You need to be happy with being alone

Posted by

Can you just hang out with yourself, laugh and be happy? Just try it. If you’re not happy being alone you’ll never be happy when you’re in a relationship. I wasn’t happy in the beginning of college I remember. I did not know what I wanted to do with my life and I thought that getting a girlfriend would solve all my problems and make me happy. Well, I got into a relationship and it was great at first, but at about the year mark I realized I wasn’t truly happy inside. I was bottling everything up and acting out in anger towards others because I did not know how to communicate effectively. That relationship eventually ended. I was very thankful for that experience. I met my next serious girlfriend months later.

Again, not really doing any inner work with myself, I fell into the same rut of being unhappy at about a year into the relationship. Well that ended, and here I am today and can finally say I really enjoy being by myself and am truly happy with being by myself, and am okay with being single. I have dated a few women since my last relationship, but nothing serious yet. I realized that I needed to be alone in order to find out what I really wanted in another person and what I want out of life.

You’ll know when you are happy being alone. It’s a feeling inside that I can’t describe. You’ll soon realize that you don’t need another person to complete your life, you should be already completed when you meet a woman you want to get into a relationship with. A woman should complement your life, not complete it.
