I’m saddened by the epidemic of narcissism that we see these days. It’s not easy to witness acts of true kindness anymore as people like to help with the goal of receiving something in return: validation, praises, sex, money, etc.
As an hopeless romantic, I find the dating scene brutal – singles are trying to get as much as they can from their new love interests; people entertain relationships which serve themselves only, and they do not hesitate to swipe online for possible backups. Sadly, cheating seems to be the norm.
Christianity is saving me from all this nonsense, and I have hope to find true love in the mess, because I know God is good.
I am so thankful for God’s protection – he saved me from dating some unhealthy men during the last two years. I’ve realized lately, how easy it is to develop feelings for people who aren’t good for us.
I know I still have some emotional traumas to heal from my childhood so I can be an healthy partner for my future husand. In the meantime, I will closely obey this warning from apostle Paul:
But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.2 Timothy 3:1-5
