Things you learn being single
Personal identity: Being single is a great time to get to know who you are before trying to explain it to someone else. That way, by the time you are ready to start dating (again or for the first time) you’ll know who you are, what you want with your own life and what you want in a partner. By the time you know what you want in a partner, that person will be an added bonus to who you are as a person.
Independence: Being single for some people can be difficult but it can also be liberating. You are in charge and the world is your oyster.
How to time manage: Take this time to focus on school and a career. Although you should be doing this while in a relationship too, you might have more time on your hands when you aren’t seeing anyone. Get out there and begin building your future and setting goals! By the time dating interests you again, you’ll be great at time management and you’ll know how to add that special someone into your schedule.
How to love yourself more: You only have to worry about yourself right now. Being single is a great time to discover new passions, work hard and make goals. It will be that much more exciting to share yourself with someone else when you love who you are and what you are doing!
Self-care: When you’re single, you learn more about putting yourself first as well as what you want for yourself. You can take this time to get in shape, discover your spirituality, develop a sleep schedule, express your creativity, process your emotions and pamper yourself. Once you begin doing these things, in turn you will find that you are less stressed too.
The importance of friendship: During your time single, good friends are crucial. Friends will be there for you during the good times and the bad. Take the time to invest in some good ones who will stick with you through it all!
You are capable: When you are single, you tend to learn that you can do a lot more than you thought you could. It turns out you can fix the TV, do your taxes, and go to the movies alone! If there is ever any doubt whether or not you can do something, have no fear, there’s a Youtube video for it.
Get out there and own it.
