Many single people feel as though a relationship will make them complete and happy. They feel as though they are living a pathetic life that is not really worth living unless they have a partner. This couldn’t be further from the truth! True happiness starts within yourself, and if you are not happy with yourself while you are single, then you most likely won’t be happy in a relationship. This is because you have less time to be with just yourself, and figure out what makes you happy without distractions, when you are in a relationship. Yes, it’s nice to be in a healthy and happy relationship, but it is also nice to be able to focus solely on you and your happiness.
When you are single you have time to work on yourself and your life. This includes overcoming your mental, physical, and spiritual challenges. You can work through issues that you find are affecting your life in a negative way, and form new beliefs that make your life richer and happier. Take this time to figure out what you want to do in life, and where you want to be in the future. Learn how to be the happiest and healthiest you can be. The other bonus of this is that you will accept only a good and healthy relationship into your life which fits with your fully understood happiness.
When you are single you have time to really understand what your likes and dislikes are. Many times in a relationship we don’t allow ourselves to do what we love to do for fear of what our partner will think. This results in us not figuring out what truly makes us happy in life. We may pretend to like the same things our partner likes because we haven’t experienced that independent knowing of what truly makes us happy. When you are single you don’t have to answer to anyone, and you are free to do what makes you happy. So, if you want to watch a love story in your underwear while eating ice cream, you can. Or if you enjoy hiking all weekend, you can. Figure out what your likes and dislikes are and you will attract a person who has the same likes and dislikes.
When you are single you get to live the life you want without restrictions. One of the greatest things about being single is to go out whenever you want without having to answer to anyone. If you love to travel then take advantage of this time and travel. If you love to stay up till 3am and sleep till 3pm, then do it. This is the time to do whatever you like to do without boundaries and obligations. You only have you to think about yourself right now. So enjoy it!
