We all want to be with a partner that poets talk about. We all want to find someone with whom we can have a Disney story. We all want the love that has been talked about by all the poets in the history of literature. And that is okay.
However, it is not okay if the priority is being in a relationship. No, your priority should be being happy no matter what your relationship status is. Because being in a relationship for the sake of being in one will have no impact on your happiness. It will never make your life meaningful and fulfilling.
Yes, it is true that none of us want to go solo and find ourselves lonely all the time. But the truth is, if you date someone just for the sake of being with someone, sooner or later you will find yourself even lonelier.
That is why you need to remind yourself that being alone is better than settling for the wrong person.
Being alone is better than settling for someone who does not deserve you. Someone who doesn’t love you the way you deserve to be loved. Someone who does not treat you right, who does not respect you. Someone who is not scared at the thought of losing you.
Being alone is better than settling for someone who does not make you happy. Someone who does not understand your feelings, your emotions, your desires, and does not make an attempt to understand. Someone who is never there to catch you when you are falling down.
Being alone is better than settling for someone who cannot see your worth. Someone who only sees the flaws in you. Someone who only notices your insecurities and weaknesses. Someone who is more than willing to criticize you rather than reminding you of your strength and potential.
Being alone is better than settling for someone who does not deserve your attention. Your time, your kindness, your passion, your love.
Being alone is better than settling for someone who is only interested in taking advantage of you. Someone who comes to you only when they need something from you. Someone who compliments you only when they need a favor. Someone who is not available when you need them.
