Being single isn’t bad. What is bad is
giving up hope on finding that someone special.”
For most, single life is very lonely, where no one is there for you in good times as well as in bad times. But really, it's a crucial time in every individual. As Harville Hendrix says, " It’s a vital stage of the journey of maturation." It is a time to learn about who we are, to learn responsibility and self-sufficiency, to identify our true desires, and to confront our inner strengths and demons. Single life need not always be thinking of oneself but also to the people around. It's like loving the feeling of being free from attachments and focus on your dreams in life. And it's just that relationships are quite important in any individual that makes it much challenging to be in a situation of being single for years.
Lenten season is a 40days of reflection, that is to say, a recollection of moments in your life living with Jesus Christ. Each day starting with a prayer, as well as ending it with a prayer. It's the time to ponder how we deal with life's difficulties/ adversities, and most of all a time to ponder how we respond to God's blessings.
Mainly, It's a time with sacrifices especially fasting, abstaining, and chastity. Not only foods do we fast or abstain but also to our daily works in life. Daily works that not quite important/ relevant in our reflections. It is quite a necessary practice because it will give each of us much strength spiritually.
Our Faith can also be strengthened through a basic Christian duty called CORPORATE WORSHIP. The holy bible concisely tells us to worship God every Sunday in his church. It is quite important thing to do on every Sundays being in God’s house and being filled with grace of his presence in the Blessed Sacrament.
Lenten season is a time to repent and forgive those who trespass against us, continuing our journey of life. As Christ had forgiven us, so do we must forgive ourselves and each other, and move forward positively. And together with the Spiritual Works of Mercy as well as Corporal Works of Mercy enables us to put our faith in Christ into actions in our daily life.
And by these works of mercy one may be rewarded by God a special significant other. Who knows? Doing these works of mercy can we meet our soul mate. God's clock is never ours. It's never advanced, nor late. It's always on the right time. (",)
