The Power of Being Single

Do I like being single? No, I don’t like to be single. That is the honest answer that I can give from the bottom of my heart. I am still at odds trying to reconcile myself with the fact that I might become single for the rest of my life. I am not inviting you to my pity party of singleness. It’s just that I am someone who tries to accept the fact that I  am  living a single life for NOW.  I am trying to embrace the thought that I MAY never get asked out on a date, or that I MAY never find the love of my life.

Notice that I highlighted the word MAY and NOW. Why MAY? It means that there is a possibility that these situations I mentioned may happen to me, or not at all. Why NOW? Well, it means that I have to live in the present and enjoy the life that I live for now being single. Now, not next week, not next year.

In other words, for all the single people here, let us not bemoan the fact that we are single even though we try to resist this state at the back of our minds. I believe that there is power in being single. Why? I believe these are the answers that came to me while I was reflecting why I am still single:

I still need to do things that will help me to be a better person

I am with people right now who need my help.

It is my choice to be single right now

You may have your own personal reasons for still remaining single. Feel free to message me, or share if you want.

Right now, I encourage you to enjoy the process of being single. Get to know yourself a bit more. Find ways to make yourself a better person. Recently, I have been attending workshops to help me be more financially literate, and learn more about blogging and freelancing. I love doing this because I get a chance to meet new people, gain new friends, and learn a thing or two about them.
