I can understand that relationships are becoming tedious these days. The noise of breakups and the pains of losing someone who was once the most beautiful piece of your life. It can be depressing, I know. Yes, it can be overwhelming too but what to do? Maybe it’s time to take a break and refresh your mind. Read on…
Independence: Staying single can allow you to maintain a higher degree of personal independence and freedom, as you won’t have to consider another person’s preferences and decisions as extensively. All you have to do is to face your life, eat at your pace, sleep and wake up at your own pace without having to worry about another person’s day except for family which we all know we can tackle at any moment.
Career Focus: Staying single can provide more time and energy to focus on your career goals and professional aspirations without the potential distractions that come with relationships. The freedom to venture into different career paths to see which one is good will be all yours.
Financial Autonomy: Not getting into relationships can help you retain control over your financial resources and avoid potential conflicts over financial matters that could arise within a relationship. In fact, you will not have to spend on birthdays and other events.
Personal Growth: Being single can offer more opportunities for personal growth, self-discovery, and pursuing individual interests without the need to compromise with a partner. You will get the opportunity to grow at your own pace and meet different opportunities.
Less Stress: Relationships can bring added responsibilities and stress, such as managing activities, date nights, financial burdens, and potential conflicts, which you might prefer to avoid.
Flexibility: Remaining single provides the flexibility to relocate, travel, or make major life decisions without considering the needs and desires of a partner.
Avoiding Heartbreaks: Relationships can sometimes end in heartbreak, there is no guarantee that it will not end, because even marriages end. This can be emotionally tasking and may lead to depression. By taking a break you avoid the possibility of going through a threatened heartbreak.
Hey! Don’t get me wrong. Having a partner is beautiful, for real, it is beautiful and exciting but come on! If you are not with one right now, then enjoy your freedom. Give yourself the break and embrace your life and the opportunities that come with it.
