Being single is quite scary, especially for those who just got out of a long and serious relationship. Yes, it does get lonely at times but you know what? This can be the best time of your life! Instead of sulking and trying to find the next one, just embrace single-hood and enjoy it!
Now, if you are feeling weary, this article might just help you feel better about your single status.
You have unlimited “me” time.
Now that you have all the time in the world for yourself, you can find new hobbies, go shopping all day, binge-watch all the series and movies that you like without considering if your significant other approves. Who says that you can’t take yourself out on a date? Even if you are single, you can still pamper yourself and buy yourself some flowers, right?
You are in charge of your own happiness.
Like what I said earlier, you can do whatever you want without considering your significant other’s opinion. Now that you are single, you can really do anything and everything that makes YOU happy. It’s that time when you can put yourself first above anything or anyone else.
You can do you.
Sometimes, a partner hinders you from acting true to yourself or dream big dreams. Now, no one’s gonna stop you to go crazy and chase after your dreams. No one’s going to tell you to stop acting the way you are acting because maybe, just maybe… it embarrasses them. (Who does that?! Good thing you guys broke up.) Bottomline is, you can become someone and do something without a partner’s approval.
You’ll stress less and sleep better.
Oh yes, those love quarrels can be very stressful and the reason of your sleepless nights. This time, you don’t have to stress out over relationship problems anymore you can now sleep soundly at night.
You get to spend more time with family and friends.
We’ve all been there before, when you’re in a relationship, you just prefer to spend more time with your partner and have less time for your friends and family. So take this opportunity to bond with your family and rekindle friendships.
You get to save more money.
Anniversary gifts? Birthday gifts? Random surprises? Movie dates? Dinner dates? Being in a relationship is expensive! Now you don’t have to worry about that anymore.
You learn how to become independent.
It’s time to learn how to do things independently. It’s a big change especially for the newly single ones but trust me, it’s a rewarding experience. You’ll be surprised what you are capable of.
Cheers to all the strong, independent, happy and single individuals out there!
