Society has definitely gotten way worse. Since phones left their cords and our homes, people have become so withdrawn. It is difficult to speak to people these days. Just saying a simple, "Hi, how are you?" seems to be very offensive now. What is going on today? How is someone weird for greeting a fellow human being? How is it a crime to want to have a nice sincere interaction every now and then with another person? Well, besides the lunatics making it hard for people to trust one another, socializing is in fact very normal and not weird at all.
I remember still having the rollers in my hair as I sat on my Mother's bed, telling her "Mom... I can't do it.." Her response made me feel so much better. It was so comforting. She simply was telling me something like it's ok don't do it if you don't want to. I could also sense the relief in her. I realized at that moment we both knew it just wasn't time for me to start a family or a life with someone yet.
I have had a few boyfriends and had sex outside of marriage, and have never been married yet. I have also wished that I really took my time and didn't fold under the pressure of knowing my boyfriend wanted to, and sleep with him simply because I called myself his girlfriend, knowing I wasn't ready. I rushed myself into a lifestyle I truly had no interest in because I didn't want to feel alone at the time. When I look back, I wish I could pull myself to the side and talk more sense into myself. Although I knew better, another in my face reminder probably would have prevented me from taking such risks and stopping me from behaving so absent-mindedly... So, with that said, letting everyone know I'm not judging anyone's decision, now I'll continue on with the article.
