How can women who are single around this time of year handle feelings like jealousy or as if something is wrong with them if they see their friends engaged, having babies, etch and the woman is not?
Almost 50% of the US population is unmarried, so that is a lot of people who have something wrong with them if youâ€™re feeling that the two go hand in hand! First, know that the jealousy goes both ways. Some married women look at the single women in awe of the freedom that they once had. There is more to life than being married and having kids and single life is your time to go for it! There is a chapter in my book on this topic. Itâ€™s about Dolly Parton and how a documentary about her changed my personal feelings that I was missing out of something my friends had and took away the pressure to have kids. This was when I found out she never had kids. She was married, yes, but she was so busy creating music, acting and starting businesses that having kids just never happened for her. She had times where she was sad she didnâ€™t have kids, but always looked at any child she met as her own. Then, she created Dolly World to make them happy! Sheâ€™s undoubtedly one of the most amazing, positive people in the world so maybe when you start getting hints of sadness thinking of your relationship and parental status, you can think of Dolly and realize that you may not be a wife or mother, yet, but you have every chance of becoming an icon.
