So you are single and you think about the ways to change it? Well, stop! Because being single can be an absolute blast and sometimes it is the best way for you to live your life, even though you don’t know it. Here are 5 signs that it is exactly what you need at this point of your life.
1. You are focused on yourself
One of the first signs that a romantic relationship is not something you need at this point in your life is the fact that you are completely focused on yourself. This doesn’t mean that you are selfish—it only means that there has come a period of your life in which you’ve decided to put all of your energy and time into improving yourself and working on yourself.
And this is not something you should justify to anyone for doing. Instead, being self-centered for a certain period of your life is the best thing you can do for both yourself and for a potential future relationship.
It means that you are pushing yourself forward into becoming the best possible version of yourself and that means that in the future, you’ll be able to have the best possible relationship. Remember—you can never love someone else or expect someone else to love you unless you learn to love yourself first.
2. You still have some emotional baggage
When they end a relationship in which they’ve experienced a lot of pain, many people have an impulse to go out there and find their next partner right away. But that is actually the worst thing you can do to yourself and to your mental health.
If you feel like you still haven’t resolved some things from your past or that you still haven’t completely gotten over someone you loved, it is time for you to be single. I am not saying that you should never find someone new but a rebound relationship is not the path to recovery and it doesn’t mean that you’ve moved on.
Whatever emotional baggage you are carrying within yourself, you’ll also take to your new relationship and that can never turn out to be good. So instead of doing everything in your power to get into a relationship in the hope of getting over the person who still hurts you, focus on moving on on your own.
3. You’ve had your share of bad relationships
When you think about your previous relationships, you can’t say that they were healthy or successful. Instead, each one of these relationships took a part of you and broke you in one way or another.
And what does this tell you? That you should keep looking further for your perfect match? Right but first take a break from dating.
All of these bad relationships brought your serious trust issues and have changed your perspective of love. And this is something you ought to deal with before you become ready for something new.
If this is the case with you, it is a clear sign that it is time for you to be alone, so you can figure out what it is that you want from life and from relationships. It is time for your heart and soul to take a rest from all of these turbulences romance has brought you.
4. You don’t feel ready for a new relationship
No matter the age you are right now, as a woman, you are always pressured to have someone. Even if you are currently not in a relationship, you are expected to date or to be in the process of finding someone suitable.
But right now, this is simply not something you want out of life. Right now, you don’t feel ready for a relationship and there is no explanation for this—you just enjoy being single.
And there is nothing wrong with that. Instead, it means that you are in a great place in your life and that you have other things to put your focus on. It is always better to be single than in a relationship you actually don’t want or just to fit some social standards.
5. You feel complete
When you look at your life, you wouldn’t change a thing about it. You fought hard to be where you are now and for the first time ever, you feel like you aren’t missing a thing.
It is obvious that you feel complete on your own and that you don’t need a man to give your life meaning. And that is why it’s better for you to remain single until the right guy comes along than to settle for someone who will disrupt your peace and harmony.
