People often confuse being alone with actually being lonely. They think that if you are in a relationship, it means that you are happy, but nobody ever said that just because you have someone means that you are always happy with that person.

I learned this lesson on my own skin, so I know what I am talking about. You know, I have always been a strong woman, the one who handles things in her own way. Then I met the guy who I fell head over heels with. He was my first love, my reason to live and my best friend.

But since dating is not a simple thing and because it needs a lot of effort for it, we fell apart. We fell apart in pieces so small that it looked like we never were together. And while I was all a mess, thinking that I am now alone and fucked up, something crossed my mind.

I figured out that just because I was single didn’t mean that I needed to be sad. That moment was my epiphany, and I realized that breaking up with you was the best thing that could have happened to me.

I realized that it is better to be alone than to put up with some jerk.
It is better to live a life where I could be myself, without pretending to be someone else just so my boyfriend would like me.

If he can’t accept all the bad things about me, he surely doesn’t deserve the best ones as well. I refuse to settle for less than I deserve, and I refuse to be someone’s doll to will play with whenever and however he wants.

I realized I am strong enough to wait for the right guy.
I have been through hell and back, and I know that life is a bitch. I also know that by speeding things up, I won’t reach my ultimate goal and that this time, I just need to go with the flow.

I need to leave destiny to do its work and just accept whatever it brings me. I spent so much time making my own love rules, but it never worked out. So, from now on, I will just stay still and let heaven send me the right one.

I realized I don’t need anyone who doesn’t need me.
I have been dating so many guys until now, and none of them could provide me with the love I craved. Every one of them disappointed me at least once, and that’s why I decided to break up with them.

Because if someone shows that he doesn’t love me, why would I stay with him and beg for his attention? If I had my heart on my sleeve and if I could open up to him, he should have done the same things for me.

But if someone refuses to do that, he simply can’t be at the top of the list of my priorities.

I won’t settle for less than I deserve.
I only have one life to live, and I surely won’t waste it on a guy who doesn’t love me as much as I love him. I won’t settle for a lack of love, a lack of attention and a lack of respect. I deserve to be loved.

I deserve to be taken care of. I deserve to be chased. And I deserve all of that to happen naturally. And if a man can’t provide me with that, then I don’t need him at all.

I will be my own reason for happiness.
During my whole life, I searched for men to make me happy, but now I realized I am my own reason for happiness. I realized don’t need a man to complete me. I don’t need him to guide me or show me the right path.

I just need one to accept me completely and to love me unconditionally. But until he comes, I will fall in love with myself first. I will learn to be my own priority and to fulfill my own wishes without needing someone to do that for me.

I will wait for the man whose love feels like home.
I know that he won’t come tomorrow or in a month, but he will eventually come. And I know that I won’t be with anyone just to avoid being alone. I will wait for someone who is worth the wait.

I will wait for the man who will be my best friend, my soulmate and my lover at the same time. The one who will chase me when I am already his, who will love me to the moon and back and who will never give up on me.

I will wait for the man whose love feels like home.
