Sino kaya ang ka-forever ko? Kailan kaya siya darating? May forever nga ba talaga? Perhaps, these are some questions that sometimes, if not often, cross your mind. You wonder with whom you are meant to spend the rest of your life. Pressure is even greater if your age is near the end of the calendar. Sobrang tagal mo na ba sa waiting shed? Keep calm and try following these tips:
Never underestimate the power of prayer. Someone once said, “Prayer moves the hand which moves the world.” Just like any request, ask God to give you a lifetime partner who is God-fearing, family-oriented, loving, gentleman, kind, humble, and responsible. While his identity is yet to be revealed to you, pray for him in advance. He could just be around the corner. God will surely let your heart beat in love for the right person at the right place in the right time. Patience, my dear.
#2 Love yourself.
You definitely cannot give love if you don’t have it yourself. Love should begin with you. Get a stable job and treat yourself more often. Level yourself up and boost your self-confidence. Mag makeover ka para prepared ka kung sakaling dumating na siya.
#3 Learn life skills.
Life skills refer to those we ought to have in everyday life. Learn to cook, do laundry, clean, budget, and the like. You will need them when you get married. Getting married? Oh, c’mon! Don’t give me that look. You wouldn’t want to waste your time in entering into a relationship if your ultimate goal is not to start a family of your own. Be a spouse-material.
#4 Practice humility.
One of the reasons why couples separate nowadays is because of pride. One always wants to get even when it shouldn’t be the case. It is hardly possible to end an argument if no one is willing to put his guard down. As early as now, learn to say “I’m sorry” even if you’re not totally at fault. Always choose to be the better person. Jodi Picoult, author of “My Sister’s Keeper”, said “You don’t love someone because they’re perfect, you love them in spite they’re not.” There you have it. Choose love.
#5 Wait patiently.
Waiting is the hardest thing to do, but BEST things come to those who do. Stop stressing yourself in searching for your ka-forever on your own. When God sees that you are ready, He will either bring him to you or you to him.
Let God write your love story. It may not be written how you wish it would be, but I’m sure it’s going to be a great one. Instead of asking who the right one is, why not work on becoming the right one for him? These are just tips. It’s up to you if you would follow them. 🙂
