Many people feel that they can’t be truly happy unless they are in a relationship but always being in a relationship isn’t the best thing for you. If you’re always going from one relationship to another, how will you ever find out who you truly are if you never take the time to let yourself be.. Exactly that, yourself.
It is very possible to be happy without being in a relationship, you just need to have the right attitude towards your life. Sitting and thinking about how unhappy you are because you don’t have someone to call “yours” obviously won’t make you feel better.
How to Be Happy With Your Life Without Being in a Relationship.
Think positive. It’s very important that you think positive about your life. Don’t wake up in the morning with the ultimate notion that it’s going to be a horrible, depressing and lonely day. Wake up looking forward to the lunch you’re going to have with your girlfriends or the poker game you’re going to later that night with your buddies.
Make plans. Don’t go to work everyday and then come home to spend your evening alone every night. Spend time with your friends and family as much as you can. Since you aren’t in a relationship, that means you have plenty of time to spend with your friends and your family so take advantage of it.
Of course it’s important to call or email your friends often just to keep in touch, but it’s also important to get out with them. Whether you’re going to see a movie, going out to dinner or you are just staying in to watch some TV together at home.. It’s important to see them as much as you can.
Get a roommate. If you live alone, consider asking a friend to be your roommate so you don’t feel too lonely. Many people don’t like living alone because they don’t feel safe and they don’t like being alone, so if a friend moves in with you chances are you’ll feel much better.
Get ahead in your career. Before you decide to settle down, getting where you’d like to be in your career is probably whats best. You don’t want a relationship to hold you back from going somewhere in your career, what if your boss offered you a life changing trip to Germany or Rome to get a promotion, you wouldn’t want to take it if you were in a relationship right? Be happy with what you do and get where you want to be in life before you decide to get in a relationship.
Discover yourself. You can’t love someone until you learn to love yourself, so find who you are. Like I mentioned before, you can’t find out who you are if you are in a relationship, you’ll only find who you are with that person. Spend time thinking about what you’d like to accomplish in life and then act on them. If you’ve always dreamed of traveling, now is the time to go. Get involved in things you are interested in, maybe you’ve always wanted to learn how to play guitar or sew.. Take classes and learn.
When you aren’t in a relationship, there isn’t a boy or girl holding you back from doing what you really want to do and you can reach your goals before you marry and settle down. Being happy without a relationship is very possible, you just need to learn how to stay positive and look at the brighter side of things.
