I was on the “intranets” using the old google machine when I stumbled across this blog post on another site about putting God first and the right guy will just show up. The writer said:
So whether you are reading this and you are the 16 year old who has a Pinterest board full of wedding dresses and engagement rings, the 26 year old woman that is wondering when it will be her turn or the girl who has no idea what her wedding will look like. Be present and thankful of where you are now.
My initial reaction was, “those are some pretty good thoughts, I’m going to ignore the Pinterest dig, but in general … good thoughts.” Then, at the bottom of the page, next to her bio, it said this:
Sarah grew up in a Pastor’s home and now finds herself married to one.
So much anger.
It’s honestly a little hard to quantify exactly how angry I am.
YOU DON’T GET TO WRITE A SINGLES BLOG, OR A BOOK FOR SINGLES WHEN YOU’RE ALREADY MARRIED.
Can I please get an amen?!
Especially since the author of that blog was like 16 when she got married.
No, she’s not from Kentucky.
Good question though.
I hate that.
Of course it’s easy for you to be positive about it. You’re already married. But guess what 36 year old woman that wrote a great blog post about waiting for the right guy, even though she’s married with two kids: you forgot that low point when you were bawling your eyes out, stuffing your face with ice cream, all alone in your parents house at 32, watching the notebook for the 5th time in one day after being dumped by your long term boyfriend.
I want that ladies opinion.
I want to stop eating ice cream, or in my case going shopping, without having to get married first.
Can a single lady please tell me how to do that?
