We would all like to believe that there is someone out there for everyone but honestly, not everyone is going to end up falling love. There will be some people who live their lives single and spend their time on their own but that doesn’t mean we should assume they’re miserable or that their independence means they should be pitied.

There is nothing wrong with being on your own and sometimes those who are single are much happier than those in relationships. I would much rather be single and on my own than sleeping in bed next to someone every night who treated me like sh!t or didn’t actually care about me at all. For some reason, we stigmatize being alone in this day and age and that really needs to stop.

Some people just aren’t meant to be with others and while they still have friends and family they don’t find or perhaps even want a significant other. These people can live full lives just as the rest of us would, and we are not in any place to judge them. As long as they’re happy, there is nothing wrong with spending their time on their own and enjoying their lives with the company of themselves.

I know people who are miserable and married, being in a relationship isn’t going to solve all of your problems and the sooner you come to terms with that the better. Honestly, being on your own isn’t the end of the world. It’s a chance for you to get to know yourself more properly and the invitation to live your life the way you please without boundaries.

A significant other doesn’t change who you are, complete you, or tell you how to move through this world. These are all things you still have to work through on your own. This world is still something you have to maneuver through whether you like that idea or not.

You can’t move through this world waiting for someone to come in and sweep you off of your feet, that kind of thing only happens in fairytales. This life is not one that is going to leave us all finding a partner and just because someone hasn’t found someone they vibe with properly yet doesn’t mean that they are dying to find someone to love. Some people are perfectly content enjoying the single life and spending time doing the things that they love.

When you’re on your own you don’t have to take anyone else’s emotions or thoughts into consideration. You get to live the life you want above all else and that is something that a lot of people think is well worth it. Sure, you can be quite fulfilled all the while being in a relationship and connections like that are special, but they’re not for everyone.

We are all unique and we all go through our own things in this life. What works for you might not work for someone else. The more aware you are of that the better.
