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?
You have all the time in the world for yourself.
According to a Gallup study published in December 2015, 48% of Americans say they do not have enough time. For working professionals, time constraints seem to be even higher. Six out of 10 working people (that’s 61%) say they are pressed for time.
Balancing the professional and personal fronts is a difficult job. However, things might be a bit easier to handle when you are single and when you can focus all your time on yourself.
Pursue a hobby. Join a gym. Go out as often as you want to.
A study conducted by sociologist Erin Cornwell found that people who were single were more likely to socialize with their friends.
Plus, there is always the excitement of the probability of meeting Mr. or Miss. Right.
So what’s the bottom line? Being in a relationship is great but being single is awesome as well. In fact, it is as awesome as you make it to be. Rushing into a relationship is no good. Just wait for love to happen and enjoy your time alone until then.
