In today’s world, where most people feel ideal by being defined by their relationships, it is easy to think that being single is the same as being alone, which is not the case. Without a doubt having a companion at some point in your life makes you feel like everything is in control, that you have someone who understands you and is there for you when you need them. But what happens when that person is no longer part of your life?
Many people tend to have rancor towards this person depending on the circumstances that led to them being alone. Much of life is timing and circumstances. At this point, you being single and feeling as if you are alone speaks to you on a primal level. You either embrace it, or you let it shutter you. The choice usually is yours.
Many dangle on a spring of sadness. Others are pined and try every means possible to be with that person again. It won’t be easy and fun for starters, but one thing for sure you will not regret having embraced singlehood.
Whether you are just entering this season or have been in it for a while, here are some things to help you embrace your singlehood season.
- The world is your oyster.
Not to sound cliche, but this is the time to garner up all the energy you have to do all the things you’ve never but have wanted to do. If it’s moving to a new city, exploring different places, learning a new language, do it. Get out of your comfort zone. Heck, this is the time to be selfish and be unapologetic about it. THE WORLD IS YOUR OYSTER.
2.It is the time to discover who you are
Now that you have plenty of alone time being on your own, this is the time you get to understand yourself more. Relationships are about compromises and sacrifices. Therefore limiting one in getting to make their own decisions without thinking of the other party.
3.It is Okay not to be dating
It is not a requirement or mandatory for one to date. Date when you are ready. There’s a lot more to discover about yourself. Don’t be in a rush.
