Have you ever heard of the expression, “I’m single and ready to mingle”? It’s quite popular and often used to lure recent breakup victims to get back in the dating game as a way of moving on.
But what if you’re not quite ready to move on? Rather than to catch a sudden rebound, it may be wiser to simply stay single and focus on yourself.
While this may be the best move for you, staying single to focus what’s good for you is difficult when you may be easily distracted by thinking of other people a little too often.
Is it necessary to get totally isolated with yourself in order to get back in tune with yourself after a breakup?
I share my thoughts in this episode! Click below to watch and enjoy!
I remember when I was getting over a breakup one time and all I wanted to do was mope around my house, doing nothing but wallow in what had just happened to me.
I wanted to cry and wear sweatpants, and cry, and eat ice cream, and cry some more.
But my friends weren’t having it!
They insisted that I go out! They downright forced me to go out and mingle.
I wasn’t having it. So, not only was I a terrible third wheel, but I gave off a super bad impression to everyone I encountered that night.
I wasn’t ready to deal with the emotional damage and baggage that I had just packed.
And by thinking that you’re ready to mingle when you’re honestly not can be more detrimental than you think.
So what does it mean for you to have some “me” time?
What did you do during your season of “single” that helped you stay away from the “mingle”?
