There are a few voices that dominate and lead the conversations on sexual dispositions of the culture. Living a healthy celibate life as a single is not one of them.
The Socrates of our culture silently whispers, “A chaste life isn’t worth living,” and goads us to believe that lie. It is easy to internalize such sentiments along with good desires for oneness in flesh that are, for whatever reason, not fulfilled.
After wrestling with subject over the past decade, I have come to the conclusion that it is possible to be healthy and thrive in singleness. At least to me, the answers to the question of how to deal with unwanted singleness did not come readily. Here are some ways that God has provided for me that I have found to be indispensable in this life stage. If you are in the same boat, or if you are married and willing to walk with someone in their journey, I hope this might be a starting point.
