We’re sure you’ve never thought about it, but being single, even for a short time, can be pretty fun and just as rewarding as being in a relationship. So what happens if you decide to be alone for a whole year?
You will focus more on yourself. When you don’t have a partner, you can improve your own needs and understand everything you need to do for yourself.
You will more easily achieve your goals when you are not in a relationship; you can set as many targets as you want without worrying if they will affect others. You can do things as slowly or as quickly as you want, and you will be amazed at what you can achieve on your own. Achieving a goal is refreshing.
You will learn what it is like to be alone. Being alone with your thoughts is overwhelming. There is a lot of time for reflection and creativity, which will help you grow.
You will learn a lot about yourself. When you don’t have a partner to give back or do things for you, it’s all on you. This can be stressful but also liberating, and you can handle it. You’ve probably underestimated yourself, but it’s time to embrace your potential that has been dormant for too long. When you get to know yourself, it will be significantly easier to understand others.
You will appreciate your friends more. Many people seem to drift away from their friends when they get into a relationship. This is quite uncomfortable. But if you stay single for a year and spend more time with your friends, you will learn to appreciate who they are and what they do for you.
You will understand what you want. The more time you have to yourself, the more you will learn what you want out of life, love, career, etc. When you are alone, you think more about yourself. While when you are in a relationship, you have to consider how your desires will affect your partner, making you dismiss some of your wants for a while. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it’s healthy to learn what you want out of life first.
You will have more to offer in the next relationship. You just spent a whole year getting to know yourself and figuring out what you want out of life. Now you know precisely what you are looking for in a partner.
