Think of it as a prolonged me-time.
Social distancing is hard for everyone, and if you’re single it can be lonely at times.
Spending time alone is not always a bad thing, but when you’ve been away from your friends for weeks at a time, you start to feel the impact more.
A part of you may think that if you had someone social distancing would be easier than it feels right now, and you wouldn’t be so tired by loneliness.
At least then, you’d be tired of being home with someone (perhaps) than having no option at all.
It can appear that someone who is in a relationship, living with family members or single at home with kids, has an easier time being distant from others because they have people there to help fight against loneliness.
When you’re single, and if you live alone, you do not have that option.
Social distancing can mean weeks before you get a hug or hang out with a friend, see the mom or dad you don’t live with in-person, with the element of human touch included.
Now at the moment, I’m not single but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to tell you to enjoy this time.
Also, I’m not going to tell you that you won’t find love again, cause whether you’ve never been in a relationship, or you’re a newly single, we all run our course on the single life.
You really need to not take this time for granted, especially because you don’t want to have to miss it.
When you meet the right person it could make you never want to go back, cause being with them is better than being alone.
I will say my first experience with the single like most of us was when I was younger, but I personally feel you really appreciate it when you’re fresh out of a relationship.
That’s when you involve yourself in the world of dating and start realizing how dry your phone actually is.
Now I get that you’re possibly going through a tough time right now being single and don’t feel the best with your current situation.
I don’t want to push the, “You’ll meet someone” button because you will but right now you need to be happy on your own and find out what’s really lowering your spirits at the moment.
So overall being single is actually a good thing. If you’re dreading it you shouldn’t, because at the end of the day you have more time to focus on yourself, your goals and what you need out of life.
You can do all this with a partner of course, but you need to make sure this partner is right for you, someone who understands your life isn’t all their yet, also someone who will grow with you.
God knows your worth and he sees all that you deserve and your partner should see the same.
