You will love being single, you will love not having to talk to anyone or do anything for a day, that you can do whatever you want because you are the master of your own life. But one day, you will realize that you want to be unselfish for someone, that you would rather have a lifetime with another soul than without; and that desire of being “free” that you so long held dear, will become a prison. Loving someone will start to be a freedom for you, and you will break all the chains of solitude that you once loved, just so you can experience the breathing process of loving another; this is when you know, that something within you has changed, and that you will never be the same.

For God so loved the world that He sent His one and only Son to die for your mean neighbor and your crazy roommate and the picketing bigot and the racist blogger and your gay friend and all the politicians and our crazy parents and the pastor down the street and the uptight religious folk and the girl at work you can’t stand, because Jesus didn’t just die for the people you like, but for people like you and me.
