Being single and living your life on your own terms is one of the best thing you can give to yourself if you look at it in a positive light. You can do one thing to another without having to consider a certain plus-one. So, you don’t really have to feel blue if you’re the only single in the group. Instead, go out and chill. Nothing lasts forever, and that includes being single! But for the meantime, here are 5 reasons to feel good about it!
1. No Petty Fights To Cry About At Night
Oh yes. Absolutely. When you’re single, you can sleep soundly and peacefully at night. There’s no one to call and argue prior to sleeping. Fighting with your S.O (significant other) just before you hit the hay is emotionally exhausting. You witness some of your friends going crazy and couldn’t even get enough sleep because they were too disturbed with what’s going on in the relationship. They get distracted and paranoid. All those negative energy drains the life out of them. And that’s enough for you to be grateful about being single, right? No fights. No hassle. No nothing. *winks*
2. More Money In Your Wallet
Real Talk! This one’s true for almost everybody. You can have your hard-earned money all to yourself. You can splurge on food, clothing and your travels without worrying about saving up to buy gifts for anniversaries and over-the-top peace offerings for your S.O when he/she’s too upset to talk to you. *LOL*
No worries about spending a chunky amount of money for date nights and travels for two. You can literally spend everything on yourself whenever you want. Who wouldn’t enjoy a little pampering?
3. You Can Hang Out With Others Whenever You Want
This is the time when you see some friends who are forced to stay at home because their ‘bae’ isn’t too keen on the idea of them hanging out with other people. Sure, you don’t judge them for being submissive. However, you know that a human being should at least mingle with others to grow and to just relax a bit.
And that’s one good reason to be happy that you’re single. You can hang out with everyone. No need to ask permission from anybody. You can go clubbing, you can go on dates and night-out with friends. You can sign up on a dating app and meet several people whilst trying to see if they meet your standards. You can dress up and meet cute guys anytime you like and anywhere you fancy. Loads of Fun, huh?
4. You Decide Everything For Yourself
Want to travel this summer? Go, book that ticket and fly! When you’re single, you don’t have to ask an SO if he/she has any plans or if they’d even allow you to go. Being single means, you can just book a flight when you feel like it and go somewhere you can cool down and take a break from your busy schedule. You don’t have to worry about leaving your bae behind. You get to go places without anybody controlling you and checking on you every 2 hours. *yikes*
You get to decide what’s right and wrong for you without someone giving unsolicited advice. Heck, you even get to eat a whole box of pizza by yourself. You don’t have to share if you don’t want to. Pizza is love! *Laughs*
5. No Pressure
Yep. There’s nothing better than waking up in the morning without thinking about anyone but yourself. No ‘bae’ to text first thing in the morning and gets scary mad when you don’t. You won’t feel terrible if you decide to be selfish at times. More time for yourself and more time for other things that matters to you!
And most of all, you can go through life without someone constantly badgering you if you happen to forget special days like birthdays and the date of your first kiss together. *cringe*
No pressure in looking good for someone. No worries about someone throwing a fit if you send a reply to a co-worker. No yells when you fail to heed some orders. You get to live your life on your own pace, and peacefully at that. You get to go shopping without someone bothering you because they’re starving. ( Duh! )
You can move as fast or as slow as you can without considering if she/he can keep up. No pressure. Just you in your own little world!
Yes, being single is actually a good thing. It’s just a matter of perspective. Some relationships don’t last because they rush into it that they end up getting less than they deserve. Some ends up in a toxic relationship that kills their self-esteem.
You see, just because one is in a relationship doesn’t automatically mean that he/she is happy. They could just be ‘settling’, for all you know. They’re too coward to be alone that they jump in a relationship that’s not fit for them. They choose to just settle because they don’t want to be by themselves. And it’s never a story of happy-endings. It’s just a matter of time before they realize what a mess they got themselves into.
So, be happy that you’re single and stop getting all dramatic when you see lovebirds shamelessly smooching each other in the street. Go, explore the world and see how beautiful it is. Take your time knowing yourself and your worth. You won’t be single forever anyway. Never rush into love for it will eventually come when you’re ready.
For now, go out there and be you. Don’t miss out on the beautiful things you can do while you’re still single and free. The right one will come along and you’ll be glad that you took your time. Be single and choose to be happy about it! After all, life is all about choices, right? So, go out there and have fun!
