Whenever I talk to anyone, they ask the same questions. “What are you going to do after you graduate? Are you dating anyone? Why not?”
Even if I am really enjoying school and my job or anything else, if I say, “No, I’m not dating anyone and I don’t really know why either,” they find it in their hearts to pity me.
Do you pity me because I haven’t paid off my car loan yet? Do you pat my arm and say, “Oh honey, you’ll be happy once it’s paid off.” No, because that’s weird. Yes, I dream about the day when I don’t have to pay $150 a month and can use that money for other things, but I’m happy and I know there’s a plan to pay it off. I have the means to prepare and pay off my car loan, and there will come a day when it will be paid off.
I’m just not there yet, and that’s okay. It’s all part of life and the reason that I’m here on Earth is to live my life and learn to trust in my Heavenly Father and return to Him. I know that someday I will be married, and that’s enough for me.
