Being single isn’t as bad as it may seem. There are times when you will feel lonely, but it gives you a chance to find yourself again. Love can hurt you physically, mentally and emotionally. From my past experience, I can tell you that it feels so amazing being able to have that significant other you can talk to all day and will make you feel like you’re on top of the world, but there are many ups and downs in relationships. So,
everything isn’t going to be sweet like peaches and cream all the time in a relationship, and being single can be for the best.
It is so hard to move on from a relationship that you have been holding onto for so long. For me, I have been crushing on the same guy since the summer before my freshman year of high school. I was only 13 years old at the time, so let’s keep in mind that was over 4 years ago as I am 18 years old now. We’ve dated off-and-on over the past 4 years. We aren’t currently dating, but that relationship is still affecting me today. After our breakup, I cried for months, and I can assure you I am NOT exaggerating. Every time I logged onto social media, I would see pictures and videos of happy couples. Then I would start reminiscing about the past and I would be crying before I noticed it. Since we haven’t been talking as much as we have in the
past, I’ve started focusing more on myself again, and I’m realizing that being single is the best for me right now.
I have had more time to focus on my success in the future. My grades have improved, and I started playing sports again. I have never realized how happy I could be single, and I am not depressed as often as I used
to be. I have also learned to be less dependent of someone when it comes to my heart and how I feel about myself. I try to do as much work as possible, or anything to keep my mind off of that relationship. Lately, I have been having more fun than I ever had before. Being single has made me more confident.
My first break up made me feel horrible. I often sit and think about my past, but then I realize I am doing much better single. My confidence, ego, and personality have changed so much because of that relationship, and it has made me become more aware of my feelings and what makes me happy. Being single is not terrible because it gives you time to perfect yourself.
