If you’re reading this, you’re probably old enough to know that the Hollywood hot pink kind of love that you see in movies is a far cry from reality. Relationships don’t always end in happy ever after. Love doesn’t come to people as easily as they portray it to. Relationships take a lot of work and are huge pains in the butt. A lot of times, relationships can end up being incredibly toxic and emotionally damaging to the people involved in them. Bad relationships can burn bridges faster than anything else in life.

Destructive relationships have the potential to inflict deep emotional and psychological wounds that may take a very long time to heal. The sad thing is, many people are too afraid of being alone and what being alone means for their reputation. The fear of being single ends up forcing their hands into a relationship that they don’t deserve. They end up thinking that being in any kind of relationship is better than being alone no matter how toxic the relationship is.

That’s not always the case. Here are some of the top reasons why being single is a lot better than being in a toxic relationship:

1. Being in a toxic relationship is bad for your health; being single gives you the opportunity to take care of yourself.

It’s simple science really. Studies have shown that being in bad relationships can be potentially destructive to a person’s overall health. When you’re constantly finding yourself emotionally and physically abused in a relationship, it’s obvious that these experiences don’t help your well-being at all. You’re constantly left spiritually drained, unable to go on with life, because most of your energy is devoted to keeping a toxic relationship going.

If you are constantly being undervalued in a relationship, then you end up undervaluing yourself as a person. You forget about your self-worth and you no longer care about your own well-being. You might start letting your physical and mental health go, and no one else can possibly help fix it for you.

When you’re single, you’re given the chance to assess yourself on your own accord. You can evaluate how you are as a person and whether or not you’re living up to your full potential. You can pay attention to your body and what it demands from you. You are solely in charge of taking care of only yourself and you have absolutely no one else to worry about. All of your focus is diverted to your own well-being and you can really spend some time building yourself up to becoming the best possible version of yourself. - Continue reading on the next page
