Just because you’re single, doesn’t mean you should be sad
Author:  the Teapot

In the world we're living in today, having a partner is pretty much a big deal. It's like everywhere we look there are couples holding hands, guys holding their girlfriends' handbags, and other actions that show "affection". Single guys and single girls often go "chick hunting" or even "Hot chunky man hunting" just to find a partner. This boyfriend-girlfriend trend has taken over the minds of our youth. I'm not saying that it is bad to be in love or that love is bad. But the fact that we can't be satisfied with being single is bad because it is unfair to look for contentment and satisfaction from other people.
We all have this idea that we will be happy when we have a boyfriend or a girlfriend. And to most single people, they feel sad and degraded whenever they see a couple. Being in a relationship doesn't instantly mean that you are happy. Because no matter what, if you're not happy with what you have, if you're not happy with yourself, you will never be happy with or without a partner. Sooner or later you will come to realize that you aren't contented with your partner and that will lead to cheating which will lead to more problems. We have to know that it's better to be happy alone rather than be with someone, yet you're unhappy.

We should be able to see that we were born into this world alone, we’ve been able to eat, drink, and survive without a boyfriend or a girlfriend for how many years. This whole “I need a partner” idea shouldn’t take over us. We often look down on ourselves whenever someone would ask us if we’re in a relationship and then we’re obligated to say that we’re single. To some, it makes them think that they’re being made fun of, or insulted. If that’s the case, don’t say you’re single. Instead say, I’m strong enough on my own. That’s the downside of being in a relationship. We cease to be self-reliant and once we end up single again, we feel like it’s the end of the world, like you just can’t live without that person. But truth is, we can.
The fact that you’re single doesn’t mean you’re condemned to be sad and that you should just watch couples cuddling and feel bad for yourself. No. Live. Have fun, surround yourself with people who cheers you up when they can bring you down. Be happy. Don’t rush because love will find you.
