Pinky is the new middle!

Yes, people are showing their self-love by gifting themselves cute rings for pinky fingers, showing independency from the need of any partners whatsoever.
It is not, evidently, to repel people interested in them but for only having felt a mild sense of love for themselves, not feeling bad to see their ring fingers empty.
As much as the dating culture is common, it is one hell of a task to find the right person who you could proudly say is worthy of promising your whole life to. It is possible and people do find the Mr. /Ms. Correct but it takes time. For people spending that time while their friends and co-workers are getting engaged and showing off those rocks on their fingers, this cute trend of pinky ring fingers has caught fire.
Tired of feeling bad for yourself after seeing half a dozen girlfriends engaged? Do not lose hope for you are exclusive enough to have your time of the life. For now, rock it with the pinky finger to tell the world that you are not desperate but only, deeply, in love with yourself.

The trend of wearing a little ring in the little finger is, exactly, to keep those wild, destructive feelings away and make us feel good. Whoever came up with it knew how it felt to be the one left out’ in a group of people committed to their significant halves. They knew that life is more than just about trying to find the right person all the time and forgetting oneself in doing so. – Continue reading on the next page
We need people to share ourselves with, yes, but not loving ourselves in pursuit of such secondary love is just cruel. Self-love is primary and should be the first priority. People who already have a ring on their middle finger of the left hand also need to get another one for their pinky fingers to remind themselves that no matter what happens, their self-love and self-support will never run out and they can be the solution to anything life throws at them.
The absence of self-worth in people is what triggered this concept. We spend more time than needed in looking for someone to be best friends with and to completely rely on when what we should be doing, instead, is finding ourselves over the course of time before we meet our S.O. Like is good, love is beautiful and having somebody around to share our lives with feels wonderful but there are times when we literally have nobody around us. You must have felt that loneliness at least once in your life.
This ring, worn on the pinky finger as a symbol of self-love, is to remind you of things in times just like that; things that include your importance in the world, the single role your life plays in constituting the universe and you being one tiny, just like the ring, but existing, part of all the matter in the universe. Your presence makes a difference and so would your absence.
When it comes to being worthy of love, we all deserve some of it. A ring on your middle finger should not define your worthiness of love but only remind you that you have someone who loves you. Likewise, while there is no ring on the middle finger, you can put one on the pinky to remind yourself that while there is no other person, you have got you. Call it consoling or call it boasting; either way it is made to help you get over your feelings of self-doubt.
A ring can only do so much, therefore, while you adorn it, make sure you are building a positive attitude along with a trend because that is what it is all about. Whenever you feel like worthlessness creeping in after seeing your friends flaunt their engagement rings, look at your own ring on your pinky and lift your head up and keep your confidence.
More than love, we have hatred, frustration and what not taking over our lives in this increasingly pressurizing world. Whoever had this idea of promoting self-love via a ring on a finger knew how little things can change our minds and opinions and bring about a positive change. For the functionality of this trend and the practicality of it, people are following it.
It is not mandatory but necessary that you get one for yourself because even if you are not eager to meet your significant other and seeing engaged people does not make you sad, you need some self-love and that’s all it provides.
