I am about to celebrate a birthday. Which one, I will not tell, but I don’t feel any older, other than just another day where I have to remember to change the digit when people ask how old I am. But enough about my birthday!
Birthdays are like your own personal national holiday; the one day a year when you’ve gathered the most important people in your life and they celebrate in your honor, and pretty much let you do whatever you want. With today’s restrictions where family is far away, and friends feel distant it makes you feel damn alone and as single as ever.
So, if you think that spending your birthday single is terrifying, here’s a few reasons exactly why you have to do it.
- You don’t have to stress, it’s the single most selfish day of the year.
- You’re free to stop and appreciate all the little things you come across on your solo adventure.
- And being alone leaves you with no option other than to be brave; it will remind you of how naturally it is to be social (no social media) and talk to more people, socially distanced and you never know who you might meet that will turn your birthday from a status of single to taken.
There is no secret to finding the right partner (we do it everyday). In fact, singles have been eager to get back out there just 6 weeks into lockdown and we have had many relationships bloom despite restrictions, in mindful socially distanced ways. It’s a new chapter you should enter with as much positivity, persistence, patience and clarity as you can.
