Women tend to obsess over finding a boyfriend or husband as if it’s fundamental to a meaningful existence. Having a great partner can surely help, but it cannot give you lasting happiness in life.

Here’s what can give you lasting happiness and fulfillment without wasting so much time trying to find a man:

Set new challenges for yourself

Complacency is death. Set new challenges for yourself. When you waltz past those goals, try and set new ones. You should keep pushing the boundaries of what you can do. Keep rediscovering your strengths.

Carve out a career

Don’t do any drudgery. Do something you love. Build a career based on what you love. Go out there and express your creativity. There’s no point holding back; unleash your creative ideas in your chosen area of endeavor.

Live life on your own terms

You shouldn’t just live life as if you are there to make others happy. Instead, try to live life on your own terms.  It could be hanging out with friends, eating and drinking all you want and expressing your feelings openly. Do it all!

Get in touch with new people

New people are like a breath of fresh air. Keep finding ways to get in touch with new people. You never know who you might run into. You could make new friends. You may get a new life coach or maybe the love of your life. In short, don’t let go of any opportunity to meet new people.

Make new friends

Boys are good company on happy occasions, but friends are for every season. Don’t you think you need more of them? Go ahead and make more friends. Strengthen your old friendships and keep making new ones!

Travel and go beyond your dull routine

Travel introduces us to ourselves, our secret desires and our deeper inclinations.  So make sure you get away even on a weekend. You should definitely steal a week once in a while to travel and go beyond your usual dull routine.

Strengthen your mental health

Those who are mentally strong can take on the world. You should learn how to strengthen your mind. Whether through yoga or meditation, you should try whatever works for you. The goal should be to acquire great mental health.

Don’t let the mystery die

Most people treat themselves like a Mathematical sum; they want to solve everything about themselves, but you should let the mystery remain. Soak in the mystery and let the wonder remain. Life is not a sum to be solved but a mystery to be lived through!

Deepen the bond with your parents

As a teenager, whatever was your impression about them should not be the final one. Now as an adult, you should allow them a place in your life and heart. If you give it a thought, they are more like friends, ready to help you at all times and worrying only about you.  Give it a thought and let them in!

Start loving yourself

Love yourself. Buy yourself the most expensive gifts. Spoil yourself. If you don’t love yourself, who will? Soak yourself in self-love!

Enjoy yourself

If you can enjoy yourself, by yourself. You can be happy in any situation in any part of the world. You are the only person who knows what delights you and what doesn’t. So have fun!

As you can see, there’s more to life than merely finding a man or a husband. I hope you will look beyond and find your goals and fulfill them too!
