Learn To Embrace Being Single

To-group-date-or-not


Being single is awesome. I know we’ve been conditioned to want to be in relationship at all times because we don’t want to be alone, but throw that ideology out of your mind! Being single is fabulous and it gives you time and experience to know who you are and what you want.

Women are often afraid that they are doomed for failure if they aren’t in a relationship or have never been in a successful relationship. But that’s simply not true. Having relationships that don’t work out are great learning experiences. Gain wisdom from your failed relationship and process your mistakes and missteps so you they don’t become a pattern in future relationships.

Being single allows you time to realize what you’re looking for in a partner, but also in life itself, like your goals for a career, family life, or even your own habits, activities or personalities. Everyone has room for self-improvement and it’s better to figure what you want to change about yourself before you enter a relationship. If you give yourself time to grow while you’re single, you won’t have to keep checking yourself to make sure you’re not falling into old patterns with a new person you start dating again.

Being single and secure in who you are independently is the most important thing you can do for yourself and new future partner. So if you’re single, embrace it! Learn about who you are, what you want in life, men, and your career. Figure out where you want to be in ten years, but figure it out without a romantic partner because once your life is put together and you’re sincerely happy, your Prince or Princess Charming will show up. And that person will enrich your life, making it happier and easier and you will be able to make theirs that way as well.
