Why Being Single May Be Better Than Being in a Relationship

Society has a lot of stereotypes and prejudices about love. As a result people often feel pressured to stay in a relationship, even if they aren’t satisfied with it, and feel guilty for being single. But don’t forget that you can be alone but not lonely. Being in a committed relationship with yourself actually has many benefits.


We at TRIG are sure that one of the most important relationships you will ever have is with yourself, and sometimes loneliness is the best option.

1. We are often guilty of singlism.



Research showed that people evaluate single men and women more negatively. It is so common that there’s even a word for it: singlism. Single people face different types of discrimination, and it’s considered legitimate and unproblematic. So the next time someone asks when you’ll find your partner, they are actually invading your privacy.


2. It’s better to learn to be kind to yourself first.




No matter how hard you try, if you don’t love yourself you can’t build a healthy relationship. It’s not a surprise that scientists warn us that self-compassionate partners are more satisfied with their relationships. Self-compassion means that you’re kind and caring toward yourself. On the contrary, people who are in conflict with themselves tend to be controlling, dominating, and judgmental.

3. You can develop more as an individual.




Think about all the time that single people have for themselves. They can try different hobbies, achieve their wildest dreams, or pursue their careers. Don’t believe it? While it’s evident that married men earn more than single men. Single women are 2 times more likely to own a home, than single men.

4. Singles actually have super strong relationships.




There’s a stereotype that single people suffer from loneliness, but this has been proven wrong. The fact that you aren’t in a relationship with anyone means that you are more likely to have stronger bonds with your family and friends. Single people are more likely to socialize, and offer and receive help from family and other people.

5. Chasing love can make your life miserable.




This constant urge makes us embark on a chase to find a significant other. Unfortunately, sometimes that means lowering expectations or giving up important qualities in a possible partner. Love can be addictive, and we may end up leaping from “heart to heart” in a desperate search for a soul mate.

6. Being single will make you healthier and fitter.

An additional bonus for being solo and sassy is the fact that you are likely to be healthier. For example, singles are more likely to have a healthier BMI index, which leads to a lower risk of cardiovascular diseases and fewer chronic conditions.

Bonus: It’s great if your life is already full of love, and you’re ready to love yourself and your partner too.

Check Out The Most Isolated And Dangerous Tribe Who Live Without Technology

If you consider yourself fortunate to have been born in the twenty-first century, surrounded by contemporary technology and devices, you should be aware that our globe is also full with individuals who are still oblivious of all of these innovations and comforts. These are men and women born into ancient tribes who have no concept what life is like outside of the jungle, island, or mountain in which they dwell. They have no notion what lies outside the island, and the outside world has no idea how they live, what language they speak, or what they name themselves since no one has been able to discover a way into the island to film a documentary. North Sentinel Island is part of the Andaman Islands, a Bay of Bengal archipelago that also contains South Sentinel Island. It is home to the Sentinelese, an indigenous tribe who have guarded their protected seclusion from the outside world, often by force.

Mahama's Son Storms Accra Sports Stadium To Support His Team; Ghanaians Massively React

Sharaf Mahama, the son of former President John Dramani Mahama, has demonstrated that one does not have to be a politician simply because his father or relative is a politician. Sharaf Mahama is now a member of the Top Scout Football Academy, and he has scored several goals for his side as a result of his abilities. Yesterday, he was sighted at the Accra Sports Stadium, when Accra Hearts of Oak faced Wydad AC as part of the CAF Champions League matches. This was the opening leg, and Accra Hearts of Oak defeated Wydad FC. When the photographs were released online, Ghanaians responded violently. Some Ghanaians urged the page that shared the image to refrain from politicizing things.

Other Ghanaians urged Sharaf to support Mahama's "Do or Die" campaign.
