Scottish comedian Daniel Sloss, on his show Jigsaw, challenges society’s pressure to “find your soul mate if you’re alone, you’re missing”
“I know there are more mature audiences among you who listen to a 26-year-old like me talk about love and relationships. They’re probably saying:
‘Daniel, you’re so young, you’re so naïve, you’re so cynical. I know, honey, because I was like you. I used to believe the same thing when I was your age. I’d say there’s absolutely no such thing as love. And then I met him. We’ve been together ever since. It was a long journey, it was hard, but we struggled because we loved it. Because that’s what you’re wrong about, Daniel. It takes effort and effort, but it’s worth it. I understand, Daniel, I know why you feel this way, but one day you’ll find true love and I can’t wait for you to find it.’
If that’s how you feel, I hope you’re right. I want to be somebody’s husband, I want to be a father more than anything. Because if you’re not right, if you’re wrong; Another possibility is that when you were my age, you were so afraid of being alone that you forced yourself to love someone.”
“There are 7.5 billion people in the world, and you found your soul mate 20 miles from where you live? Sounds like a big coincidence to me!”
I sincerely say that 80% of the relationships in the world and therefore in this room are. Some people didn’t spend any time learning to be alone, they didn’t learn how to love themselves, so they gave it to someone else.”
“55% of marriages end in divorce. Relationships that start before the age of 30 also end 99 percent of the time. No one would be at risk if these were surgical statistics… I’m not saying love is impossible to find. All I’m saying is you can’t find it statistically.”
sloss, without loving himself; So to speak, he gives advice to people who are worried that he can’t find his soul mate without finding his own soul.
“you must learn to love yourself before you let someone else love you. That’s what I’m talking about. It’s not wrong to be single, to be alone. It’s not wrong to take the time to find out who you are before you start dating someone, because if you don’t know who you are, how do you show what you have?”
“If you only love 20 percent of yourself, someone can come and love your 30 percent.” Wow, that’s too much.’ But it’s literally less than half. If you love yourself 100 percent, someone who falls in love with you needs to do more than necessary to make you feel special.”
Finally, let me leave a sentence that I like
“The worst thing you can do in life is to spend it with the wrong person.”
(daniel sloss did this show in 2018. if you are wondering about the current relationship status of the man, let me tell you right away, he kneeled down and proposed to his lover last month … you too brutus.
