Hey you, you’re deeply treasured by God. Don’t feel any less.
CAN YOU MARRY YOU?
Now, this is a question I’ve tried answering myself (would keep my answer personal for now) and i think you should too. But this isn’t me on duty today.
Just like you, I’m also here to learn with an excited mood. Shall we?
On to our amazing guest writer:
LOL! I laughed out loud because this question brings to mind the memories of a millennium. Well, literally not a millennium though…. I’m still as young as the morning.
First time I heard this was from a renowned motivational speaker and for a few days, I sulked at the thought of having some flaws that I didn’t think could amount to any good.
Things like being pragmatic, a ‘perfectionist’ so to say; an extrovert by day, introvert by night; expecting people to be good to me always…the list is endless.
So I started working hard at being less practical with my decisions, tried sooooo hard at being extroverted constantly and so on till i got overwhelmed and eventually gave up.
Here’s what I have decided after many years of mentorship and God’s dealings on wisdom.
NO, I CAN NOT MARRY ME.
Now this is not as a result of settling for less neither is it a statement of mediocrity, far from it. Instead, I’ll say that it is a realisation of what the ideal should be.
‘Diversity is the spice of life’ is a cliché we have all known since uterine life. How on earth can I decide to spend eternity with a mini or maxi me? I’ll be bored out of my skull
Why should I play God? Yes, it is this deep. I mean, the only wise God created Eve out of Adam. In all His wisdom, He did not create another Adam.
This means that even though I should have similarities with my spouse- in-faith, yes! Purpose, yes! Values, yes! yes! I am allowed to not be as romantic or extroverted as he would be.
So a thousand and one times, I do not want to marry me.
Thank you for coming to my TED talk

From Aymee (me): I’d rather marry one who is different from me, who is strong in areas I am weak….etc let’s keep the rest for later.
The Bible says:
As it is, however, God put every different part in the body just as he wanted it to be.
There would not be a body if it were all only one part!
As it is, there are many parts but one body.
1 Corinthians 12:18-20 GNT
And remember that we all are unique different kinds of beauty. I guess that’s my own answer.
Now on to you, can you marry you?
