Going through a break up is never a fun event. When you’ve shared the depths of your soul with someone over the course of years or even only a few months, there’s often a hole left behind when they are gone.
However, being single has more of a bad reputation than it needs to. Rather than seeing your newfound independence as a failure, you should see it as an opportunity to find yourself and grow. The first step to taking advantage of being single is to look at the bright side. Here are some of the best things about being single to get you started.
More Time For Self Care
When you’re in a relationship with someone, a lot of your time is spent thinking about what they need rather than what you need. When you don’t have anyone else to worry about you can put yourself in the priority seat!
It’s a chance to do things you always wanted to do. Go buy a motorcycle! Take a trip to Rome! Eat all the pizza you want without feeling guilty about it. Take the time to provide yourself with the love that would usually be going to the other person in the relationship.
You Have The Bed All To Yourself
Even though you may have fond memories of being able to sleep with someone else at night which can be reassuring, let’s face it, there’s more room in the bed now! No more fussing over who steals the blanket, or having to be quiet when you wake up earlier than the other and need to get ready for work.
You can turn the light on whenever you want, spread yourself out on any side of the bed that you want, and snore as loud as you want when it’s only you in your bed!
More Time For Your Friends
A lot of people find that their friendships go on the back burner when they’re in a romantic relationship. Being single is a chance to rekindle friendships which may have been suffering due to all the attention you were giving to your significant other.
Now you can hang out with your friends and enjoy company without strings attached or romantic quarrels. There’s nothing like platonic relationships that can bring you in touch with who you truly are rather than who someone else may expect you to be.
You Get To Date
Although dating can involve kissing a lot of frogs before you get to your prince, it’s an excellent opportunity to go out and find what you really want.
Think of dating as a chance for a few free drinks and dinners and a lesson in human psychology. Sit back and enjoy the ride!
