Of course I just had to read, and share! Nollywood actress and activist, Uru Eke, has written on what life is like for the single 30+ single woman in Nigeria. She has also shared 5 coping tips for women in this 'space'. #read #enjoy #comment.
The big 30 is symbolic with women all over the world. You find that at about that time of life, a female would have completed her education and settled into a career path.
You will also find that there is a heightened level of self-awareness; she knows who she is and what she wants. There will also be several levels of success recorded – both perceived and actual – because life will always serve each one a different buffet to pick and work with.
However, there is one thing that remains constant for a female of that age, irrespective of her race, religion and ethnicity, it is that the
The dating market is also very hostile. A lot more guys may prefer to be with ladies who are under 30 – although there are still some brothers out there that want their women mature.
I’m such an advocate for exercise, because it really and truly shaves off a few years. While there is quite some awareness on how to stay young forever today, with fit fams, veg fams etc, she knows that when she looks in the mirror, a few things may have shifted, appeared or expanded compared to 5-10 years ago. It’s only natural and nothing to be ashamed of.
A positive outlook and approach is more likely to birth something positive. Speak what you want into existence, imagine the life that you want and that’s what the universe will deliver to you. I have heard some ladies suddenly conclude that true love doesn’t exist anymore. Life may have taken them to that point, but I say this, ‘Stay positive’.
There are other aspects to a fulfilled life, self development and spirituality for instance. These profitable ventures are worth your pretty mind. Do not be pre-occupied with only thoughts of love, marriage or men – they will wear you out.
Letting yourself go is an absolute travesty at any point, needless to say that for the one seeking a better half, this cannot be over-emphasised. Be the best version of you. Chin up and stay beautiful
Be a Social Butterfly
At a sensible level, go out, meet new people, become a part of the community in ways that interest you. This is not targeted at finding a romantic partner solely, but also to make valuable friends and acquaintances.
Be thankful for the life that you have and all that you are blessed with. You need to find happiness and contentment from what already exists in your life. Guess what? life will never be entirely perfect but you can make the most of it.
