*Cue Destiny’s Child* All the women, who independent, throw your hands up at me. All the honeys, who making money, throw your hands up at me.
Sometimes as a woman (especially if you’re over 30) it’s easy to gloss over everything you’ve accomplished in life — finding a career you enjoy, evolving as a person, developing deep friendships, making an impact in your community, eating well, staying fit — if you still haven’t attained a romantic relationship.
And the world will certainly validate you on that front. From well-meaning family who ask why you’re still single, to your married friends who think you should “try matchmaking or speed dating! It could be fun!!” … the silent implication is often “your relationship status needs to be fixed.” And when it feels like you need fixing, that makes you feel a little broken.
On this month’s interview with an expert, Rachel sits down with Shani Silver, the host of A Single Serving Podcast. Shani spent 10 years being single and miserable until she made a profound shift and started deeply enjoying her life. They got into…
- Why your relationship status isn’t something that needs “fixing.”
- How Shani got off dating apps completely, and why she’s a big advocate for you deleting them, too.
- How to get off the rollercoaster of hope and disappointment when it comes to dating and relationships.
- Why enjoying being single is actually the best way to attract a real, healthy relationship (if that’s what you want).
This episode is NOT just for single people! Maybe you’re happily partnered but your career remains that one thing you just can’t make happen, or maybe your career is solid but your body image is shaky … apply Shani’s wisdom to whatever that sticky, stubborn thing is that you wish were different.
After you’ve listened, leave us a comment below to share how Shani’s game-changing perspective landed with you!
