We love to receive your emails and letters. Here’s this month’s favourite.
The February issue has to be one of the most enjoyable I’ve read. Being a single, 25-year-old woman, I could totally relate to writer and comedienne Corinne Fisher’s story ‘Calm down about my being single, please’. Society enforces the notion that if you’re single, you must feel lonely, forgetting that it’s perfectly possible to be lonely and unfulfilled in an intimate relationship, too. I especially loved the idea that, “being single isn’t better or worse than being in a relationship. It’s just different,” and I loved how she encourages women to stop measuring their own value according to whether you have a partner in your life or not. Let’s agree that we are all our own standard. After all, you amount to you. – Tshegofatso Mogotsi, via email
