Annnd, I’m back! I haven’t been here for quite sometime… I just got caught up in a lot of things, you could say I was caught up in the moment and I wasn’t feeling too well, of which I still have a running nose (Yuck!!), but the good news is I am back now!
So, i just thought to share my take on the perks of being single, i don’t know how many parts it’s going to be portioned into, but i am going to try my best to write on certain things I feel, a lot of us as single individuals face.
I know you must have stumbled upon a lot of single series that you get from books, series, internet, magazines…. The choice of being single to me is really an open minded decision and it also has is high and low.
I have noticed that the term “single” is considered to be the worst relationship status. (I stand to be corrected).
I feel that, it’s not meant to be that way, the choice to stay single either from after being in a relationship or just choosing to stay so, shouldn’t be considered as making a wrong decision.
Lets face it , so many of us are in a rush to get hitched (I included). Due to social pressures from friends, family and whole lot of the things we see on the screen, that we fail to realise the importance of the being single and what makes it so good.
Hey! Don’t get me wrong, being in a relationship can be a wonderful experience because it allows us to grow and mature in our understanding of human relationships.
It allows for opportunities to learn how to relate, communicate and deal with situations that may arise in our daily lives.
Having someone to share special moments, secrets, joyous and sorrowful moments with, is a really wonderful feeling.
I believe every relationship require a lot of time, trust and communication.
I know a lot of people who are currently in relationships but still feel lonely and would give anything to be single again.
Being single simply implies being whole.
It’s having the ability to stand strong on your own. But If you don’t believe you are whole, then it means you believe you are the fraction of a whole.
When being single is mismanaged it causes confusion and complications. But when managed appropriately it becomes a gift.
The choice to stay single doesn’t not imply that you don’t have what it takes to be in a relationship or have the the ability to properly handle the feelings of someone else other than you. It just means that you are giving your self time to discover who you are as an individual; giving your self the time to make mistakes, have fun, weigh your options, take time to mold yourself and grow in all aspects of your life.
It’s not about being single or being in a relationship it all about enjoying your current status.
To be single equals to being independent, strong, enlightened, loving… It doesn’t mean your are ugly or unsuited, it just means God is busy writing your next chapter and who knows, your next chapter might usher in someone that adds and compliments you completely.
So, to every single person out there, all I can say to you is to be your own person, focis in being a better you for your better next. Manage your own space, control your relationships and live simple and well.
Loads of love.
Till next time.
