    Being single does not have to mean pain and humiliation

    “Oh, yes, it does!”, your Mom (and Dad, and siblings, and aunts, and uncles, and cousins, and friends, and that lady in the diner)

    I used to know an elderly Scots lady who told me that when her mom died she realised she was nearly forty and had no one and nothing special in her life, having spent her youth at home looking after her parents. She told me that she knew she had a choice: she could become embittered and take it out on everyone, OR she could realise that she had no ties, total freedom and could do as she liked! Next thing she knew she had upped sticks and moved to Argentina…spent several years there and then moved to Spain…then back to Britain when she retired.

    Only for a short while – when they all get divorced then it changes to – oh you’re lucky you don’t have to go through THAT.

    After a while, you become numb (most of the time) to being alone.
    I have my dog to hug. That helps. (Most of the time.)

    In case it helps to know, I (speaking for myself) don’t see your cartoon as humiliating you. I see it as an empowered voice that speaks for a lot of people who struggle through the same feelings you’re facing. Life isn’t always easy. Creating something like this strip is actually hard. You have a right to feel proud of your self and of what you do!

    I can understand your predicament since I am in one similar only I’m 59 which adds to it. I know why but it does not good.

    Snide remarks only matter if you let them. There’s an old saying about ‘living well is the best revenge’ that was invented for stuff like this. Single people who have at least a bit of money can decide where to go on vacation without anyone else insisting that it be their choice, for example. A single person able to afford a housing choice can decide where she or he wants to live without worrying about whether it allows a significant other to have easy access to a huge backyard for a grill, or easy access to the rest of the family, or what…
