So I follow a lot of bloggers on instagram and one in particular posted a blog post on being happy being single. It really stood out to me and I loved her concept on it so I decided I wanted to do a similar post. With Valentines day being today, or well whenever you’re reading this, It could be hard for some of us single people lol. Honestly to me though Valentines Day is just another day. I think its a stupid holiday! Like why take 1 day out of the year to show somebody you love them, shouldn’t that be everyday??? I don’t know, to me I think people and stores and tv or whatever it is, they hype it up to much. Soooooo with all that being said here are a few things that people who are single should think about! Being single ain’t all that bad (;
Embrace Being Single
Why not embrace it? Take this time to focus on YOURSELF. I think people tend to forget that in order to be happy in a relationship you should be happy with yourself first. Go shopping by yourself, take drives alone, watch movies alone. Take this opportunity to make improvements for yourself.
Don’t look back
Move forward and not backwards. If someone broke your heart let them go. They don’t deserve you or your time. Its taken a lot for me to understand that to. But I’ve learned that if someone wastes my time I don’t need to be wasting my time or energy on them trying to fix things because they don’t deserve it. You shouldn’t have to look back and think what could have gone differently. You’ll learn who really cares for you and wants nothing but to bring happiness into your life. Not play games with you. When you get the courage to move forward you’re helping yourself in the long run. And let me tell you its a damn good feeling when you do!
Focus on the good
I read a little quote that had this saying in it and I loved it. You should focus on the good. Think about the good things in your life. Its a good feeling when you’re not constantly worrying about someone else or what they think when you’re out with friends. You don’t have to wait for someones approval. Focus on being happy and living your best life being single! Now i’m not saying it’ll be a bad thing when someone awesome comes along but for right now in the moment FOCUS ON THE GOOD!
You’re not alone
You are not the only one my friend!! Being single on valentines day and constantly being reminded how single you are, yeah i’m right there with you but so are many many people!! Its okay and like I’ve said a million times embrace it. There are days where it gets to me and makes me sad but I quickly dig myself out of that hole and take in that I have a group of friends that I love and i’m surrounded by many loved ones. And so are you.
So yes being single can suck sometimes I get it!! Go listen to some happy songs on spotify, buy yourself a bottle of wine and order some dang pizza on this lovers day if you are spending it alone because honestly… I think thats exactly what im going to do lol. I love you guys and I will see you very soon for my BIRTHDAY post!!!! Happy Valentines Day<3
