It’s okay to be alone.
People have this misconception that being alone is for losers. It’s not. Sometimes being alone not only can make you a better person when you’re in a relationship but it can also help you feel more comfortable in your skin– and that’s important! I know that Valentines day is a couple of months away and that’s basically the massacre day for most single people around the world, but there are ways to change feeling like that, around.
Take, nights when your friends in relationships have a date night, why don’t you catch up with some old pals you haven’t seen or spoken to in a while. Not only will you work on other friendships, but you may even be introduced to new people as well. For Valentines day, go out with a bunch of your single friends to the pub and have a few drinks instead of sitting at home crying into a bowl of cereal claiming no one loves you. There are always different alternatives you guys, just try them out.
Being single is not a bad thing. What you find and you could even ask your friends who are in relationships if they miss being single and more times than not, they’ll tell you yes. Being in a relationship is great, it’s good to have someone there for you whenever you need them and being there for them as well. But it’s also hard work and sometimes some people who have bad records with relationships don’t have good track records because the relationship they should have worked on first, is with themselves.
So, you see you guys, you don’t have to feel bad or hopeless when you’re single. Work on building a relationship with yourself, work out your wants and needs and then when the right person comes along, you’ll know. Not just because they might be gorgeous, but I believe your inner self will give you this feeling of it “being right” and the odds are, they probably will be.
