Some people enjoy being in a relationship whilst others enjoy being single. I’m the latter – being single isn’t all that bad. I guess after being single for literally all my life, it’s something that I have grown accustomed to, but nonetheless it’s something that I love and have grown to love. Being single is nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed of in the slightest which is the that I used to think about it. Slowly but surely, I’m becoming less embarrassed about it and embracing that part of me. To me, Valentine’s Day is just another day of the year, it’s never been anything special to me but it’s not something that I’m fussed about either. Here’s are some of the reasons why I love being single.
One of the big reasons why I enjoy being single is because of the independence. You don’t have to rely on another person to go out and do activities together all the time. Being the introvert that I am, I thoroughly enjoy my alone time and being the independent person that I am. It also gives me the chance to grow independently and find myself as a person.
I can do what I want when I want
Similar to the last one, as I don’t have to factor in another person into my life I can do what I want whenever I want. I don’t have to factor somebody else into the decisions that I make. If there’s a birthday meal or work meal coming up, then this isn’t something that I have to discuss with a partner because, well, I’m single. The decisions and choices that I make are something that I just don’t need to discuss with an extra person.
Spending time alone
Being the introvert that I am, I thoroughly enjoy spending my time alone. Through being single it allows me to embrace my alone time more and it means that I have more time for myself in order to socially recharge my batteries. It allows me to grow independently as a person in my own comfort. In the comfort of myself I know that I can simply be myself without worrying about being comfortable around somebody else. With spending time alone, I know that I won’t feel self-conscious in the slightest.
Being responsible for my own happiness
Not only do I not have to consider someone else in the decisions and choices that I might make in my life, but I also don’t have to rely on them for my happiness. I know that being independent and growing as person by myself that I can rely on myself and the other little things around me for my own happiness. I hate the thought of getting attached to somebody, only for them to ruin my happiness in some way.
One less thing to prioritise
As a result of being single it means that I don’t have to try and balance my time between my partner, friends, family and so on. It makes it a hell of a lot easier to prioritise my time with others and the things that I do as well as balancing my alone time with my socialising. It also allows me to focus more on myself, my career and so on.
