Don’t Worry If You Are Single. Here’re The Reasons Why Being Single Is Perfectly Alright
In a society like ours where we are constantly reminded of paying respect to others and loving, thereby sacrificing for others, it is important for us to know and understand why it is perfectly alright to be single.
We’ve all been told about the old cliché when we’re single: we’ll find someone eventually when the time is right. But is that the most necessary thing?
Is that thing so bound to happen that we must feel bad if we don’t fall in love with someone strongly enough to get into a relationship with them?
Here are 5 reasons why there’s nothing wrong with being single:
1. IT’S ABOUT YOU, NOT THE OTHER ONE IN YOUR LIFE
It is always said that our partner or the significant other brings out the best in us but that is possible only when we are in healthy relationships. Hence just to change our relationship status from single to involved we don’t have to hurry to get into a hit and miss relationship with some random person. Nothing is as good as being self-sufficient in knowing what’s the best for us, how we can make things better for us and why self-love is more important than the popular culture of sacrifice.
2. DISCOVER YOURSELF
Most of the students in colleges and universities are thoroughly obsessed with the idea of finding that special someone in their lives but what they fail to understand is the time we spend in college; the 18-21 age group of our lives; is the time when we discover our strengths, weaknesses, likes and dislikes about ourselves. So, it is completely okay if you don’t bump into a pretty girl or a handsome boy as you walk through the college corridors, rather you make memories with yourself that will shape your personality.
3. YOUR CHOICES MATTER, NOT THE SOCIETY’S
At times after looking at couples (whether happy or not) around us makes us feel that commitment, relationship, cuddling and kissing are the only logical, practical things that we must be involved in order to survive and fit into the ocean of society but unless our feelings are not strong and static enough for someone we must not engage ourselves with someone only for the sake of it.
4. ONCE YOU KNOW YOURSELF, YOU KNOW WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN OTHERS
After we learn to enjoy our own company and after we prepare ourselves to stand by our own choices, we tend to look more deeply into other people than just their looks and appearances. Hence when we find someone, it will last a lifetime as the institution of the relationship won’t be lust alone and there will be mutual respect and understanding about each other’s personality and lifestyle.
5. THE ONE NIGHT STANDS
Just because you are not in a full-fledged serious relationship, it does not mean that you can’t have fun with someone else physically; sexually. A stranger who was fun to dance with, you can have a commitment-free experience with the person where the only goal is the pleasure. And there's no reason not to seek that out keeping in mind that you have safe and consensual sex.
It might seem dangerous and lonely at first but gradually we learn how being single is always better than either staying involved in a bad relationship or being desperate for a change in relationship status just for the sake of it.
