17 Uplifting Quotes For People Who Are Single And LOVING It

Do the words lonely, insecure, and unloved sound familiar? These are the feelings we (personally or as a society) often associate with being single. But, why should they be?

Single-hood can actually be one of the most liberating experiences of our life, if we allow it to be.

Independent, satisfied, exhilarated, confident, happy, loved: These are emotions that we should strive for. Your relationship status doesn't define your happiness or the emotions you allocate to it — You do.

Here are some uplifting, positive quotes to remind you of just that!
