Society has a lot of stereotypes and prejudices about love. As a result people often feel pressured to stay in a relationship, even if they aren’t satisfied with it, and feel guilty for being single. But don’t forget that you can be alone but not lonely. Being in a committed relationship with yourself actually has many benefits.
It is crucial to note that the most important relationship you will ever have is with yourself, and sometimes loneliness is the best option.
1. We are often guilty of singlism.
Research showed that people evaluate single men and women more negatively. It is so common that there’s even a word for it: singlism. Single people face different types of discrimination, and it’s considered legitimate and unproblematic. So the next time someone asks when you’ll find your partner, they are actually invading your privacy.
2. It’s better to learn to be kind to yourself first.
3. You can develop more as an individual.
Think about all the time that single people have for themselves. They can try different hobbies, achieve their wildest dreams, or pursue their careers. Don’t believe it? While it’s evident that married men earn more than single men. Single women are 2 times more likely to own a home, than single men.
4. Singles actually have super strong relationships.
5. Chasing love can make your life miserable.
6. Being single will make you healthier and fitter.
