'I feel like leaving Mumbai'
Dear Diana, I'm 28 and single. All my friends are either married or having kids.
It’s like my life is just passing by and I can’t do anything about it. I haven’t even fallen in love with anyone other than a girl in college. But I never mustered up enough courage to speak to her. I often feel like leaving Mumbai and moving to a new place to start all over again.
Good heavens! You are only 28 and you are behaving as if it is all over for you. Just because all your friends are married, does not mean that you too should be married by now. Love and marriage will happen. You can tie the knot at 30 or 32 or 34. Nowadays most guys tie the knot when they are almost 30. Whoever told you that you are too old for marriage? You seem to be wallowing in self-pity. Get out of the self-created shell. Life is what you make of it. You have to make the most of the situation. Learn to be happy with what you have. Remember there are zillions out there worse off than you. And moving places won’t solve your problem. You have to change your mindset first.
Diana will solve it!
