We don't understand why, until now, people still see being single as a sad and lonely time. Sure, we do most things alone whenever we're not in a relationship, but that doesn't mean we feel lonely.

Singlehood is actually the best time to get to know yourself and love yourself better. We do a lot of things we haven't done before, try out new activities, and get into something we're passionate about. It's a time of learning and fulfilling our dreams and goals. To give you a better look at being single and having fun while you're at it, just read what some girls have to say about it in their stories submitted to Candy Feels.

Alyanna Alvarez: "I Am Thankful to Choose the Single Life"

"It's really been fun, those years of being single. People actually said that my life looked boring and lonely, but it was way too far from that. I have lived the best years of my life being single. I don't need a man to light up my world because I have my own light from within. I don't need a man to keep the fire burning inside me. My entire being is enough to keep me going through life no matter how hard it gets.

"Those years helped me establish this kind of person I never thought I could be a strong and independent woman who needs no man in her life. I am thankful to choose the single life. I never realized until then how important it is to spend time with yourself. Solitude will allow you to free your mind and allow it to breathe fresh air. It will also give you the chance to discover yourself. It gets tough at times but you'll overcome it when you finally realize the joys of exploring your life alone.
