On being single

June 08, 2013

I don't know about you but in my Facebook feed within the past couple of weeks, there have been quite a number of posts enumerating the Pros of being single. 1. Marami atang single 2. Many need affirmation as to why they're single 

This is my 8th month being single. Not that I'm counting. It's more like a "Congrats self, you've outlasted your quarter-life crisis!" proof.

Life has been a roller coaster ride. I had dreams and goals that were taken away just like that. (sorry napaka-cliché haha!) But for quite some time, things have started to look up. I have risen and have slowly been picking the pieces together.
Within this year, I have had many opportunities to commit. I just couldn't say 'I love you' back. And yes, it has been awkward EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. As much as I like being in a relationship, having a partner you can constantly rely on, talk to, have sex cuddle with (LOL yes) I must say I'm enjoying this life that I currently have. I have done so many things I've only hoped to try, met new friends, rekindled with old friends, take on more responsibilities, take a look at my career, do spontaneous decisions, party (napaka-profound!) et al.

I will admit that this lifestyle has been exhausting. Fun and amazing, yet exhausting. I will eventually get tired of this life. For sure. I just know it. But for now, I'll make myself happy by loving myself first. For now, I'm choosing to be selfish.
