Yes, you read that right. It's okay to be single, even though it's already 2021 and you may well be past your prime. Or maybe you're just starting to get into adulthood and everyone around you is falling madly in love except you.
It's okay to be single even when everyone seems to be getting married, having babies, or celebrating anniversaries. It's okay to be single even though Valentine's is just around the corner and there will be dozens and dozens of reminders that you don't have a partner.
Being single does not mean that you are alone.
Being single does not mean that you are a loser.
Being single does not mean that no one loves you or wants you.
Being single means you have time to discover who you really are. You have all the time in the world to focus on you, what makes you happy, what makes you whole, what makes you tick, and find out what your passion is.
Being single means you can explore the world without guilt. You are accountable only to yourself and no one else. You can go visit places you've only dreamt of and just be free to roam around and discover more of the world while discovering more about your limits.
Being single means that you can fall in love with yourself over and over again. It is about loving yourself, choosing yourself, and being with yourself without feeling alone. When you can do this, when you can spend time by yourself, with yourself, and feel happy about it, then it's time that you open yourself to falling for someone else.
Till that happens, remember: it's okay to be single.
