Battling my own personal demands within the last ten months while trying to also remain as strong as possible actually made me feel as though my life was upside down. While it may have looked like everything was fine from the outside, I felt like I was not in control of anything. Everything was falling apart. I don’t like being this vulnerable, for fear of not being seen as strong. But I cannot be of help to others if I do not speak from an authentic place.
Most of us love the concept of being in love. Of being with that special someone who would make our life so much better and beautiful. However, it is not always that we find Mr. or Miss Right.
Being single can be one of the best things in the world if you know how to enjoy it. Often there is a lot of pressure on us from friends or family to be with someone. But being with anyone just for the sake of it does more harm than good.
Instead, embrace your singlehood.
Do you know what’s the best thing about being single?
I have often casually asked people what they wanted from life. In most cases, I got the reply: happiness. Come to think about it, isn’t it sad that so many people want to be happy because you want something that is essentially missing from life. Maybe I am overthinking, maybe they were not thinking about their answer from that point, but the fact remains—all of us could do better with more happiness.
This life can throw some hurdles at you and if you don’t know how to handle it, you will crumble. The everyday robotic routine can become boring and to say the least at times a little pathetic. School, work, relationships, friends, parenting, and kids add stress to our lives at times positive or negative.
