It’s not shameful to admit when you’re not ready to see someone, it could be because of a number of reasons and past-experiences. We all like the idea of being with someone, spending those memorable moments with someone, moving on in life with someone by our side, but not all of us are ready to commit. This article is going to talk about certain conditions, certain states of mind when people should not date and take time out for themselves to make themselves better.
It happens to the best of us. Happened with me, happened with a lot of my friends. It’s a difficult phase but the first step is to acknowledge it. Here are 8 reasons why you don’t need to be in a relationship right now. Let’s begin:
8. You recently came out of a relationship
This is the first and most important one of them all. If you just recently came out from a relationship, you need to give yourself some time. A lot of damage had been done and it takes months to properly heal yourself and not fall back into those dark memories and the sorrows of loss that come with them. Take time out for yourself, be with family, hang out with friends. Don’t jump the relationship wagon so soon, you won’t be able to give your 100% to someone and that won’t be fair to them at all. Only when you completely love yourself again is when you can finally date someone with everything you’ve got.
I was with someone like this once. The memories of her past relationship still kept haunting her and no matter how hard I tried, it didn’t work out in the end. Don’t be that person to someone, don’t give them a trauma because of your past. Save your energy and use it when you’re ready.
