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

Those “love lives here” Facebook posts might really make you feel like the world’s worst loser, wait until the same girl/ guy in the “love lives” here inboxes you.
Being single can be hard, but it doesn’t have to be all about crying and feeling sorry for yourself, here’s how you can turn your single days into the best days of your life.
1. Being single gives you time to discover the inner you.

Sometimes being with someone makes us forget “I”.
So often relationships makes us consumed with the whole idea of “we” and this can make us lose ourselves in the process.
So being single gives you an opportunity to discover your inner self, it helps you to reconnect with yourself and it’s a time for self-introspection which allows you to let go of the past and start all over again.
2. Being single allows you an opportunity to explore new things.

Everything in life happens for a reason, so often after break ups, we only concentrate on all the negative things and the “I shouldn’t haves”, however after some time when our hearts begin to heal, only then do we realise the hidden mystery behind the breakup.
There is always someone somewhere waiting to meet you, so you should see being single as the opportunity to open yourself up to new discoveries.
3. Allow you the opportunity to recover from your previous relationship

During a break up period people usually get in and out of relationships in the hope that they will get over their exes. However, the new relationship only makes one live in an illusion that everything is OK, until the reality hits you then they end up hurting more and hurting the other person.
Being single makes you heal naturally without having rebounds and allows you to heal with the support of friends and family. This can also be a great opportunity to explore the world.
4. Being single is an opportunity to reconnect with family and friends.

Normally during relationships, one becomes lost in love and they tend to spend less time with their friends and family. Being single can, therefore, serve as a great opportunity to have fun and go out with friends and family.
Spending time with the loved ones can help you relax and they’re support and open arms can help you to heal faster. Being around them allows you to share both your happiness and sorrow.
