There are people out there who believe that single people are sad, lonely, and miserable. Their definition of happiness and fulfillment is having a partner by their side. However, even though there are people who are in happy and loving relationships, there are also people who are in unhappy relationships but who refuse to break up because they would rather be with someone who treats them badly than be on their own.
Being single is not a bad thing. It will give you new perspectives, you will become more independent, and it is better to be single than settle for someone who doesn’t deserve you. Plus, when you are all by yourself, that’s when you learn the most valuable lessons.
You learn how to become truly independent and self-sufficient.
You will learn how to have fun and be happy with yourself. Eating alone, sleeping alone, shopping alone, going to movies alone, walking alone… you will learn how to do all these things without feeling awkward and then, you will embrace them and you will feel truly happy doing things on your own. Something that you would have never learned in a relationship. You will grow and embrace your independence which in turn will give you a true feeling of freedom and joy.
You learn self-awareness.
You will be more aware of who you really are as a person, the people you want to have in your life, the life you want to live, and all the things about yourself that you need to improve in order to become the person you aspire to be. You will also be more self-aware and careful when it comes to your decisions and choices because you will only rely on you and this will give you a sense of power and control over your life.
You learn that you are all you need.
You are the only person that can make you happy. You are responsible for your life and happiness. And you are enough. You don’t need a date to go out and have a good time. You don’t need someone to make you feel valuable. You know your worth and what you deserve. And you also learned how to take good care of yourself and refuse to settle for anything or anyone that doesn’t make you happy.
You learn what you want in a relationship.
Like attracts like, so when you are in a happy and calm place in your life, you will attract someone that will match your energy. Someone who has their life together like you. Someone who is mature, self-sufficient, independent, kind, loving, and immensely passionate about life. Someone just like you.
