Single Isn’t a Bad Word … I’ll Tell You Why!

Single-Isn't-a-Bad-WordDay after day I hear from so many people who are miserably single.  They’re desperately seeking that special someone to “complete them”.  They want to find their “other half”.  Why is it so hard? With millions of other people wanting the same thing, is it really that hard to find a match? I think no, and yes.  What do I mean? Well, it’s all about perspective.  Perhaps a change of attitude might change your luck.  I’m here to tell you that single isn’t a bad word.  You think I’m crazy? Not at all. Single is actually something worth celebrating! Why? I’ll tell you why.

Single Isn’t a Bad Word … I’ll Tell You Why

Being single brings you a whole lot of opportunities you might not have had if you were with someone.  One of my favorite quotes is “People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.” (Abraham Lincoln).  It’s very true and you know it.  When you decide to live your life happy, regardless of your status then you are enhancing your quality of life in a big way.

What does being single mean? It means FREEDOM!! Freedom to choose, freedom to live your own life the way you want to live it. Imagine that!! You don’t need to answer to anyone and you go and come as you please.  Just enjoy it.  Use this time to give time to things you’ve always wanted to do and learn what you’ve always wanted to learn.  It’s also a great time to give your best to your family and friends.  When I first got divorced that’s what I did and I’m a much much better person for it.  Now I know what I want and WHO I want and won’t settle for less!

There’s No Partner Like the Right Partner

The fact remains that no one wants to be alone, but you’re definitely better off alone than with the wrong partner.  You need to take your time and find the right one.  This means DATING.  Get out there and meet new people and try new things.  We’ve all had our hearts broken by the wrong partner. Do you put people on dating repeat?  That might be your problem.  Just focus on your wants and needs and keep trying until you get it right … and you WILL get it right!  I dated a lot after my divorce and that’s how I realized that what I thought was my type really wasn’t an ideal partner.  I learned that what I really needed was a stable independent man, not someone stuck to my side 24/7.  I wouldn’t have thought I liked that until I actually tried.  So what has your dating taught you?

  1. Yes I absolutely agree that single should not be a bad word. When you put no pressure on yourself to find that “one” you get to enjoy life and enjoy things that you may have missed or never have gotten to do.
