One thing you should keep in mind: It’s better to be alone than being in a mediocre relationship. Some people want to have a partner in their life as they aren’t able to tolerate the fear of solitude. But that’s not an option. There are so many things you could do and also have fun without having a partner in your life.
It is interesting how time passes by, but we are still doing the same mistakes as before. Many people think that the only way of being happy is finding love partner. It seems that they aren’t aware that they can be happy alone rather than being in bad company. This can cause serious problems like emotional dependency which leads us into toxic relationships. Some people have so low self-esteem that need to have someone to love them.
1. You can learn to know yourself
It is very important to love yourself first to get anything done in this world. Once you began to love yourself, you would be able to free yourself of anything that is not good for your health-food, people, things, situations and anything that drags you away from yourself.
Remember, your life is a journey of learning to love yourself first which is a secret to happiness and then you would be able to share that love with others in every encounter.
2. Enjoy your time
Being single means that you could leave the house without giving explanations and keeping your partner informed because of being worried.
Being single gives you the opportunity of enjoying experiences that you aren’t able when you are with partner. You can have your own way of entertaining yourself and time only for yourself!
3. You can devote your life entirely to yourself
Sometimes it’s better to be alone, not to be lonely, but to enjoy free time being yourself. Make time to enjoy the simple things in life. For example, you can take a trip that you have always dreamed. It is only your decision.
4. You are much stronger now
If you have been in a long-term relationship, and suddenly you aren’t, you may feel hopeless for a while, but as time passes by you will become a much much stronger person that you were before.
Take note of all the benefits you have by being single. At times, being single has its own benefits, so don’t waste it.
5. You are more relaxed and sleep better
After long-term relationship, you may miss the hugs and long night talks, but look on the bright side. You can go to bed whenever you want, you can go wake up whenever you want without having to explain yourself to anyone. It may sound cold, but it’s a relief.
6. You will learn to value true friendship
Starting a relationship with someone can affect your friendship with your friends and even distance you from them, and some people keep doing this mistake.
If you are in relationship that doesn’t mean you have to spent 24 hours a day with your boyfriend/girlfriend and forget those friends who unconditionally supported you and spent quality time with you. Partners come and go, but friends will always stay beside you.
7. You allow yourself to meet new people
Being in relationship reduces you the possibilities of meeting new people and making new memories, while when you are single you can be with whoever you want without giving explanation to anyone.
As a couple you have your circle of friends, but as of being single you cant take time to travel, go to new places, live those experiences that you can’t enjoy as a couple and have fun with the freedom you have now.
You probably don’t want to be one of those people who end up in mediocre relationship just to be with someone as they fear of being alone.
You are single. Make the best of it. It doesn’t mean that you aren’t good enough for anyone, it just you haven’t found the one that is good enough for you. When you find the one you will know, so by then enjoy the benefits of being single.
