“There is no person like yourself. Start loving yourself first.
You must want to spend the rest of your life with yourself”
When there was no internet back in the time, it must have been really hard for people to meet new people because talking to someone from outside of your area meant going on a long-distance trip.
But not in today’s world. Everyone is connected through all social media platforms and video-calling. You can meet new people through various apps to stay connected for as long as you can.
The habit of staying surrounded by people, makes us forget how to be alone by ourselves. It results in us questioning ourselves and judging our self-worth.
But when someone starts enjoying his/her own company, we start believing that alone is better.
Don’t worry, we have come up with a list of things you can do when you are just by yourself and feel happy about yourself.
1. Stop relationship hopping
Stop jumping from one relationship to another just for the sake of being in a relationship and because all your friends are in one. Take responsibility for yourself and do not use another person as a solution to your problems. Not being in a relationship doesn’t mean you are insufficient. So, don’t let that fear overcome you!
2. Work on your self
The only one who is going to be with you through thick and thin is going to be you. So, if you don’t start loving yourself, it will be a very difficult time for you.
It all comes down to how you treat yourself and how you allow people to love to treat yourself.
Be your own best friend- start taking care of your mental health, see yourself as a beautiful, kind and loving human being.
3. Do the things you always wanted to do
The heading speaks for itself. Do various activities that you would do with the people around you. This can be as simple as going to the movies alone, going for dinner, getting your nails done. The amount of peace you will get, you will not even imagine.
4. Try New Things
Go out there, challenge yourself! Try new books, take unusual hobbies, visit unexplored places. Do something out of the blue if you don’t like going to the gym, running, biking, rock climbing, doing something that makes you happy like gardening, go on a hike.
Start doing new things, don’t let the idea of failure hold you back.
5. Chase your Dreams
We all have our dreams which we wish to complete someday. So, start doing it! Don’t just sit in one corner and pray for it to happen. You have to work for it so that you can achieve it. Make a bucket list and put your hand to work, because if you do it, you will be the first one to be happy!
All that is left to say is that you are important and it's okay not to be okay sometimes, it is important that you work on it and get your desired result!
