6. You discover what you really want to get done in this life.
When you’re alone, you get the ultimate opportunity to really devote yourself to your own self-discovery. You will be forced to really think about what kind of mark you are making in this world and what kind of legacy you are looking to leave behind. You will become incredibly focused on how you are conducting yourself in this life and whether you should be doing anything more.
7. You discover your stance on family planning and parenthood.
When you’re single and you don’t really have a relationship or a partner to think about, you start to think about other aspects of life. For instance, you might think about your career, your hobbies… and sometimes, you might even come to think about what your future family is going to look like. And the more that you think about it, the more you will find out about what it is you’re looking for when it comes to establishing a family of your own in the long run.
8. You discover just how tolerant you can be for toxic people.
It’s either your tolerance for toxic people can increase or decrease; but either way, when you’ve been single for a long time, you do a better job at managing toxic people. It’s either you get so used to them that you no longer let their toxicity affect you negatively anymore. Or you just become a better judge of toxic people and you deliberately disassociate yourself from them automatically.
9. You discover how strong of a human being you are after all.
It’s through adversity where we really become strong as individuals. Nothing forces us to confront what we’re made of more than being thrust into a compromising predicament – especially when it’s one that you have to face on your own. But the thing about being single for so long is that you really learn just what kind of person you’re made of; and when that happens, the problems of the future won’t faze or rattle you as much anymore.
