Many women have told themselves that they don’t need a man to be happy and yet many of them fail to implement this philosophy into their lives.
It’s quite fascinating how each of us strives to find that one true partner. Someone who’ll feed our soul and heart with unconditional love and who’ll make an effort to keep us happy at any cost.
However, this cliché to find a job, find a partner, get married, and have kids seems a bit worn out by now. It’s okay if you want to fit into societal norms and that’s why you’re trying to accomplish all of that but have you ever asked yourself whether that’s really necessary to be happy in life?
Since when has this become the standard for when you’re trying to find eternal happiness? We’re constantly bombarded by these fake ideas of what true love and satisfaction are that we’ve forgotten the fact that not everyone is the same.
Now is the time to put an end to this deception because you don’t need a partner to be happy. On top of that, you don’t need to follow any societal rules and instead, you can make your own.
You’re the sole creator of your own happiness and not a man, remember that! And this is why:
You have all the time in the world to prioritize your needs and wishes over anyone.
When you’re single and not ready to mingle, you can choose your own fun activities, what to watch on Netflix, when you’re going to go out with your friends, and all the other things that people in a relationship simply can’t do.
And why is that? Because they usually have to compromise with their partner on those things so they have to consult them and put their needs above their own.
On the other hand, if you’re single, you get to live your best life without stressing too much about whether or not the other person is ignoring you or if he’s cheating on you for example.
You set your own rules and you can spoil yourself the way you deserve. If you wish to spend more time with your family and friends, then you get the chance to do that.
You only need yourself and not a man to be happy. While others put their happiness in their partner’s hands, you get to be independent and not worry about anyone else.
Many people spend most of their life searching for a perfect partner just to find out that such a person doesn’t exist at all. Love is all about compromising and talking to each other while figuring out what your next step is.
However, the only way to be truly happy is by learning to appreciate yourself more and by making yourself a priority. Once you achieve that, you don’t have to look for that one missing piece because you are enough.
You don’t need to seek validation from others and you don’t certainly need a man to feel loved. You’re perfectly fine on your own.
The only person who won’t ever leave you is yourself.
The truth about life is that people will come and go as they please. However, the relationship you have with yourself is for eternity.
You only need yourself and not a man to be happy because you’re perfectly happy on your own if you choose to be. Being single is always better than running after the wrong man.
Let’s say that you meet a guy who seems perfect at first. You go on a couple of dates with him and after some time, you start a romantic relationship.
However, once you start giving pieces of yourself to him, that’s when the real trouble begins. You see, he starts taking you for granted even though you opened up to him and let him be part of your life.
Eventually, he breaks your heart and leaves you shattered in a million pieces. And why would you do that to yourself?
If you’re not happy with someone, then you have always the option to leave! Know that loving yourself is the key to true happiness.
Don’t be worried about living your life to the fullest without a man. At the end of the day, the only person you have is yourself and no one else.
You don’t need a manipulator or a player to remind you of that. You only need yourself and not a man to be happy right now.
Remember, you’re alive and you have the opportunity to be whomever you want to be. You’re gorgeous in every way despite having flaws.
You’re strong, regardless of having your heart broken a couple of times and you’re loved because you have your family and friends who have your back.
You are responsible for your own happiness and loving yourself is all about that.
Even if others tell you otherwise, remember that falling in love with yourself isn’t optional but rather a necessity.
Society forces us to think that being in a relationship is more important than self-love and we can see that from all the Hollywood movies that show true love as something essential and necessary.
They convince you that you need someone in your life to be eternally happy.
But what about self-love? What about having enough self-respect?
Are those things even important to them? I guess not, since they don’t emphasize them enough.
If you ask me, if you don’t love yourself, then you’ll spend the rest of your life feeling empty and as if something is missing.
Maybe you blame yourself for all the times a man left you but you should only blame yourself for not prioritizing your own emotions and wishes above theirs.
Only when you give yourself enough love and attention will you have room in your heart for that special someone.
It all comes down to this: You only need yourself and not a man to be happy!
