There are people out there who think that being single is sad, depressing and something to avoid at all cost.

I’ve known people who stay in unhappy relationships because they don’t want to be single again. If you ask me, that’s much worse than being single!

Personally, I love being single. I love the freedom and independence that it affords me. I’m also the kind of person who needs alone time to relax and recharge.

Being single is not a bad thing and can teach you a lot. Below are 4 life lessons that being single has taught me and can teach you!

I’ve considered myself to be an independent person for the better part of my life. Being single has shown me how to be truly independent.

Going to movies alone, eating out alone, sitting at the beach or taking a walk in the park by myself felt awkward at first.

But, over time, I have learned to embrace my independence.

Doing exactly what I want to do, when I want to do it, is a true feeling of freedom and independence that I never could have experienced while I was in a relationship.

Being single has taught me to embrace and love being in my own company, and I have grown as a person because of it.
