How to Be Confident While Single


For some, being single can be a depressing situation, especially if you are getting out of a long term relationship. You watch as all of your friends experience marital bliss, and all you long for is to have that for yourself someday. The constant stream of vacation photos, the dinners and photos of happy couples on social media brings about sadness, and the question as to why your own marriage or relationship failed may weigh heavily upon your heart as you experience this people watching of happy couples. It can be very easy to get sucked into a state of depression when you are a single person, it happens to the best of us. Today, however, we want to guide you towards a new state of mind, one which will leave you feeling confident while single, rather than sulking in the what if's and melancholy.


Rediscover Yourself
There’s nothing better that rediscovering yourself when you find yourself living the single lifestyle. Whether you were in a marriage for years or in a relationship for a few months; it’s time to move on and rediscover who you are as a single person. You are older now, wiser and still full of youth, and it's your turn to experience the world through a whole new set of eyes. Take advantage of this time as a means to rediscover who you are deep within your soul. You may be surprised at what you find.


Find Your Calling
We all have a calling, something that truly inspires us to be a better, stronger person. Determine what your calling is and hang onto it. Having something to focus on that leaves you setting goals and reaching them will boost your confidence as a single person. Everyone’s calling is different, this could be a focus on career change, lifestyle change or even just doing something you are extremely passionate about.

Get Healthier
The number one way to be confident when single is to start eating healthier and adding a daily exercise routine into your life. Start by making better food choices and try to take a brisk half an hour walk each day. If anything, these tasks will assist in redirecting your sadness into happiness. Once you start getting healthier, your mind will start being healthier which will in turn make you a happy single person.


Avoid Finding Someone New
Give yourself time to be single, to bask in the glow of independence. A lot of people think that they need to have a soul mate in order to be happy, but you need to learn how to stand on your own two feet again without a partner being there to steady you. The key to being confident when single is to start living for the person you are and let go of pleasing others. Once you master the skill of being alone, a new person will come along when the time is right.

Being single can be a time of joy instead of depression, you just have to be in tune with yourself and focus on the positives and less on the negatives.

  1. I have been married way to long to know anything about single life any more. I wouldn't know where to start if I had to do it all over again.
    I been married for 10 years. I would think avoiding someone new right away would be a big thing to do because someone new so fast might be looked at as a rebound person.

    1. That's very true. I've been married for 11 years myself and finding someone new right away would almost always be a rebound. It's why taking some time to find yourself is best.

  2. I can't even remember being single.. but I remember thinking I had to be ok single, in order to be ok married. It's not a perfect process but I knew I was marrying purely for love and not to fill a gap. That was big for me!

    1. When you marry for love and nothing else that's the real deal right there. You do have to be ok with yourself before you can be ok with a partner.

  3. I think these are great points. You do have to learn to be happy by yourself. It's nice being able to focus on your health and your passions too.

    1. Yes you have to be able to find yourself, what you love to do and work on your health before you can start focusing on another person and a relationship.

  4. This is a great post. I have been married 21 years and I wouldn't even know how to start dating again. I don't think I would be in any rush.

    1. That's a very long time and when you've been in a long relationship, you don't want to rush into another. You want to take your time before getting into a relationship with another person.

  5. These are great pointers!!! You really do have to love yourself before you can love anyone else. I'm always telling my single friends to take their time!

    1. Oh you should most certainly take your time. Don't ever rush into a relationship. I'm always amused at those who fall in love right away and the person they love is their "soulmate" after only a week.

  6. It's good to want to be confident while single! I don't even remember what it's like to be single anymore. My SO and I have been together for so long.

    1. It's been a very long time for me too. My husband and I have been together for a very long time but I do know that even if you're married, you should still be confident about what you want.

  7. I very much agree that, being single could be a depressing situation for many as I have gone through such experience before. Finding ways to get healthier & making sure you have a positive mindset will help you stay confident anytime.
