That awkward moment when this post was supposed to be posted like 2 months ago. Ah well. Still a decent thought… I think. 🙂
This post is going to explain why being single might just be the best thing, even over Valentine’s Day.
For a lot young adults, Valentine’s Day is not-so-affectionately known as “Singles’ Awareness Day”. To which most of us reply with “We’re already fully aware of just how single we are”. Some people sit and cry about being single. Others act out in desperation to not be single. The rest of us settle into the singleness, accepting it, maybe even embracing it.
Or maybe we use phrases like “I’m waiting for Superman” or “One day my prince will come”. But let’s be real. No one is a fairytale prince. No one is Superman. If we’re looking for perfection, we’re all screwed. It doesn’t exist. So while your friend is out with her boyfriend, or your brother is making out loudly with his girlfriend, or you’re just sick of getting relationship, engagement, and wedding announcements on your social media feed, be glad that you don’t have to deal with someone else’s problems today. Let’s be honest, if you’re still reading this blog, it’s because something resonates with you. And if something is resonating with you, you’ve probably got as many problems as I do. And let’s be real, who wants to try and deal with someone else’s problems when we can barely deal with our own?
Go embrace being single. Eat a pint of ice cream or some chocolate you got on sale. You’ll be just fine whether you’re spending the evening alone, with friends, with a significant other, or even a spouse. It’ll all work out.
