I’ve always dreamed of a wedding. I thought I’d get married by 24; the same age as my mom when she got married. Here I am at 24, almost 25, still unmarried, single, and not ready to settle down.
There is this pressure from my family that I feel every time there is a family reunion and I’m like the only one with no partner. While I am completely fine with my relationship status, I can’t ignore the pressure that my family puts on my shoulders.
It’s just stressful to think that I might be running out of time. However, I’m not ready to get married. I’m not even sure if I’m ready to enter another relationship.
At this point in my life, I’m still working on myself. I’m happy with how my life is right now. Of course, I want to do more like go out, travel, and experience life, but most importantly grow as an individual.
I want to be able to live life without worrying too much about the future and about needing to find a partner as soon as possible.
While in my culture, 25 should be the age where you start thinking about settling down, I think this age is the time where you should go and live your life to the fullest.
