Being single doesn’t mean you’re not worth it, it doesn’t mean you’re "weird", it doesn’t mean you’re never going to find love. Being single is a strength most of the world doesn’t understand. You should be single until you find someone who makes you understand what love really is. It’s better to be single than to be with someone who just ends up making you miss being single.
Being single is often thought of to be pathetic. It must mean that there’s something wrong with you if you can’t manage to be in a relationship. Maybe you’re just not that good looking. Perhaps you have a crappy personality that no one can handle. Either way, you’re a very flawed person and that’s why love continues to elude you.
Don’t believe such lies. There’s nothing wrong with being single. People in relationships have no higher ground. It just means that they were lucky enough to find someone they’ve managed to mesh well with. In fact, a lot of the relationships you see around you right now, a lot of them aren’t going to last. These people might end up finding their ways back into the single life sooner than any of you think. And that’s not a bad thing at all.
Being single means that you take ownership for only one life: your own. Your responsibilities don’t extend beyond those that are expected of you. You only have to worry about your own body, your own finances, your own career, and your own social circles. You don’t inherit the problems, worries, and stresses of other people. You’re left to deal with just your own problems, and you know that you’re always up to the task.
Being single means you get to focus on yourself. You feel like dressing up on a Friday night, not because you want to look good for someone else, but because it makes you feel good inside to look so attractive. The morning after a night out, you get to make yourself breakfast. If you’re not up to cooking, you can just head out and buy something to eat at that local restaurant that you like. You don’t have to ask for anyone else’s permission. Your time and your eating habits are entirely your own.
Being single is a great opportunity for you to manage your time effectively. It grants you the chance to devote all the time in the world for your own personal dreams and pleasures. You could use your extra time to learn new hobbies or develop new skills. You can read lots of books, see lots of movies, and listen to loads of different music. Being single means that you’re a lone student, and the entire world is your classroom that you get to explore.– Continue reading on the next page
Being single means that you get to focus on your career and your personal ambitions. Being single means that you get a higher chance of achieving financial security because you’re only spending for yourself. Being single means that you only have your own career ladder to worry about. This is a phase in your life where you’re allowed, if not encouraged, to be selfish. You have to set a solid foundation for yourself to have a bright future. Being single allows you to chase after your dreams without any added weight from a relationship.
Being single doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re terrible at love; maybe you’ve just had a continuous string of bad luck. Being single isn’t as bad as people make it out to be, because then you’re left with the opportunity to just rise above the stigma of not being in a relationship with someone.
You have the chance to let people know that you’re comfortable in your own independence and that you don’t let being in a relationship define your self-worth. You get to prove to yourself and others that your happiness doesn’t rest solely on being in a relationship with someone. You can let people know that you’re an amazing individual as is, and that anyone would be lucky to have you if they only make the time and effort to get to know you more.
Being single means that you’re still finding yourself and you’re in a stage of self-discovery that everyone needs to go through. Being single means that you have expectations for yourself that you just haven’t met yet. It means that you’re still trying to figure yourself out.
It means that you’re still in the process of trying to discover what you want out of life and relationships. You’re smart enough to know that in order for a relationship to work, you have to know what you want to get out of it.
You have to know where you are in life and where you’re going. A lost individual will never manage to survive being in a relationship. You have to have a sense of direction for yourself and for your partner. You’re not exactly at a place where you feel like you’ve gotten everything set yet, and that’s okay.
Take your time. Love will come for you eventually; when you’re ready, when you allow it to enter your heart. For the meantime, the only person that is deserving of your undivided love and attention is yourself. And that should be okay.
