So I wanna start a new series, and take you guys a little deeper into my life. First of all I’m Black … lol which is a bit obvious. Single … by choice which is something people don’t really understand. And living in the capital city of Namibia, Windhoek.
I feel in Windhoek there is so much pressure on us women to be in some sort of relationship. Coming from a Wambu upbringing I’m at the phase where I should be getting married or in a serious long term relationship now. My aunts always tell me that I finished high school, I got my degree, I got a job now all thats left is getting married.
Hmmm … I personally don’t like the sound of that. Why does it have to be in that order? I feel like I am being forced into a relationship cause its the next step.
I have become somewhat of a rebel lately. Feel like I had to always be perfect when I was younger. Get good grades, be the person that ur parents always compared you to. I could not make mistakes. Now I am at a point where I am making mistakes left, right and centre and I love it.
People think cause ur not in a relationship that something is wrong with you, well nothing is wrong with me. I am in no rush to be in a relationship. I am not going to be in one cause it’s what everyone else is doing or cause its apparently the next step in life.
I am on a path of self-discovery. I wanna know myself better before I get another poor soul involved. I am fine with being single me!
Sorry for the long wait. Been having some serious writer’s block. But I hope u enjoy this one.
Have an awesome week.
Lovies you all
