Gone are the days that single people were being looked down by those people who are not single in status. It’s not that because more and more people are living single these days and is dominating, but it’s because of that fact that singles contribute more that yields positive effect to the society that’s making our world a better place.
Back in the day, single people were viewed as inferior to those people that were in a relationship mainly because of the misconception that being single is often associated with loneliness, sadness and a life of sorrow and misery.
But as years passed, studies based on hundreds of thousands of people from different countries show that the conventional wisdom that most people know about being single is wrong.
Being single proves to be happier and get more emotional fulfillment
Compared to married people and those that are in a relationship, single people have more friends and bigger social networks. Without limitations and constraints from a possible jealous partner, single people maintain heartier relationships with their friends, family, co-workers and the people around them.
And by hearty relationships, it resonates to those we could text or call anytime if we’re in trouble at night, to have a lunch or dinner with anytime when we had nobody, to go on a night out and to just have someone whenever we need someone to talk to.
It follows that with this support system that single people maintain, they get to do more of emotional fulfillment. They were happier, less lonely and had better mental and emotional health.
Well, it’s only natural for single people to have nurtured more friends that drives the loneliness and the sadness because they are the ones who most likely to return the favor.
Because single people have more time to give
It’s one of the most unfair advantage that single people have that others don’t have the luxury of having.
According to psychologist, with or without them realizing, single peoples have enough time for themselves that they naturally enter a state of restorative solitude where it allows them to regain back their energy, check in with their feelings and appreciate their own meaning and purpose of existence.
By this, we could tell that the longer we spend being single in a phase of our lives, the more time we spend to get to know and understand ourselves in a deeper sense.
And because single people have deeper if not full understanding of their own well-being, they also have a better view of the world and shares a positive outlook in life that’s touched those who once put a wrong interpretation and now realize and respect the power that holds being single.
Single people have more freedom and means
Since they have all the time in the world to themselves, they have laser focus to most likely attain all their dreams and aspirations in life without distractions from a partner and given the support system that most single people have from their big social networks.
Resources like time, moral support and even financial means will not be a trouble because single people have it all for themselves to spend.
This leads to another misconception that single people are selfish people and only cares about what they want to do since they are free with no concerns for the wants and needs of everybody else. With freedom leads ill-fated choices that will make every single persons regret, thus as a result, be sad and lonely.
Single people actually tends to give more. For the reason that the freedom, financial means and the time that they have is more than enough to be shared to the people around us that needs tending, like our family, friends and even our neighbors. Single people are more likely to show up when other people need help.
The single community is growing
I don’t even know if I’m going to be sad or happy about the new positive insights that single people are getting in this day and age because more and more people are living single and even those who are married are getting around to it in their later years like some kind of an uncool trend.
It seems like everyone is considering the busy life this information age we are currently living and the single people were no longer the only ones who value freedom more than being in a relationship recognizing the correlation of happiness out of it.
It is evident that even those who are in a relationship and married take on board realizing that the freedom a single person has is a great opportunity to live the best of what life has to offer and there is more to a single life than meets the eye.
Now, I’m not saying that with this new positive insights and attention every single person is getting, we are better off single for the rest of our lives.
What I’m getting at is that one way or another, we will get our own shot to get to meet The Right One for us as we may or may not be single forever. Let’s leave that it to our fate and destiny.
In the meantime, as you undergo this phase of your life, enjoy being single. Live the best of what your single life presents and squeeze every ounce of happiness out of it while it lasts!
“If you aren’t happy being single, you won’t be happy taken. Happiness comes from within, not from men.”
