It’s common for single girls to have pets. They’re company, they make us smile, and they give us unconditional love, which we return to them. Pets won’t stand you up, let you down, or make you ever doubt yourself. Next to family members, pets can be the most reliable, trustworthy things in your life. They’re also great for our health and wellbeing. Numerous studies have shown that people with pets are less prone to stress and anxiety, and are able to think more clearly and be more rational. The healing and spiritual powers that come through owning and looking after our pets, cannot be underestimated.
9. Love your single life!
As mentioned, you have to learn to love being single, if you’re ever going to love being in a committed relationship. Inner happiness does not come from being with somebody and having somebody to love, it comes from loving yourself first. Being single is not tragic, it is not sad, it is not unfortunate or a backward step. Rather, it is a vital stepping stone to the next level of your life journey. Achieving contentment and happiness as a single girl, is a million times more important than grabbing the nearest guy just to fill a hole in your life. Because when that guy is gone, there will still be a hole. A confident and happy single girl does not have holes to fill, just extra space in her life closet.
To achieve happiness as a single girl, you’ve got to put yourself out there. Sign up for some salsa classes, join the local art group, go on a cooking course. Do something, to get back in touch with yourself and what you like to do. All the traditional ‘dating’ things, like going out for dinner, or catching a show, you should be comfortable doing for yourself, by yourself. Mingle and socialize with friends as much as you can, too, but don’t do it as a means to ‘finding someone’. Do it because you’re happy in your own company. And when you are that self-confident, it will show to everyone around you.
So don’t avoid Valentine’s Day, make an event of it instead. Your date is you, your loved one is you, and the person you’re going to spend all that money on, is you. You’re a lucky girl, and don’t let anyone tell you different.
