Benefit of Being Single

Updated on March 12, 2012

There are times in our life that we are alone. Some people try to make the best of the situation and use that time wisely. While others are so afraid of that moment they are alone they go to great lengths to ensure they are not. Being in a relationship is incredible when it works out. There are times that those relationships no matter how hard we try just do not work out. We then pretty much find ourselves alone, and this is a great time to take advantage of some of the benefits of being alone.


One of the greatest advantages to being alone is that you are now in possession of freedom. Then we have the freedom to do what you want, when you want, and how you want to. In a relationship, you may not always get to do the things you want to do. You than have to settle on a compromise, to make sure both parties are going to like to do the next activity. When you are alone, you can go and choose your own activities without having to make someone else happy.


Being out of a relationship and on your own is a great opportunity for you to help grow yourself. If, you are one of those people that always need to be clinging on to someone then this is your opportunity to help yourself out of the dependency. Being able to handle things on your own is always the best because in the end you only have yourself. So, take the opportunity to understand and grow yourself away from the dependency of others.

Know thy Self

When you ask people, if they truly know who they are the majority will probably say, “sure” they know who they are. However, most really have not taken the time to try and truly understand themselves. It is important to take the time out and truly try to understand yourself and what you want to accomplish. If, you do not take the time out to understand yourself and you continue to jump from one relationship to another because you are afraid of being alone that is what will continue to happen. Take the opportunity to get to know yourself and what you truly want out of a relationship.

Being alone is not bad at all. It is an opportunity for you to truly understand yourself and where you are going. What you want out of life. What you want out of the next relationship. What you want in this short period that we call life. So, take the time and opportunity and enjoy it.

    Marriage is not for everyone. But, if you are single enjoy it and what life is offering you a chance to do. But, when you find the right one the only thing that will be going crazy is your heart :)
