It is in our nature that we constantly seek a life partner to spend our life with. But as you know, there are many people who stay in bad relationships just because they are afraid of being alone.

All those abused women all around the world stay with their abusers because they think that they are not strong enough to make it on their own.

They think that even if he is mentally and physically abusing her, that he will be there when she needs him. And they deceive themselves with the same lies every day.

They don’t mind waking up with a man who doesn’t even give a damn about them. They stay with him because they think that is the right way.

Listen to me, staying with someone you don’t feel happy with is NEVER the right way.

Maybe they can’t understand that now, but they eventually will. I realized it in time that sometimes it is better to be alone than in bad company. It would terrify me to be with someone who makes my life miserable.

It would bring me down so much to be with a man who doesn’t give me the love I deserve. That’s why I am proudly saying that I am not afraid to sleep alone, I am afraid to sleep with the wrong man.

I couldn’t be with someone who doesn’t share my dreams and my passion.

I couldn’t stand it if he was kissing me goodnight and when I fell asleep he was sneaking out to meet another woman.

I couldn’t forgive myself if I spent my life with a man who treated me like an option. If I will be with someone, I need to be the apple of his eye. I need for him to tell me that he loves me and that he supports me.

I want his heart to beat faster every time he sees me and I want to give him butterflies in his stomach when we are apart more than 2 days. I want him to love me to the moon and back and I want him to  not be afraid to admit that. And I promise I will feel the same way.

When the right one comes into my life, I will do everything to love him like he deserves. I will be the best wife of them all and he won’t even want to seek another one. He will be into me because of all that love and affection I will give him. And the best thing about it is that I won’t even make any effort regarding that.

When you love, it is as natural as breathing.

You don’t need to do crazy things to keep your loved one. You just need to be yourself because that is the person he fell in love with in the first place.

So, I am not wrong when I say that I am not afraid of eating alone but of wasting my time with the wrong person. I am not afraid of making love, I am afraid of bad sex.

I am not afraid of going to weddings alone, I am afraid of having an awful one myself.

I am not afraid of being myself, I am afraid of being with someone I can’t be myself with. I am not afraid of being cold, I am afraid of being vulnerable. I am not afraid of being alone, I am afraid of dating. And as far as I am concerned, this will be my life motto.

I know it feels bad when you go to bed alone but I don’t mind doing it at this stage of my life. I just don’t want to wake up with a man I feel zero love for.

And if for some reason the one never comes or our lives go in different directions, I won’t mind being alone. I learned the most important lesson in my life and that is to accept myself completely.  

I learned to love myself and I don’t need a man to complete me. I just need the one who will accept me completely!
