Many people think that when you are single in your 20s, you are living a boring and lonesome life. This can be true at times, but sometimes it depends on how a person handles their status as “single.” It’s all about the mindset and how you deal with the situation. Should you mope around while waiting for the one or have fun because there’s no one to stop you?
The truth is, the best time to be single is when you’re in your 20s. It’s when you enter the real world and start to earn your money. It can be the most liberating time of your life.
Being single is not a bad idea at all when you know to yourself that you can enjoy the following:
1. You can do whatever you want
Feel free to do anything that will make you happy. Whether you want to do crazy things or travel alone, if that’s what would make you happy, then do it. There’s no need to worry that you left someone behind or you have to get someone’s permission first.
2. You can focus on you dreams
Having a partner can change your focus. This may or may not be true, but having a partner in yours 20s can be a big influence in changing your focus. It is hard to prioritize what you want when you know to yourself that someone does not agree at all. In that case, being single for a while is a good choice if you want to chase the dreams that you have in mind.
3. You can save money
Money will always be a big deal. It is hard to save money, because being with someone means you have to make an effort to spend on things that will make each other happy. If you are single, you can try to live a frugal life and give value to every cent that you spend. You are motivated to save for something that you want the most.
4. You have more time for family and friends
You realize what you should prioritize the most. This means you can spend most of your time with people whom you feel you have forgotten. You can join in as many family reunions as possible and spend more time with friends as you all bond till morning.
5. You learn to love yourself the most
You realize that before you fully learn to love someone else, its yourself that you should love first. When no one is there to pamper you with love, you don’t feel bad at all since you chose to love yourself even more. Loving and taking care of yourself is a better way to prepare you for the coming of your future partner.
Yes, it may feel nice to have someone who will go to the movies with you. Yes, it’s pretty amazing to attend events with a date. But good things still happen and can happen when you’re still single.
So while the one is not yet here, you can spend the time celebrating you.
