Why Being Single is Amazing!

There is a lot of emphasis on how good it is to be in a relationship. But not much emphasis is placed on how good it can be to be single too! There are so many positives with being single, and usually people realise it when they are in the wrong relationship. People don't talk about the many issues that being in a relationship can come with, they only see the good sides.

I have recently gone through a breakup and I'll be the first to admit, it isn't pretty and it's not nice. You always have love for someone even though you know it wasn't right. But the fact of the matter is, it wasn't right. I slowly started to fall more and more out of love with this person, and I was unhappy most of the time. And life is too short to be unhappy because of someone else. There is so much more to life than that. If you want to have some fun, go grab some friends and go on a big road trip. If you want to talk to someone, ring your family or friends. Don't settle for less than you deserve, or you will have a lifetime of unhappiness.

There are so many positives to being single, that I have definitely realised lately;

First of all, you can go anywhere you want and go out with whoever you want without having to answer someone, and without having to text someone constantly. You have the freedom to be with anyone and go anywhere you want to go. One day, when you are settled down, you will look back to these days and think how amazing they were, especially if you want children in the future, you won't have as much freedom as you do now. So embrace it!

Secondly, when someone goes through a break up, they think about the good times they had, but don't think about the bad times. All relationships have bad times, and if you were unfortunate to be in a relationship where a lot of it was bad, you don't have to put up with it anymore. No more worry, no more heartache, just you and the big wide world. So go and explore it!

Now you are single, you don't have to put up with any bad habits they had that used to irritate you. If they were messy, or if they had an annoying habit that used to make you cringe, there is no more of that!

Think of how big the world is. There are so many people you haven't met yet, so many experiences you haven't had, and so many places you haven't seen. You can go out there and meet new people, and you may find someone that takes your fancy, and ticks all of your boxes. It's not until you realise there is much better out there that you start to forget a certain person. You deserve to be treated like the most amazing person on this earth, so don't settle for anyone that makes you feel less than that.

Were you worried when you were in a relationship? Where are they? Who are they with? Well now you don't need to worry about that. Gone are the days when you are constantly checking their social media profile and texting them without a text back. You can enjoy your time with a smile and without worry. Life is happening right now so make the most of it!

Another reason it's great to be single, is the money you will save. Think of all the money you have spent on dates and presents, you can now spend it on whatever you want! You can spend it on some new clothes, or new adventures. Treat yourself!

You can work on yourself whenever you want now too. Now is the best time to pamper yourself, and do as you please. No more thinking of someone else and what they want to do.

'Life is too short to be worrying about someone else.'
