Are you single?
If so, it’s not necessarily the worst thing in the world.
At times it’s often very important to go through a “single phase,” because it gives you an opportunity to focus on different priorities in your life.
For example, you may want to stay single for an extended period of time so that you can focus more on work, family, health, or your own personal goals.
Most importantly, being single gives us a chance to better understand ourselves and become more comfortable with who we are.
If you are always jumping in-and-out of relationships, you can very easily become too dependent on having a partner. You begin to put ALL of your self-worth on the idea of “dating” someone, and that can often lead to an unhealthy life and unhealthy relationships.
Being single teaches you how to be more independent and it teaches you how to enjoy life without always needing someone by your side all of the time. And that can be a very powerful thing.
Of course, choosing to be single (for now) doesn’t mean you should give up on relationships entirely. But there are many valid reasons why you may want to stay single for a little while.
- You may want to focus more on school or building a career before you commit to a serious relationship.
- You may want to focus on improving your health and fitness so that you can be your “best self” before you start dating again.
- You may want to focus on other personal goals and passions so that you can learn to enjoy life without needing a girlfriend/boyfriend.
These are just a few legitimate priorities that sometimes come before you want to enter back into the dating world.
Here’s a short video I made about why you should stay single (for now):
As you can see, there are plenty of good reasons to stay single during certain times in your life.
The best part is: if you can learn to be happy while single, you will become a more balanced and independent person when it’s finally time to start a relationship.
Overall, by making the most of your time while single, you can improve both yourself and your future relationships.
