Relationships are Tough, period. Sometimes they consume so much of your time and Personality that you leave them feeling even worse than when you got into one.
If you find yourself in such a situation, I have news for you. You might need to be single for a while after this. It’s time to take a break from the dating rat race and experience how to truly be on your own, for some time. So how do you know if you need to stay single for a while? Here are the signs to look out for.
1. You Feel Pressure To Date
There can be a lot of pressure to pair up with society or from your family and friends but that’s not a good reason to be dating.
2. You’re scared of relationships
Fear means you’re not ready for a relationship. That’s just a lot of negative energy that creeps in.
3. You’re scared of being alone
This will make you compromise your standards and made you settle for less than what you deserve.
4. You’re rebounding
Your distraction is not your cure, always remember that.
5. Your baggage feels heavy
The baggage from your previous relationship is still affecting you, you’ll definitely need time alone to reflect and recover.
6. You keep picking the wrong person
If your exes have had the same flaws and toxic behaviours, its time to take a break, honey.
7. If you’re still feeling sensitive to rejection
Gone on a few dates and just ended a relationship you saw so much potential in only to end up disappointed? Then you start guilt tripping yourself and mopping around. You need a break.
Don’t be afraid to take a break and work through any personal issues before you start dating again. When the time comes, you’ll feel much more ready.
