Reflection What are your impressions of Single Life? What TV shows/movies feature single people? What do these portrayals tell us about single life? Do you think it is a good life? Or not? What would be the best part of being single? What would be the most challenging part of being single?
Different ways of being Single Single Life is a broad term, as many people are technically single, but live very different kinds of lives. Examples:
Regardless of the kind of single life that is lived, that life can be a VOCATION - a life that touches the world with Gods love in powerful and meaningful ways.
Circumstantial Single Life Some people who are single never planned to be single – they didnt choose this life as their vocation and are open to other ways of living their lives (married or religious life). Even though it wasnt chosen, this life can be very meaningful and fulfilling – often in surprising ways.
Dedicated Single Life Some single people know that they do not want to live the religious life or married life. They choose to be single. Most of these people have another specific focus in their lives. Examples...
Importance of Friendship Good friends are important in any vocation. In Single Life, the main source of support is family and friends. Therefore, it is important to seek and create good, strong friendships that will last.
