Are you happy being single?
Shovan Chowdhury, Self-regulated, life-long learner in psychology
YES and NO. I am happy being single because
I enjoy the loneliness and can travel to different places in Bangladesh.
I can do whatever I want; I am free to do anything.
I run, meditate, eat, pray, read and help people.
I am not accountable to anyone. I enjoy a carefree life.
I can save enormous amounts of time and declutter all my problems.
I don’t need to share my bed with anyone.
Nobody can give missed calls at midnight. So, I always have sound sleep.
I live my life with my own rules.
I can spend more time to develop myself.
I am emotionally strong and I avoid relationships consciously.
I don’t need to impress someone; the only person I try to impress is myself.
I always stay peace of mind because I lead a very simple and single life.
I don’t need to check facebook messenger or whatsapp continuously to see whether she has sent any messages or not.
I can spend more time on creativity.
I can chase my passion without any problem.
But after running miles after miles and I have not breath left, I start to miss someone. When I am rejected by employers, I feel the need for someone to console me. When I walk among the thousands of people in the busy street, I feel the need to walk with someone. At the end of busy working day I return from office. I am exhausted, tired then make a cup of coffee and sit in the balcony. I feel the need to find someone.
But there’s nobody there but me.
