Being happy is difficult
2 months ago · · Marital Stress,
I'm 26, never had a relationship, never had a moment that I could carry in my heart, and when I see people around me in relationships, it makes me depressed. Don't get me wrong, I am ever happy for the couple, but when I think about myself, that's when depression kicks in.
I think, wow they look beautiful together, they're really happy, how happy would it feel? I haven't the slightest idea.
And where I come from, arranged marriage is very common, India. And I'm the product of an arranged marriage and I happen to understand and value the meaning of relationship because I've seen enough marriages of my uncles and brothers and even my parents to know that love is more than what they have. I could only feel sorry for them who have married into for the sake of marriage and not love. Yes people do say love happens even after marriage- but I strongly believe that that statement is only valid if you get married when you are young- in your 23 or 24, early 20s. And that love that happens after marriage changes who you are.
For now my goals are clear, I've to take care of my parents, and about love, I don't know. I will love the spring and the winter, I will love the rain, I will love a good music that changes you from within. Most of all I will love seeing people holding hands, falling in love and having a great life even though I seem to have exhausted my years without a special someone.
