Being Happily Single: It’s All About Living The Life You Want And Feeling Free!
Whether you have always been single or are widowed/divorced, being single obviously gives you plenty of “me time”— as much as you want of it without it affecting your work life. Being single does not mean being lonely—it means that you can live your life to the fullest without caring what other people think. You can leave your house a mess, read your favorite book for hours, totally “own” the TV remote, eat whatever you want without judgment, and even stay in your pajamas all day. Single people know that solitude definitely has its rewards.
We have all felt the pressure of having to be coupled but in an age where less traditional lifestyles are accepted, just go for what you want and don’t let anyone stop you. Being alone gives you more time for exercise and health-related activity as it has been noted in recent surveys–as well as time for self-indulgence.
Traveling alone is one of the greatest gifts that a single person can experience. While some people are afraid of getting lost in foreign lands, with the Internet, travel apps, GPS and people speaking English in most countries, you do not have much to fear. Imagine the beauty of winging it on a trip through Europe with a Eurorail pass and booking hotels as you go!
“Going solo” is not without its comments from others who feel that being coupled up is the only way to go. The ages-old “why are you still single” question pops its ugly head up periodically in every single person’s life—and as far as being the “third wheel” when going out with couples, this situation has really become less of an issue in the past couple of decades. Just as it has become accepted that men and women can be “just friends,” no one but the most old-fashioned feel that leisurely fun needs to be in an all-couples or all-singles situation.
