It gives you time to think about yourself, what you want, where you are going to be in the nearest future, etc.
Yes, when you are with a good spouse, they help you achieve your dreams but in some situations your dreams are best achieved when single. So it baffles me when people see being single as a disease, that makes me wonder why people are scared of it.
I overheard someone say she's so scared of being single and starting life afresh, so she prefers to stay in her really abusive relationship. Imagine!!!
Recently a guy was asking me out, choking me with his love lines, and all. But what really drew my attention to him was him saying he's lonely and tired of being single so he just wants to get into a relationship. I asked him if he's really ready for a relationship or just wants to get into one cos he's lonely. He replied again saying he's so lonely and needs a "girlfriend". I was kind enough to suggest being friends, but ofcourse he didn't want that, so he deleted me off BBM. I just smiled. Talk about why most relationships don't work.
Single-hood is a gift that we must embrace and enjoy. Remember you have more time to think and invest in yourself cos you are not to worry about anybody but yourself. We need to get into a relationship or marriage with the right person and not because we are lonely/ the only one in our group that's still single. Do not see yourself as incomplete cos you ain't dating/married, see yourself as complete cos your life has already started.
It's high time people stopped seeing single-hood as a disease to run away from or something to be ashamed of. It's a preparation process. It's life. People should learn to love being single and work on their self esteem. There is actually joy in being single. Cheers and do have a lovely weekend ahead.
