10 Things Your Decision to Stay Single Says About You

“Single is not a status. It is a word that best describes a person who is strong enough to live and enjoy life without depending on others.”

1 – You’re Independent

You got this! You don’t need somebody to hold your hand every step along the way. You know your strengths and you know how to use them.

2 – You Know What You Want in Life

You have goals. Ambitions. And you refuse to let anybody or anything get in your way.

3 – You Trust in Your Capabilities

You’ve been through a lot and it’s built up your skill and confidence. You trust in your ability to make it through just about anything.

4 – You’re Not Afraid of Adventure

You take risks, even if they’re calculated ones. You’re not afraid of taking the road less traveled with only yourself as a guide.

5 – You Value Relationships

You don’t believe that marriage is the only relationship in life. You treasure your relationships with friends and family and you’re loyal to those you love.

6 – You Don’t Listen to “Shoulds”

You know that you’re bucking society’s ideas about how to live your life. And you don’t care. You live life on your terms, not somebody else’s.

7 – You’re Honest With Yourself

You’re not afraid to confront your reality and your own strengths and weaknesses. You know that you’re a complete package of one and you’re okay with that.

8 – You’re Courageous

In a society built around couplehood, you’re brave enough to stand alone. You can’t hide behind anybody else, so you get quite good at facing your fears.

9 – You Accept Responsibility For Your Own Happiness

When things are bad, you only have yourself to look at. And to make things better, you only have yourself to turn to. You know that only you can control your well-being.

10 – You Don’t Believe That Love is “One Size Fits All”

You know that love comes into our lives in many guises. Some stay, some flow through leaving only a whisper. You embrace them as they come and release them as they go.
