Happiness should never be completely dependent upon another person, happiness should depend upon ourselves. It is an empowering feeling, knowing that you can get through life without being dependent on others.

12. Enjoy your freedom. When you are single, you have the freedom to do whatever you want, you are free to be spontaneous without the consideration of significant other. It is still a blessing to have your own time for yourself, although having someone to share your experience with is a joy. Instead of complaining about your relationship status, why not just enjoy your freedom while you are still single?

13. Start a new hobby. While you are free of the responsibilities of a relationship, try to start a new hobby. Add something that will inspire you to enrich your life. If you have something you’ve always wanted to do, now is the perfect time to do it. Choose to do something different that will surely challenge you.

Learn how to be contented and appreciate life, always keep in mind that if you are awake you are blessed because life is a priceless gift. So, appreciate every minute of it. Complaining about your relationship status has nothing to do with your life, and you’re just stressing yourself out if you do that. Remember you don’t always get a second chance of it.

15. Recognize the importance of perfect timing. Timing is everything, most especially in a relationship. The time has indeed a wonderful way of showing us what really matters. Instead of being lonely about your relationship status, why not just remind yourself that there is a perfect time for everything.
