The SAA’s sharing on Festivals
Festive seasons are great times for family and friends to celebrate with lots of eating, gift-giving and more eating.
However, at every gathering, I am bound to be fielded questions about my love life, especially when I am an SAA – single and available. Luckily, I am a Toastmaster and I can put my impromptu speaking skills into practice. Whenever someone asks when will I be getting married, my instant reply is: ‘when I find somebody worthy of me’. This will be followed with a few points in the body of my speech about that “imaginary somebody” and a “happy” conclusion.
I request all my relatives and friends, to stop asking me this stale question: when will I be getting married. You will know when that happens, trust me. I will inform you myself. To all SAAs who face this situation, don’t worry too much, we all progress through life at our own pace.
Just remember, festivals are times to celebrate with love, style and fanciful clothes, not the time to let others make you feel uncomfortable and distressed.
