Loving Your Single Life
Living alone takes courage, a willingness to fly solo, becoming
a DIY person, paying all the bills and laughing even when the
budget gets a little skimpy. Laughing is always better than crying.
And overall you laugh more than cry. You love this life.
Sometimes it may be hard to hide your absolute
glee at living alone when out with married friends
who still want your company, though you are living
solo to their married bliss.
So I am here telling you not to feel guilty for your
happiness at living alone, single-never-married, divorced,
or widowed. It is not your problem if some friendships
have become a bit iffy due to your lifestyle.
How to keep these friendships may take a little
tact and a lot of subterfuge hiding your contentment
with a homelife that has no need for judgments or
schedules. No curfews or excuses for anything.
And no guilt.
The way to live alone and get along with others is
to keep to yourself some of the more pleasurable
facts of single bliss so as not to stir up any
jealousy. A little bit of that goes a long way to
eroding a lingering friendship.
So better to keep quiet on how much you enjoy
being the only boss at home. How you sigh in
relief at no compromises needed to keep the peace.
How the sheer luxury of hogging the bed never
makes you feel guilty.
How you sigh when sending home well loved but
messy grandchildren when a babysitting fun
afternoon is over.
No otherness messing up the bathroom. Eating
whatever whenever you want, even crumbly muffins
in the hogged bed. And leaving books and papers
in stacks piling up everywhere til the urge to purge
This is the lighter and laughable side of living alone
in your own space, your own way. There are more
serious sides to this solitary life but laughing is easier.
And knowing you have a good life that you enjoy will go a
long way to keeping you happy and healthy. I guarantee!
