The single life; one year later

When it comes to talking about myself, I’m very open about some things and very private about others. One aspect of my life that I’ve been reserved about is relationships. But as I’ve been single for a year now, I thought I’d talk a bit about it. How very Carrie Bradshaw of me!

So as I said, I’ve been single for a year now. After eight years of being with someone, it was weird being on my own again. But I’m used to it. As clichéd as it sounds, I feel completely independent and self-reliant.

I’ve never not been independent but when you’re a couple, you do get used to having that extra support. Especially in a long-term relationship. And when that support goes, you’ve got just yourself to rely on. At first, it’s strange but then it becomes the norm.

I’m not really looking for anyone at the moment. I know some people can jump from one relationship to another but I’m not one of them. I don’t need a man to feel complete. I’d rather focus on myself than bring someone new into my life just for the sake of it.

Don’t get me wrong, if I met a guy who was right for me, I wouldn’t turn him away. However, I’m fine on my own for the time being. Of course, when I say on my own, I don’t mean a recluse. It’s obviously nice to have company! I mean that I’d prefer to be alone than rush into a relationship just not to be lonely.

I’m a strong believer in fate so what’s meant to be, will be. Sometimes, the most beneficial thing you can do is not think too much, just breathe and have faith that everything will work out. You don’t always know how but it will. Here’s to the rest of the journey!
