"What is the best thing about being either single or partnered (which ever you are right now?)
Hmmmm.... I think there are positives and negatives about being single AND being in a relationship.
I am just going to touch on being single... but since the post is specific to what I am in right now, I will mostly be speaking to that!
I think being single is a beautiful time in life. It gives you the opportunity to be still, be alone, make your own decisions ons not based off of anyone else’s needs or wants. You can learn about who you are and what your needs are from a relationship. You can work on your past traumas and prune yourself for your next relationship so that you are the best partner that you can be to someone. I could go on about this, but I really encourage you to not panic with the thought of being alone, and truly see what that season has for you and how it could help prepare you for your future!
Now for what applies to me in my life. I am in a relationship of 5 years now. The best thing about being in a relationship, to me, is having a life partner. Someone that is there for you no matter what, at the end of every day. Someone that will not judge you, love you, and be there for you no matter how ugly or stinky you or the situation may be.
Sure! It's fun to start a fresh relationship, to be in that exciting part and experience the "newness" or "honeymoon phase" but there is nothing better than having that one person that you can come home to and be completely raw and authentic with. Having someone that wants to help you and accomplish and work through life together with you is priceless.
I'd have to say those are the best parts about being either single, or in a relationship, for me personally.
We want to hear from you! Please share your thoughts, and what you favor out of the current season you are in!?
