While having a partner can add colors to life, it's not always necessary. Happiness is independent of a relationship. It's absolutely fine to be single until you find the right one. Desperate decisions can lead to toxic relationships. Here's why it's great to be single:
1. You can invest in yourself
When you have a life partner, your priorities change. No matter how much you respect each other's privacy, some things will always be shared.
When you're with a partner, you have to share your time with them. Being single gives you the perfect opportunity to work on yourself.
You have a chance to invest undivided attention on whatever you want. Wanted to start a business? Wanted to learn a new musical instrument? Wanted to work on your physique? Being single gives you the perfect opportunity to do all that you want.
2. You have more time for your friends
This goes without saying, when you have a partner, you'll have to rethink your priorities. You might not be able to meet your friends as often as when you're single.
Make the most of this time. Strengthen your bond with your friends. When you have a great group of friends, there are high chances that you won't look for a partner in desperate search of happiness.
3. Your happiness depends on no one
There is freedom in individuality. You don't have to look out for others to make you happy. Those whose happiness is reliant on others will never be at peace.
Being single provides you the perfect opportunity to be happy on your own. There's a strange power in solitude. You also have a higher chance of finding a partner if you're happy without one.
When people see you happy, they want to associate themselves with you. Trust me; no one wants a partner who needs constant attention to be satisfied.
4. You have the power to choose
If you get rid of desperation, you'll have the power to choose your partner. You meet lots of people when you're single. If you remain calm and composed, you can see clearly who makes you happy and who likes unnecessary drama.
You should only be with someone if they magnify the happiness. If you search for happiness in your partner, the chances are that the relationship will end up in havoc.
If someone disrupts your peace, trust me, you should never see them as a potential partner.
5. You have time to self-reflect
Whether you agree or not, your partner influences your life. When you are single, you have lots of independent time to reflect upon your life.
Whether you wish to change careers or strategize your life or even wish to plan for the future, being single is the perfect time to do it. Being single allows you the liberty to steer your life in whichever direction you want.
Being single is great if you perceive it the right way. It is better to be alone than to date the wrong person. In the end, know that your happiness is your responsibility. Only commit yourself to someone who adds positivity to your life. Enjoy the time being single, and never settle for less than you deserve.
