Love is rather a miraculous feeling. For some people having someone special is one of the most precious things in the entire world. Yes, they are everywhere, people struck with cupid’s arrow, people who go gaga over their lovers, people who love being in love. However the fact cannot be ignored that the same world is shared with the people, who distance themselves from this feeling, the feeling called “love”. While some people are in constant rush of finding someone special, there is a whole fraternity of single people.
I have a cousin; he had a girlfriend long time ago. Whenever I talked to him about his girlfriend, he seemed happy and quite content about their relationship. It seemed like she was the one for him and then one day, I got to know that they broke up. Yes, they just called it off. They were together for more two years and then one day he says that it did not work out between them. At first, it did not make any sense as they looked perfect together and all of a sudden, he was single again and to my surprise he was enjoying it. The guy who once was a love struck puppy suddenly turned into a carefree single. He looked happier than before. I wanted to know the secret behind the sudden transmigration.
So, after days of insisting, he finally revealed the secret. He told me that why being single is better and why he was suddenly so happy to be single.
Being in a relationship is a great feeling but the great feeling is not that great anymore when you no longer can do what you want, without informing your girlfriend or boyfriend. Yes, it becomes a compulsion to tell your better half about all your plans whether you want or not and then comes the cherry on the top, your better half might not approve your plans. Being single presents you with an opportunity to plan your day as you want to.
Being single is a chance to live life on your own terms. Drink all you want, no need to look good and do whatever you want and there will be no one to keep a track orto stop you.
You can stay back at home, pamper yourself, stay in your pajamas, watch your favorite movies and there won’t be anyone to bug you, to obstruct your “me time”.
Couples sharing food in restaurants are the cutest sight ever but it cannot beat a pizza that is all yours. Yes, the best part about being single is that you don’t have to share your food.
Self love is important and being single gives you the opportunity to learn self-love. You learn that your happiness is important, taking care of yourself is important. You learn your own worth and do not easily break or fall that happens to people in love. Yes, when you are in a relationship, you unknowingly lose your worth; you prioritize the other person over your own happiness, which isn’t right.
All you happy singles, do you have anything to add? Do comment!
