I celebrate and idolise the notion of finding the one true love. For me, being single and being happy is often difficult.

I do feel a deep need for someone who would love me unconditionally. But, at the same time, I also drown in my fears of many “what ifs.” What if I never find love? What if I end up in a broken marriage? What if I make a wrong choice? What if I grow old alone? And so, I swing from overly romanticising relationships and being overly cynical about them. But, as Jesus is transforming me, I am learning to trust in His unconditional love. In Him, I find peace and rest even in the middle of my fears and anxiety. I still often struggle being single, but I do know I am being transformed by the stronger, greater and relentless ‘love’ of Jesus.
