This took a lot of work. I still have bad days here and there but you know what? It’s ok. I have love from friends and family. My happiness in life is not tied to whether or not I’m in a relationship. 4 months ago
Entries from everyone
I’ve always been single, but as of lately, it’s been getting more difficult to overcome that loneliness that accompanies being single.
I enjoyed being single when I was younger and I forgot how to enjoy it now. I guess it’s everyone finally finding someone while I’m feeling left behind.
This isn’t meant to be a depressing post, I want to figure out ways to not feel so down about this.
I know some ways are to always be learning, take a class of something I enjoy, exercise, just finding ways to better myself and be happy with myself.
Rather than just sitting around, doing nothing… I thought of a couple things I could into to make life moer enjoyable.1) Get back into photography
2) Play my flute again.
I used to always love doing photography. My mom has a SLR camera somewhere around here and once we find it, I plan to go out with friends and take “professional” photos. lol
I stopped this for a very long time, and I don’t know if it’ll get me anywhere but at least I’d be getting better and more confident at something I have always enjoyed doing. Maybe I could find a ukulele player somewhere who would want to do a duet. I think it’d be groovy ^_-
That just makes you feel better about yourself which will also increase happiness while being single. Being single, there is that extra time to better yourself in that way.
I’ve always enjoyed traveling. I’ve never been that far, but maybe one day, I will get to travel outside the country. I got a passport that has never been put into use…
I’m not sure what else there is I can do quite yet, but hopefully these can be a start in my journey of enjoying the single life. The first 3 are doable, & the last one will come in time. 9 months ago
except maybe at the very beginnings. I’m either not that good at it, or I find the wrong men, or I attract intense emotions that are short-lived, or whatever. It may not be very important why, because I don’t plan to be in this distressing and painful situation anymore.
In contrast, I am very happy by myself. It’s been less than 3 weeks since we’ve finalised, or formalised, our breakup, and while I’ve been indescribably miserable at first (you have no idea), I’m already feeling almost happy now. Three weeks. After seven and a half years. With a man that I adore (still do, I’m afraid, but I’m almost over him by now). 10 months ago
Parties, drinking, hanging out with friends, and not worrying about a boyfriend. I’m pretty sure 2 years of that was the best fun i’ve ever had. I just got into a relationship, so i consider this goal complete. 11 months ago
