A lot of things happen in your twenties, even with your friends. One is going to live together, and the other is even thinking about children. In the meantime, you are still living your single life. Your relationships don’t last; you don’t like anyone (enough) or don’t need them.
Do you also feel that you are lagging behind the rest? Uncalled for! It’s okay if you’re single in your twenties, and we’ll tell you why.
You can find out who you are without a partner
Whether positive or negative, a partner influences the way you think and what you think. Of course, everyone has their own opinion, and a relationship does not have to mean that your ideals suddenly change.
Still, being single generally means thinking about what you think about something. You only get to know yourself when you are alone.
You find out what you want in life
Figuring out who you are as an individual also means learning what you want in life. No discussions about wet towels on the floor or your friend not wanting to say why he or she is grumpy. Instead, you can put your energy and time into figuring out what you like and want to achieve.
As a result, you also know better what suits you well and what you are looking for in a relationship. You may find that you enjoy being alone. That’s perfectly fine, of course: after all, you don’t have to date, no matter what society says.
Living, stepping out of your comfort zone, making decisions: it makes you a lot more independent if you have to do it all yourself. That’s the beauty of being single. Of course, you can ask for help from your family or friends, but it is still nice that you can trust and build on yourself.
You can do whatever you want
The advantage of being single: you don’t have to take anything or anyone into account. Spontaneous road trip or a week on holiday? Check or moving to another country? You can do whatever (and whoever!) you want, whenever you want. No holiday schedules that you have to put next to each other, no: you decide how you organize your life.
“Love yourself before loving anyone else” You’ve probably seen this statement on Pinterest, and it sticks. Self-love is significant in life. It’s good to have someone who loves you, but do you love yourself?
By being on your own in your twenties, you also learn to love yourself. You will learn to see yourself as a priority and find that you can be better alone. If you can be happy with your own company, you’ve come a long way.
