The Single Life

Posted by iusbvision on January 26, 2007

Being single is not the end of the world and can be the beginning of an entirely new world. A world where you can be yourself and discover who you are without being defined by a significant other. After being dumped, things can look pretty bleak. This is not a good reason to jump right back on the dating horse. It may be healthier to stop dating for a while, as ludicrous as that  sounds.      So many women and men feel the need to always be in a relationship. Downtime is not really an option and there is not a lot of focus on who you as an individual. If you can not live with yourself, then no one else should be expected to live with you either. It is important to be content with who you are—without having that assurance of someone being romantically involved with you. If you know about you, then you know what you want, and can look for the same qualities in someone else.

As cliché as this is; all good things come to he who waits.  You will discover that you can be independent and find that you have the self-confidence that only you can give. Don’t let your self-confidence depend on whether or not you have a boyfriend or girlfriend to show off. Focus more on what you have discovered about yourself instead. Figuring out who you are and what you really want is worth the wait.

    We are assuming in this article that marriage is a “good thing”. Lol. Just kidding. But honestly, good article, Carlie; I see so many women with men who don’t treat them well just so they don’t have to be alone.
