How To Be Happy Being Single
You go to sleep alone. You wake up alone. You get food alone. You eat alone. And on and on, year after year. Sometimes it feels like you are cursed; life’s way of humoring itself. And once in a while, you get your hopes up when you meet someone new, only to have them ghost in the blink of an eye. Welcome to the single life.
Being single can really take a toll on you psychologically. It promotes loneliness, sadness, anticipatory anxiety and even loss of motivation and drive. That is if you don’t handle being single properly. For some, being single is a choice. For most, it’s a reality that we have to deal with until the chapter ends.
Sometimes no matter how hard you try, you still cannot meet the right person, or any person. You start to lose confidence in yourself and your future expectations. It’s like your mind starts laughing at you and teasing you, “you will be single forever, buddy!” But this is when you have to maintain your strength, optimism and power of belief.
It’s very easy to fall into a mindset that “everyone is in a relationship and I’ve been single forever.” But just because people are in a relationship does not mean that they are compatible or even happy. Many people are afraid of leaving a relationship and starting over!
Guess what happens to these people? Their relationships eventually come to an end. Therefore, don’t worry so much about being single. As long as you are making a reasonable effort on your part, the right person will eventually come your way. It’s important to also stop “looking so hard” for that person.
Allow life to bring the two of you together when it’s meant to be. In the meantime, keep your hopes up, believe that it will happen, continue with positive affirmations and focus on bettering yourself. Many people are in relationships and do not have their life together!
Even though being single can be emotionally hard at times and life seems to become repetitive here and there, you have to keep pushing! You have to stay positive and continue to visualize how you would like your future to turn out. Do not lose your belief of meeting a significant other.
God has a plan for every one of us. He can read our hearts better than we can. Have faith in the process and believe that everything will happen how it’s intended.
