Dear B. Scott,
I’m usually a positive person but lately I just haven’t been feeling myself! I feel very unsatisfied with my life lately, like nothing I do is right. No man, very few local friends, bills piling up…it’s all taking a toll on my self-esteem and self-worth. I’m only 24 so I know I’m not supposed to have my life all the way together yet, but dang, when will things start to look up?
The beauty of life is that you never know what each day holds. That same beauty is what allows even the most unfavorable of things to happen. Life’s uncertainties keeps you on your toes and makes the journey interesting. Be grateful for each day and do everything in your power to make the best of it.
As far as not having a man is concerned, love muffin there’s no need to rush into that. You haven’t even figured out what makes you happy, much less someone else. Before you bring another person into the equation, you must work through your lack of satisfaction, low self-esteem and self-worth issues.
When it comes to friends, we all have to realize that at the end of the day we are standing alone. We have to hold ourselves accountable for the personal, spiritual, work that we must do in order to attract the types of people that would be most beneficial to our lives.
At various points in our lives, we face one, if not all of these issues. It’s up to us to figure ways to navigate them. I also want you to consider the benefit of potentially talking this through with a therapist. It never hurts to bounce your thoughts and feelings off of someone else, especially when they’re trained to help you.
Through it all, God is good. And I believe you will be just fine.
