The love month is just around the corner, and single ladies may already be starting to ready their answers to the usual question: "What are you going to do on Valentines' Day?" Whether you answer the query with a smile or simply shrug it off, we understand that it's inevitable to contemplate on the idea of being single.
But hey, chin up! It's all a matter of perspective. Whether you're single by choice, still on the lookout for 'the one', or you recently just got your heart broken and are flying solo for the first time in a while, we're giving you the best reasons why being single is more amazing than you think.
You see yourself in a different light
Being single gives you an opportunity to look at yourself more as an individual. It makes it easier for you to focus on and assess who you are, and it gives you the liberty to make choices for yourself. Plus, it creates a strong foundation of who you are as a person. So when you choose to be in a relationship in the future, you already know your tendencies and capabilities.
It's a sign of strength
Just like how being in a relationship does not make anyone weak and fragile, being single is about strength. Sticking to your decision to stay single for a while or to look for the right one at your own pace definitely shows strength and courage. It illustrates your understanding of what's best for yourself based on your own circumstances.
If being single makes you happy, then that's what matters
One of the worst assumptions about single people is that, by default, they are lonely. But overall, happiness depends upon you as an individual, whether or not you are in a relationship. Some people opt to be single for various reasons, and at the end of the day, your relationship status does not define who you are as a whole. It's all about sticking to whatever decision you make and taking into consideration your own happiness while doing so.
