Taking time off to solely focus on you, your desires and happiness is sometimes the best thing that you can do for yourself and for others around you.
Sometimes it’s quite tough to remember that you are the best thing that’s happened to you in a while. Let’s be real. Sometimes we forget our worth so much that we try to find someone else to source all our love and care. We get so entangled in our relationships, situation-ships, hookups, etc. and we forget that regardless, we’re the best thing that’s ever going to happen to us, hence we better love and treat ourselves right. It’s not only refreshing but necessary to take that in from time to time. Nothing is more powerful than receiving and demanding love from yourself in a way you try to keep giving everybody else.1. Because you will have no excess stress.
How amazing right? No worrying about if or when you should send a text, (even though we shouldn’t be so preoccupied with these things anyway), no silly fights, no one to answer to. Being involved with someone in any way, shape, or form takes up a bit of mental space. If you decide to take a breather from this altogether, you allow yourself for some much-needed mental clarity.2. You learn more about you.
If the only thing you have to focus on is you, how can you NOT learn about yourself? Don’t get me wrong, you should still learn about yourself in a relationship. Although, this type of complete solitude just brings about a different sense of self-awareness and self-discovery.3. Your only priorities will be you, your family, and your friends.
Learn something new about yourself. Take up a new hobby. Find your life passion if you haven’t yet. Hang out with a family member you wouldn’t usually spend time with. Travel somewhere you’ve always wanted to go. Make a fancy dinner and drink nice wine by yourself. Go out with your friends Friday AND Saturday. Most of all, create good memories!4. Because you’re making room for the best situations to unfold.
The main reason to do this is for yourself. But this can be beneficial for that special relationship you hope to have one day. Maybe you don’t want it right now, but one day. So, preserve yourself for becoming a whole first before jumping on a conquest to find your better half in life.
