Stop Giving Yourself Away To All The Wrong People – Wait For Someone Who Actually Cares


You are an intelligent, incredible, funny, amazing human being. You know how to take care of yourself. You are aware of your worth and you know exactly what you want from life.

So, please enlighten me, what exactly is your problem?

Why do you keep wasting your precious years on people who don’t even give you half of what you give to them?

Is it because you are used to this and deep down you actually crave it, or because you are simply too afraid to be on your own?

Listen, being alone is not bad. It does not mean that you are desperate, unlucky or too ugly to find a partner. Being single is not a curse and it’s definitely not something you should be terrified of.

If anything, singlehood is the most important phase in your life. Remember that. The time that you spend working on yourself is crucial to your future development as a person. That time that you spend focusing on your needs, your wants and your dreams only cannot be compared to the time you spend on another person. Because it is sacred. Even the most passionate, all-consuming, fulling love could not compensate for the time that you spend on your own.

So, hear me out and listen well. Settling down for a mediocre life, shitty partners and ‘okay’ relationships is not the way you want to live your life. You might not see that right now, but eventually, you will find out. And when you do, it will be too late for anything.

I say, BE ALONE. Be alone until you gain the courage to dive deep inside your being, explore your soul and find out who you really are in this chaos of a world.  Experience the world on your own. Breathe in, breathe out and feel the freedom within your chest.

BE ALONE. Choose to stay single until the right person comes along. The one who will fall in love with your soul first. The one who will show you what unconditional love really means. The one who will accept you with all of your scars, flaws, and imperfections. The one who will believe in you even when you can’t find the strength to do it yourself.

BE ALONE. Stop settling for relationships that are not worth it. Stop devaluing yourself. Stop lying to yourself. Stop giving yourself away to all the wrong people. They don’t care about you. They will never ever love you the way that you can love yourself.

Be single until you finally learn that you are the most important person in your life. Be single until fate unravels everything that the future has in store for you. Be single until you find out what is your real purpose on this Earth.

You deserve more than you think you do. This life is too short anyways. It would be a shame to waste in on people that don’t help you grow.
