Hey all you single girls! Have you ever let being single hold you back from having fun? It’s a shame and I hate to admit it, but I used to let it hold me back sometimes.
Sometimes I think it was because I was scared to be single. Truly being on your own for the first time can be really scary, and until I went through my divorce, I hadn’t really done it.
I went from living with my parents to living in a dorm with three roommates to living with my husband. It wasn’t until after my divorce that I truly got a chance to spend any real time alone with myself and get to know who I am as a person.
Part of it is probably because I’m a social butterfly. I’m definitely an extrovert and I rarely spent any time alone before I got divorced and started living by myself.
After living on my own for several years now, I can truly say that this is the best thing I’ve done to get to know myself and develop as a person. I got a chance to listen to my inner self and learn what I like, what I don’t like, and more.
That said, I still know that it can be scary to go out and do things on your own. But since my friends and family are busy people with their own lives that don’t revolve only around me (the shock and horror!), I’ve had to find things I can do on my own.
This is why I’ve come up with a whole list of ideas for cheap summer activities for the single girl!
