Another Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, so with all the focus on romantic love going around out there, we want to take a minute to show some love to all the #SingleLadies (and all single peeps, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t take advantage of a Bey reference) and talk about why being single is awesome.
Whether you’re feeling a little down about being single and need a pick-me-up, or living for your independence and just want to shine in it a little more, here are some reasons why being single is EV.ER.Y.THING.
You’ve Got No Bae Drama
Even in the best relationships, small arguments and slight annoyances are just bound to happen. It’s a fact of life. But when you’re single, there’s at least one area of your life that you know will be drama free, and that’s something to really celebrate!
You Can Focus On You
Although those in relationships are more than capable of growth, it’s honestly just easier to focus on bettering yourself when you have more time to yourself. If you’re not already the type of person that loves/craves alone time, now is your time to get in touch with yourself!
Probably the greatest news of all time is that there are tons of fulfilling ways to spend your time that have nothing whatsoever to do with romance. You won’t have time to feel any type of way about being single when you are focused on:
- Spending time with family and friends
- Advancing in your career
- Becoming literally better and smarter every day by reading new books or learning a new language
- Traveling and learning about different cultures
- Creating things! Take on DIY projects to brighten your home and/or make art if you’re able
- Volunteering for your community and/or getting involved in local politics
- Pampering and treating yourself because you deserve it v. much 💁
Nothing can stop you when your self confidence and worth are high!
You’re Open To New Opportunities
There’s something really refreshing and exciting about your options being wide open. Think about it- the world is your oyster!
Plus, this way you’re totally free and available when your celeb bae FINALLY comes to their senses and calls you. It’ll happen. 🙌
Fall In Love With You!
If you’re over all the lovey dovey-ness that hangs around this time of year, hopefully this helped remind you why being single is awesome.
