Becoming or Staying?

I've always been pretty honest with some of my postings when they are in regards to me. Today is no different. Through a few conversations with others, I keep coming back to the question of, "When will my life change?" I have lots of friends who are either dating, getting married, having kids, or their kids are growing up. I feel like at times my life is just standing still while others' lives keep moving.

I know I'm probably not the same person I was a year ago...but what have I become? I think that I am more obsessed with food and working out than before (not a good thing), more confident of my teaching ability (some days), more honest with God (that's a good thing), more appreciative of my friends, and more aware of my need to be with others and not alone all of the time.

Sometimes it's just frustrating. Does anyone else feel this way?

Hmm.....let's have coffee or sushi together some night and chat! Let me know what your schedule looks like! :)

Yes, I feel this way too. All of my friends are now married and raising children, and I am still waiting for my someone special to appear.

I certainly have felt this way too. I've watched friends get married and have kids. My younger sister just had her first baby. That was tough. There have been many days that I questioned and wondered why me? What's wrong with me? Why don't I get my chance? Just recently I've met someone (after years of being alone). I believe that my time alone was valuable and served a purpose! It's hard to hold onto faith that someone's out there for you, but let me tell you...it's true. Be true to who you are. Don't be with someone just to be with them. Someone is out there just for you! I believe it! Good luck.

I know its trite but I have so many friends with people/partners who are still looking.

still feeling alone.

for me it's worse to feel lonely in a crowd than to feel lonely when Im solo.

(does that make any sense?! :))
