How on earth do I stop feeling suicidal about being single?

I am brand new here...just joined tonight but I saw your message and I want to tell you that your concerns are the same as mine were. I am very much older now and way past even wanting to be in a relationship but when I look back at all the time I spent worrying that I would never find anyone, I realize that time was important to my future self.

Each one of those lonely days was a day I was growing stronger if only by the smallest, tiniest bit. I didn't know it then (and would have been really upset if anyone suggested I "enjoy" my time alone!) But, those days helped me to build a future life I would love. But first, I would end up having three marriages that ended in divorce (which had a great deal to do with my BPD, my thinking, and in choosing the men I did. I live alone now and simply can't imagine giving any of my time to a man (even if it was someone I loved.) So, try not to panic, you can't know how this time will impact your future years. And someday, you just might be glad you had this time.
Love this 🙂
