Being single can be lonely sometimes but I’d definitely pick being single than being with the wrong person. You can definitely enjoy being single but will you enjoy being with the wrong person?
You’re definitely lucky being single, some people are stuck in a toxic relationship they can’t get out of and are craving to be single and away from the person. As you’re craving for a relationship, someone else is craving to get out of theirs.
THINGS TO BE GRATEFUL FOR AS YOU’RE SINGLE
YOU DON’T HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE STRESS OF A RELATIONSHIP: you’re free from the stress and hurt that comes from being with the wrong person. You are not constantly thinking of getting away from someone and being on your own. You’re not worried about someone not treating you right or making time for you. You’re stress free from a relationship.
YOU HAVE PEACE OF MIND: there’s this peace of mind that comes with being on your own, in your space. Your mind is completely free from thoughts of another person especially disturbing thoughts. You are not afraid of someone hurting you both physically and emotionally.
YOU HAVE TIME FOR YOURSELF: you have time to pursue your dreams, follow your passion and accomplish your goals. You are not thinking of someone else that isn’t worth your time. You are focusing on you, on loving yourself and investing in yourself. Your time for yourself is not shared with someone you’d rather not spend your time with.
YOU ARE NOT WALLOWING IN REGRET: most people that are with the wrong person are full of regrets, they are constantly thinking of the “what ifs”, they are regretting being with the wrong person and putting up with them. You’re not thinking of how to leave a toxic relationship nor are you regretting being with someone you know isn’t meant for you.
YOUR HAPPINESS IS NOT RUINED: you are happy with yourself and most importantly happy by yourself, you don’t need anyone to make you happy. You are not dealing with the sadness that comes from being with the wrong person that has maybe cheated on you or abused you. No one is ruining your happiness for you by doing something bad to you.
YOU ARE NOT BROKEN FROM A BAD RELATIONSHIP: being with the wrong person often times break a person and I’m not just talking of the heartbreak. You’re not broken from being abused and cheated on. You’re not broken from I’ll treatment. You are whole, no one has messed you up.
YOU HAVE FREEDOM: you are free to do what you want without fear or favour. You have freedom to go wherever you want and come back whenever you want without having to face a possessive and demanding partner. You’re a free bird that isn’t stuck in a cage, make good use of your time.
YOU ARE NOT WASTING YOUR TIME: you are putting your time to good use and making the most of your single life. You are not wasting your time with someone that treats you badly, someone you can’t even consider getting married to. You’re patiently waiting for the right one.
YOUR CONFIDENCE AND SELF LOVE IS INTACT: your sense of self is intact. You know your worth, you’re not settling for less than you deserve. You love yourself, your self confidence and self esteem has not been crushed by someone. There’s no verbally abusive partner that is making you feel unworthy or making you hate yourself. No one is making you question yourself and things you value.
YOU ARE ENJOYING YOUR SINGLE LIFE: you are enjoying your single life after all you won’t be single forever. You are simply enjoying your time with yourself and putting it to good use.
Even if you’re single, you’re not in a bad relationship and if you are in a toxic relationship, please speak up. You don’t have to put up with someone that is hurting you. Don’t settle for less than you deserve, there’s so much more out there. Someone that will treat you the way you need to be treated. Be a high value woman and know your worth, set your standards for a relationship and don’t settle for what you don’t want.
