Being single isn’t all that different from being in a relationship. Lovers will come and go, but you must live with yourself forever. Get comfortable with that fact and own it because single or not single, you will never own anyone else. When you’re single, it prompts you to look deep inside yourself and identify the person you really want to be whether you’re in a relationship or not.
1. Maraming oras sa barkada.
As we get older, and life gets faster – the time we once had for our friends, seems to diminish. Fitting in time for friends is sadly one of the first things to go when life gets busy, and before you know it – you hardly know the person you used to call your best friend. Spending time with friends is one of the few pleasures in life that can cost you very little, but reward you substantially. It is also proven to be one of the best ways to combat stress. Spending time with your friends can help melt away the cares of the world, and leave you a better person all around. This is one of the perks of being a single, having a quality time with their friends.
2. Hindi napupuyat tuwing gabi at syempre na naeenjoy mo ang sarili mo.
If you can’t stand to be alone by yourself, why would anyone else want to be with you? So many people can’t spend 15 minutes alone with themselves. We’re on our cell phones, on online dating services, hanging out with friends, family, co-workers and basically anyone who will put up with us until it’s time to go to bed. Then, we can fall asleep and not think about the fact we are doing it alone. In that case, you enjoy being with yourself! You can do what you like, when you like, with or without people.
3. Hindi kailangang mag share sa iba. Wala kang kahati. Sa madaling salita, magiging selfish ka.
There is nothing like the freedom of coming home, eating ice cream out of the carton, taking the last piece of chicken and not having to pick up someone else’s dirty underwear. When you’re in a relationship, you’re constantly weighing the impact of your choices on the man or the relationship as a whole, but when you’re single, you can be as selfish as you please. Most women in relationships spend all their time and energy on the man, the family, the relationship. In the end, there’s very little left over for themselves.
4. Wala kang dapat pakisamahan. Yung tipong hindi mo kailangang makipagplastikan sa iba para lang matanggap ka nila.
Everyone has dated someone who had friends or family you didn’t get along with. His mother may have been controlling, his sister was mooched, his brother was a drama king, his father was a flirt and his friends never left. When you’re single, you only deal with people you want in your life. You make it clear who is welcome in your space and who is not. How awesome is that?
5. Marami kang makikilalang iba. Syempre you can mingle with them, make new friends.
When you’re single, you meet the most amazing people, and it’s given me an opportunity to appreciate men on a lot of different levels. We need a balance of feminine and masculine energy in our lives, and when one is missing, we crave it when we don’t have it.
6. Ang pinakabonus, marami kang pera.
People love spending their money the way they want to spend it. If you want to do a spa day, do it. If you want a new outfit, buy it. If you want to blow it all in Vegas, blow it. That’s not to say you’re financially irresponsible, but it’s nice to be able to spend money on curtains, a nice dining room table or a trip, rather than a vibrating man chair.
