Being single doesn't have to be a bad thing. It is actually a blessing. I say this because while single, you can really work on yourself and your well being. I remember, while in a relationship I worked on a couple of the essential things of life that I am going to go over below. I never worked on or developed them all at once. Now that I am single, I am able to focus on all 5. Granted, I fall short more times than I want too, but while in a relationship I was very much distracted and of course an emotional wreck.
