Here are ten crucial facts to remind yourself when you’re stressed out about being single:
Love can never be forced
You might try finding someone on every dating app possible. You might try asking random friends to hook you up with someone good. And you might even resort to flirting with random guys/girls in a bar in the hopes that it will turn into something amazing.
Yes, it’s true that for some people, these tricks might work out and they might end up finding the love of their life. But for the majority, it’s highly probable that all you’ll get out of this are a few casual dates and nothing more. The truth is that love can never be forced. And the only time it will find you is when you will stop actively searching for it in every new person you meet.
Being in a relationship is never going to magically fix all your problems
A lot of us enter into a relationship in the hopes that it will turn out to be the one thing that we were always looking for, the one thing that will make us forget all our troubles, and the one thing that will fill our life with color and happiness.
While this can be true in many cases, what needs to be understood is that a relationship requires a lot of patience, strength and courage. It requires resilience and it requires you to place actual time and effort into making it something beautiful. Don’t expect a relationship to be the solution to all your problems, but work towards making your relationship a way of forgetting the stress and tensions of your life.

Have you seen that couple- the one that is always fighting, the one that is always driving each other crazy for no reason at all, and the one that is clearly unhappy but still stuck in this disgrace to a relationship? Would you rather be alone or be in a relationship like that?

Sometimes, it’s better to stay alone than to stick it out with a person who doesn’t truly love you, a person who is never completely there for you, and a person who isn’t capable of making you happy. It’s better to know your worth than to settle with someone who doesn’t even deserve you. - Continue reading on the next page
