As I got used to being in a relationship, I thought that being alone again would be the worst thing, that it would be too hard to bear, something I didn't want to live it ever again, because I've been there once and I desperately wanted to be in a relationship, I've had enough of being alone. We all long for this need not only to be loved and accepted, but to love as well. Only the choice isn't to be single or taken, but to choose the right one, and when it's the right time, you might as well enjoy being single. Because first as we've been always told, if you can't be happy on your own, you won't be happy in a relationship, and then because there's a lot you need to live, alone!
Below are some things you got to know about being single if you don't know the worth of it:
1- The world is yours:
You no more have to explain yourself to anyone, you don't have to worry about what someone else is doing and no one is going to ask you what you're doing. You get to feel free to do whatever you want!
2- You won't feel guilty about flirting:
To have some guy friends and to hang around with him some time would feel surprisingly good, at least because you used to feel guilty about it when you were in a relationship.
3- You get more time for your friends and family:
You'll get to go out often with your friends and catch with them more. You'll get to make new friends and cherish your relationship with them, which is something you didn't get to have time for it before, or shall I say you didn't give it a piece of mind before! And then you might as well feel regret for losing your friends and spending less time with them and with your family for something, let me say, wasn't supposed to be that important.
4- You get to know yourself better:
Since you'll be doing what you love to do, making your own choices and decisions without having to consider anyone else, you'll get to know yourself better. You'll get to know what you like, what you want to dream about...
You'll feel as if you have been blinded, lost and now you're thinking straighter, you're finding yourself again, bit by bit, only a better self this time. And there, you'll happiness, a true one, a one that doesn't take a lover.
5- You'll learn to enjoy your own company:
You'll find out that happiness doesn't mean a relationship. It's rather something that comes from within you. You'll get then to enjoy your own company and your own life.
6- No more arguments:
As much as love feels good, it sometimes can make a hell out of your life with all the arguments and the stressing, and to be single means more peace in your life. Life will become much simpler, it'll be easier for you to cheer up without the strings that used to be around your heart.
7- You'll make everyday count:
Your life view would be different. If being with your partner used to make your day, now doing something inspiring and productive will be the new notion of what makes the day count! After all we're more productive when we're single, then when we're drowned into our fantasies and daydreams about love.
This is from a movie, I needed to watch, “How to be single”: ” I’ve been thinking that the time we have to be single is really the time we have to get good at being alone. But how good being alone do we really wanna be? Isn’t there a danger that you’ll get so good at being single, so good at setting in your ways that you miss out on the chance to be with somebody great?
Some people take baby steps to settle down, some people refuse to settle down at all. Sometimes it’s not statistics, it’s just chemistry, and sometimes just because it is over doesn’t mean the love ends.
The thing about being single is you should cherish it because in a week or a lifetime of being alone you may only get one moment… One moment when you’re not tied up in a relationship with anyone. A parent, a pet, a sibling, a friend, one moment when you stand on your own… Really truly single. And then, it’s gone.”
