You get to focus on PROJECT YOU.
Cliché as it seems, being single can only mean more time with yourself! You don’t need company of other people all the time just to have fun. You can go on a date with yourself, explore new things, and discover the world on your own. It's more fun and life-changing that way. Also, being single allows you to do just about anything–the world is your oyster, and nothing and no one can stop you from chasing your dreams.
You learn to grow and discover yourself.
Although being in a relationship can bring out the good and bad in you, flying solo lets you grow and allows you to discover yourself on a deeper level. Doing things on your own can also be pretty liberating, and the fact that you don’t need anyone’s approval to do anything can be exhilarating! Try to go on a hike, have a coffee date with a book, or just spend time with yourself at home–these are the moments that let you discover things about yourself you weren’t even aware of.
You become a strong and independent woman.
Yes, having someone to spend the rest of your life with is nice, but you don’t have to rush into a relationship. You’ll get there someday. When you’re single, you learn how to do things on your own and that can build self-confidence. You create your own happiness, and you don’t need a man to complete you.
You are already more than enough.
There are some women who measure their worth based on the relationship they’re in. Although having a significant other can feel comforting, it’s also important to learn how to be your own person, and not depend your happiness on a relationship. It's better to wait for years for Mr. Right than settling for anyone just so you can have someone who will validate your worth as a person.
It’s a season to live for the moment.
You get to enjoy life to the fullest since you’re focused on your dreams and the things you want to accomplish—no distractions whatsoever. Don’t tire yourself worrying and finding The One. He’ll come in to your life, so you just have to be patient about it. Try to enjoy life while you wait, and maybe, just maybe, you’ll meet him unexpectedly.
