10 Crucial facts to remind yourself when you’re stressed out about being single

  1. It’s never okay to keep making excuses for someone

Just because you’ve been single for a long time doesn’t mean you should settle for just about anyone who comes along and shows some interest in you. If they’re rude to the waiter every time you go out to dinner, stop blaming it on the bad day they had at work. If they never contact you themselves, stop telling yourself that they’re just a little busier than you.

If all they ever want to discuss with you is their own life, their own interests, and their own hobbies without paying any attention to what you have to say, stop telling yourself that they’ll eventually change with time. Life is too short to keep making excuses for spending time with people who are not good for you.

And while you’re making excuses for this person and giving them second chances, the right person might just pass you by without even getting a single chance.

  1. You don’t need a boyfriend/girlfriend to make you feel complete

One of the sad realities of life is that the top reason why most people enter a relationship is because they feel empty, sad, or lonely and because they believe that a relationship will start making them feel differently. The truth is that no one in the world has the ability to make you feel complete except YOU!

And if you enter a relationship only with the hope of finally feeling fulfilled and complete, you might even end up feeling more incomplete and empty than you did before. Stop expecting a relationship to magically make you feel complete and start playing an active role in achieving that level of satisfaction yourself.
