Being single sucks sometimes, especially after a recent breakup. And it's totally okay to break out the tub of ice cream, look at old photos, wear that one shirt or sweatshirt and cry it all out. And when you feel like you have been crying until you can't cry anymore, take a deep breath. Let it all out, because soon, you will realize that you shouldn't let this control your happiness forever since this pain or loneliness that you're feeling is only temporary.
Instead of thinking about the bad, look for the small things that make you happy. Once you start doing this, then the bigger things that make you happy will be there too. I can assure you that you'll be okay soon, you'll find happiness soon. You'll soon realize that being single is actually not that bad!
I am no stranger to the long nights of crying at rom-coms and eating a tub of ice cream with friends while complaining about past relationships. I am no stranger to feeling like I'm going to be with someone forever and then all of the sudden, everything is over. Endings in general are tough for me to handle, but every one that I have been through has taught me a lesson and helped me become the person I am today. Being single allows me to reflect on my past relationships and see how I can improve myself as well as think about what I expect from the other person.
For me, being single allows me to focus on myself. There is no constant worry about the other person in the relationship, I just have to worry about myself. Being single is a time for healing and it is a time to become my own person. I have always thought that a person should love themselves before they love another person because it truly has an affect on their relationships with others. One of the reasons I love being single is because it is the right time to fall in love with yourself. Being single means I'm not tied down and I embrace this, and you should too!
Try things you would have never dreamt of doing, eat that dessert, go on adventures with your friends and make memories because you're only young once. I am a firm believer that every single person that enters your life is or was supposed to be there for a reason, and I also know that the relationships that are never expected are the best ones. So I'm not worrying about when the next right person will enter my life, I am focusing on myself, working on loving myself and it's one of the best journeys I've ever been on.
Being single allows me to realize that I have so many opportunities ahead of me. It makes me realize that I have so many wonderful people in my life. It allows me to become my own person and have control over my own life. Being single allows me to just be myself. Being single sucks sometimes, but if you take control of the situation and learn from it, being single is freaking awesome.
