Single Women Reveal Why They Are Happy While Others Are Getting Married & Having Kids

Watching friends get married and have kids can be really tough for some single women. They might feel happy for their friends, but at the same time, it makes them think about their own desire for a partner and family. Society often puts pressure on women to settle down, which can make single women feel like something’s wrong with them. People’s comments or actions, even if they mean well, can make them feel even worse. It’s like they’re constantly reminded that they don’t fit into the “normal” mould, and it can be really lonely and hard to deal with.

That’s a big job! They see their friends dealing with all sorts of challenges, and it’s like a lightbulb goes off in their heads. They realize that being single isn’t so bad after all.
