You don’t have to meet anyone’s expectations
One of the most tiring and stressful things is trying to be your best self 24/7, all the while dealing with the expectations of the person you love as well. Well, no more of that stuff! You now can dress up only when you feel like it and do everything according to your boundaries and comfort zone only.
You don’t care what others say
Staying single for a long time makes you independent and you realize that it doesn’t really matter what others say about you as long as you are happy with what you do and where you are. You are your own harshest judge, which means you no longer need to look at others for approval as you now understand that your own approval is what matters most.
