baka katulong talaga ang hanap ng maraming singles. Ha, ha, ha! Kaya naman marami pa ‘kong ni-research at in-interview. Ang tanong: “Bakit hanggang ngayon ay single ka pa?” Here are the top answers:

May hinihintay na espeyal na tao.

Hindi maka-move on sa ex.

Naghahabol sa taong taken.

Hindi type ang taong may gusto sa kanya.

Torpe ang crush niya.

Takot siyang magkamali.

Umaasa sa wala.
Confused.

Busy-busy-han.

Nasaktan na at ayaw nang masaktan muli.

Natatakot makasakit at masaktan.

May ibang priority (student pa kasi o breadwinner ng family).

Takot sa commitment at responsibility.

Strict ang parents.

Masyadong mataas ang standards niya.

Walang magtangkang manligaw sa kanya.

Choosy.

Hindi pa daw siya ready.

Naniniwala sa fairy tales.

Naka-relate ka ba? Kung oo, huwag kang mag- alala. Normal ka! Lalo na sa mga malapit nang mag- treinta. Malakas na ang pressuresa paligid. Kadalasan na tanong sa kanila,“Kailan mo ba kami bibigyan ng apo?” “Kailan ka ba ikakasal?”

Alam mo yung mahirap sa pagiging single? Yung uma-attend ka ng kasal ng kaibigan mo o kaya’y binyag ng anak niya.Tapos lahat sila may partner pero sasabihin mong self-supporting ka at uuwi kang mag-isa. Pag Valentine’s Day naman, lahat na lang ng nakikita mo‘y may hawak na flowers na parang naglalakad na puntod (#medyobitter). O pag Pasko, ramdam na ramdam mo ang lamig nito (#feels). In short, singles awareness day talaga. Minsan maiiyak ka na lang at itatanong mo sa sarili mo, “Pangit ba ako? Bakit walang magkagusto sa ‘kin?” O baka naman sasabihin mo, “Masyado bang mataas ang standards ko at walang nakakapasa?” Karamihan ng mga single ay busy sa career. Doktor, guro, abogado, accountant at mga trabaho na nakatuon higit ang isip at puso. Minsan naman, takot lang talagang mag-risk at tumaya o baka nae-enjoy lang talaga niya ang single life.

Marami mang dahilan, isa lang ang paniniwala ko: Nakakainip, nakakapagod, at napakahirap maghintay. Ngunit ang bawat paghihintay ay may saysay.

Waiting hurts. However, waiting makes us a better person and prepares us to be the best version of ourselves. It’s always a process.A caterpillar becoming a beautiful butterfly, a fetus in a mother’s womb becoming a baby after nine months, and a seed blossoming into a flower. You cannot force a flower to bloom or a caterpillar to become a butterfly too soon. Sometimes, waiting is the most important time in our life. Even when you think that nothing is happening at this time in your life, God, for sure, is doing something. Ang mga taong nagmamadali, kadalasa’y nagkakamali. Matutong maghintay. Relax! May nakalaan para sa ‘yo, depende na lang kung pipiliin mo. What’s meant to be will always find its way. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. Kung para sa ‘yo, para sa ‘yo. Ang tanong: May ginagawa ka bang paraan o baka naman nasa loob ka lang ng bahay? Slow down and enjoy the journey.Take time for what matters most because beautiful things take time. Being being single doesn’t mean you’re not too good to be with the right one; it means you’re just too good to be with the wrong one.

Perks of Being Single

Maraming pera, puno ang bulsa.

Walang commitment (Pwede mong gawin ang gusto mong gawin).

Walang magtatanong sa ‘yo kung nasaan ka, anong ginagawa mo, kumain ka na?

More time sa family and friends; puro group dates.

Maraming load kaya madalas mag-GM (Group Messsage).

Madalas mag -Facebook,Twitter, IG, minsan LOL o COC,

Maraming panahon para ayusan ang sarili.

Being single will save you a thousand times more stress.

You don’t need someone to complete you.You only need someone to accept you completely. Don’t find your better half. No one can ever complete you; only God can do that. So, be complete and whole in Him, and after becoming one, look for your other whole. God wants you to be happy. Pray for the right one. Get to know one another deeply and discern whether it’s the right time.The moment you understand your true value — that’s not based on fame or luck — will be the very same moment you will know what it means to be truly happy.

You deserve the most pure, sincere and authentic love.

I’m excited for you! Praying for your happiness.

ANG BAWAT PAGHIHINTAY MAY SAYSAY

Naranasan mo na bang maghintay? Ang hirap ‘no? Waiting hurts!

Kailan ba talaga ang tamang panahon? Sa tingin ko ang tamang tanong eh, bakit ba natin kailangang maghintay?

Sabi ni Lord, “He has made everything beautiful in its time” (Ecclesiastes 3:11). May saysay ang bawat paghihintay na ganap sa buhay natin. Waiting makes us better people and prepares us to be the best version of ourselves.

May mga bagay na dapat dumaan sa proseso. Kailangan mo itong pagdaanan bago ka makarating sa tamang panahon. Sa totoo lang ang mga taong nagmamadali, kadalasa’y nagkakamali. Matuto tayong maghintay. Beautiful things take time.

Payo ko sa kapwa kong naiinip na, relax ka lang! Darating din ang biyaya, tagumpay at pag-asa.

Ito ang tamang panahon para magmahal ng walang hinihintay na kapalit. Tamang panahon din para maglaan ka ng oras para sa mga importanteng bagay sa buhay mo tulad ng pamilya, mga kaibigan, at mga pangarap.

Read this book in your season of waiting at matutunan mo ang mga mahahalangang bagay tulad ng:

  • The Art of Letting Go
  • Lab U (Loving Myself)
  • Ang Mga Gusto ng Babae at Lalaki.
  • Mga Bukas na Liham sa mga Taong Maraming #Hugot
  • #Hugot from A-Z!

Dreams do come true, in God’s time! Basahin mo ito para makalma ka while you wait.
