Do you feel like the world is a very different place from the way it was a short week ago? You’re not alone. How are you feeling about it?
That might seem like a funny question to ask, but there are a lot of different people in the world and a lot of different feelings coming up right now. Some are feeling worried; either about their families, about their jobs, their own health or about staying at home for so long because they like to be out and active and social. Some are feeling angry, because they had a lot of very important plans coming up, and now they’re either postponed or cancelled all together.
Some are feeling sad, thinking about all the people who are being adversely affected, the illnesses and the losses, and the economic repercussions. Worry, anger, sadness … isn’t it fascinating that there are so many different ways to feel about the same circumstance?
Start With Your Own Feelings
It really is amazing to realize that pretty much everyone in the entire world is experiencing the same circumstance. So if it’s the same, how is it possible that people are having different feelings? Even though it seems like your feelings are dependent on something that happens – a circumstance – in truth, every feeling you have starts with your thought about that circumstance.
Are you feeling worried right now? What are you thinking? Are you thinking about the health of your friends and loved ones? Are you thinking about how your job might be, or has already been, affected? Perhaps you’re simply wondering how long this period of staying at home will last. Thoughts about uncertainty will generally lead to feeling worried.
Here’s something else you might be thinking that many people are not talking about openly, and I’d like us to be honest with each other.
Are you feeling sad or frustrated because you’re thinking about dating and wondering how long this is all going to last, and wondering if you’ll lose your momentum on the dating scene, and you don’t know how to broach this topic with people? Are you feeling bad because you think you shouldn’t be thinking about it? It’s perfectly natural to still be thinking about dating. Circumstances changed, you didn’t. You are still a woman who has a deep desire to create an enriched romantic relationship – a fulfilling relationship with a quality man.
You are not wrong, you are not selfish, you are not alone. You are in the prime of your life and you have the right to experience joy and love in a relationship that feeds you in multiple ways.

You Can Feel Better and Create the Relationship You Desire!
Are the feelings you are feeling right now serving you? Are they feelings that enable you to get out of bed in the morning and do something meaningful with your time and energy? Even if you’re not at work are you being productive at home? And yes, reading that stack of books you promised yourself you’d read someday counts as productive. Or are you spending a lot of time watching or reading the news or talking to people about the news, or scrolling through Facebook reading other people’s opinions about the news?
While it’s important to be well-informed, soaking in reams of news is not conducive to creating feelings that will serve you. News headlines are constructed to shock us into paying attention. It’s their job, and they do it quite well, don’t they? For 24 hours, 7 days a week.
If you’re taking in information that is intended to shock you you are probably having thoughts about it that are leading you to feel shocked. That’s right – it’s the thoughts you’re thinking about the news that are leading you to feel shocked – not the news itself.
Is there a way you can feel well-informed without bingeing on news for hours at a time? Can you choose one trusted news source and decide you’ll only check its main page once or maybe twice a day? If you trust it, you can probably trust that the information it’s providing is correct and updated properly – and this will leave you with much more time and energy to put toward making a dating plan for yourself.
Yes, Even Now, You Can Have a Fulfilling Relationship With a Quality Man!
