the ultimate freedom..
AMEN…I could add a few…but it’s too early in the morning
SINGLES ROCK THE WORLD OUT THERE!
I know I will…You can watch what you want. The remote belongs to you.
No but then there’s no one to hug you or anything that’s the downside that I see
You learn to love yourself better while you’re single. You’re allowed to treat yourself. You learn more about yourself. You can figure out exactly what you want and need in another person and go searching whenever you’re ready. You learn to take care of yourself rather than someone else at the same time.
Then you realize you’re almost 40 and still single - then it gets scary
There are no perks to being single. It’s almost always lonely and there is nothing to that. This is the stuff single people say to make themselves feel better. Tbh, I hate it and would like a bf right now.
I actually think there ARE perks of being single, but it completely depends on the way you look at it.
For whatever reason, we seem to view being single as such a negative thing. We associate it with loneliness and being seen as undesirable/unwanted and all other manner of not so nice things. But I don’t think this is truly what being single means. You’ve got to stop looking at it as if it’s such a bad thing. Don’t think to yourself “oh being single is so shit”. Don’t tell yourself “I need somebody to be happy”. No you don’t. You just need to look at it in a better light. Just think to yourself what you can accomplish whilst being on your own. It gives you time to truly get to know yourself and gives you the opportunity to do whatever is necessary to make you a happier you. You can treat yourself. Challenge yourself. Do things at your speed, your way. You’ll learn that you don’t NEED someone to depend on.
I’ve been single for nearly 3 years now, and I used to HATE it. I used to think that being in a relationship was the key to my happiness and would help me deal with all my problems. But I realised that I couldn’t just depend on the idea of “someone”. It wasn’t realistic. I started to make little changes to my lifestyle: getting a good sleeping pattern, doing my best to keep on top of my university work, changing my diet so it was healthier. I’m just a few weeks into this new regime and I already feel so much more in control of my life than I have done in a long time. I’m happier and have more energy and confidence and this is ALL without being in a relationship. And for once I’m actually not looking for someone. I’ll put myself out there when I’m ready :)
