In our world, singles can feel like they are missing out in life, especially when everyone they know is in a happy and loving relationship, their favorite songs are about loving relationships, and they’re patted on the back and reassured they’ll eventually find someone. All these things can make singles of all ages feel pretty sad.
But in reality, being single isn’t that bad as people make it out to be. You might not have a life partner who is waiting for you at the coffee shop or someone cute to post pictures on Instagram with, but there are a lot of upsides to being single. Aside from having the freedom to do whatever you want whenever you want, to come and go as you please, and to date whoever you want, you also have many opportunities to get to know yourself properly and work towards your life goals and dreams.
