So you’ve gone through a breakup or maybe have had a falling out with some friends, in any event, you need some time to heal. Many times we end up wrapped up in relationships that force us to lose our identities. We become this person’s girlfriend or bestfriend, and we do things together as a team or clique. Rarely, in many close relationships, do people take a step back and just take some time for themselves. It’s easier to go with the crowd than be that ‘weirdo’ that’s flying solo, so to speak. So how do you pick yourself up and start figuring out who you are and what makes you happy outside the relationships that you had? You date yourself!
Dating yourself especially after a breakup or rupture in a close friendship is quite an emotionally arduous task. Realizing that you need to find yourself, as corny as it may seem, is crucial. In today’s post, we provide some questions that illustrate how you can start dating yourself. The following questions are just a starting point. Think of them as a beginner’s guide to self discovery. Many times we are so wrapped up in the crowd that we forget that we are individuals first. These questions should help you get back to you center. Hopefully, they help you get back to … you.
Ok, so what if you are still in need of a push? Start by figuring out why being alone is an issue for you. Maybe talking to a confidant or even a counselor might do. I urge you to be fearless. There is nothing worse than holding yourself back and not surprising yourself with how powerful and brave you are!
It’s not easy to get back out there initially, but you do have to get back out there! Dating yourself should never end. You should always take some time to figure out what makes you tick.
