This is for the beautiful and amazing single people:
A letter from my 19 year old self.
I have to admit I get a little jealous when I see my friends with their s/o but then I see them going through some problems that a single person doesn't have to deal with so I feel a little better lol.
When you're single, you don't expect a good morning or goodnight text or have to send it. You have all the bed to yourself. Nobody needs to grab the covers away from you on a cold night. You can go to sleep peacefully knowing that nobody's cheating on you. You can go on a date with yourself anytime, anywhere you want. You can talk to whoever you want without anybody getting jealous or going crazy. Your phone is on 100% battery all day because it's dry af since nobody is going to blow it up with texts. You can go grab food without arguments of what to eat or where to eat.
You can eat in peace without anybody getting mad because they didn't get the food that they want. You can eat all you want without feeling guilty of not saving anyone some of it or sharing. You can play your games all day long in peace because nobody is going to complain about not giving them attention. Or you can buy all the makeup you want without anybody questioning, "don't you have enough?" You can dress sexy, quirky or be your weird self without anyone telling you to cover yourself up or ask "are you going to go out looking like that?"
You can go take your friends out or go out by yourself for a drive and discover the world one day at a time without feeling bad about it since you don't have to update someone of your whereabouts. You can go out clubbing, dance like no one's watching, and sing your heart out to karaoke without anyone getting embarrassed of your out-of-tune talent.
Being single is not a curse. It is a blessing that you are saving yourself for someone out there who is worth it to give your singleness away.
I don't know why people think being single is bad. It is not bad at all. It doesn't mean you are not worth loving or wanting, or that you're too picky or your standards are way too high. You choose to be single because you want to enjoy your life without needing anyone to complete it. You are confident your love will come your way when the time is right.
Valentine's Day or not, you have yourself to love and can spread that love to those who don't get any. Smile. You never know when someone is falling in love with your smile. :)
Happy Valentine's Day everyone. :D
