By Mitzi J Hernandez

Women who are used to being alone are unique and mysterious creatures. Many do not understand them, at first.

However, once you know more about their solitude, you will see why these women are the strongest and most genuine people you will ever meet. Here are 10 reasons why.

1. They don’t allow toxic people in their lives.

These girls are better than most people at cutting people out of their lives with no hesitation. They will not associate with those who are toxic and negative.

Such women would rather be alone than waste their precious energy socializing with people that are no good for their soul. 

2. They are the most genuine friends.

They cultivate a small group of close friends. Thus, they are comfortable with their lives and don’t feel the need to keep adding more people.

They know that the people which are meant to be in their lives will effortlessly come and stay. Once you become their friend, you will receive the most genuine love and support. 

3. They are confident.

They have less of a need for peer acceptance than most. Moreover, they have a well-defined sense of identity and their actions are in line with their morals and beliefs.

They also have strong values, which come from having a strong sense of self. 

4. They are okay with being single.

They don’t care if they don’t have a romantic partner in their lives. These women seek a positive and fulfilling relationship and are willing to wait for it.

Hence, they don’t have the need to be with someone, because they are content enjoying their own company. And until they find a suitable partner, they use all their time to grow, reach their goals, and work on building a better life, for a better future. 

5. They are the best partners.

When they date, they date with good intentions, but it takes someone special to be a part of their world.

When they let you be a part of their lives, they’re invested in you and will remain invested, no matter what. They’ll defend you when nobody else will and be by your side when everyone else abandons you.

6. They are emotionally strong.

They are amazingly strong-willed when tough situations come their way. Moreover, they have incredible focus and willpower as a result of their frequent reflection and alone time.

Even though they can feel overwhelmed by stressful situations, they decide to spend some time alone to recharge, so they can get in touch with their inner strength. 

7. They don’t rely on other people.

They are used to running their life efficiently without any help. Likewise, they know that it’s very hard to find people that are dependable.

So, they have learned to not depend on anyone but themselves. They struggle with letting others do things for them, as they aren’t used to anyone looking out for them. 

8. They don't let anyone mess with them.

Women who are used to being alone have worked really hard to find their inner peace. Their solitude has gotten them to a place where they will not allow negative outside forces to ruin their aura.

They will never apologize for being who they are and will always stay true to themselves. 

9. They have a strong connection to themselves.

These women have learned to truly get to know themselves. They enjoy doing their favorite things alone — reading books, writing, walking in the park, playing an instrument, going on solo dates, learning new things, etc.

Spending a lot of time alone gives them the freedom to do things they actually love doing. And through their alone time, they discover hidden parts of themselves and the world around them. 

10. They are comfortable in their own skin.

They have learned to live in their own skin — to be happy with their flaws, to take care of themselves, and most importantly, to love themselves.

Hence, they live comfortably in the skin that houses their soul, because they know that the power to be truly beautiful is not reflected in the eyes of others, but comes from within. They know that true beauty is self-defined, self-created, and self-celebrated.
