When You're Legit Better Off Alone

Diply 24 Jan 2018

Can we all just agree that depending on a man is so dated and overrated? That being single and sad is a stereotype we are so over? Like, it's 2018, what would we even be sad about? Being able to live an independent, carefree life that revolves around us and what we want rather than the needs of a man? Sounds great to me.

Being independent is such an incredible thing...especially in your twenties. Like honestly, you do you, so you can keep the marriage and have a child or two, but I'm going to be selfish in all aspects, at least for the time being: further my career by pouring everything I have into it, pursue my passions and hobbies, and live my best life totally guilt-free. This means doing what I want when I want.

For me, and basically every single girl I know, it's so much better to be alone (even if just for a while). #DoYou

I felt like I had an out-of-body experience once I realized this. Stop seeking validating from others, cease the never-ending manhunt, and do you instead.

I would rather work multiple gigs at a time, with little-to-no sleep knowing that I am independent and worked for what I have, rather than having a man give it to me and then hold it over my head.

Well if this is what qualifies as being the smartest woman, how come I didn't get a full ride to a prestigious school? I never even had to learn this lesson, I was born knowing I didn't need to depend on anyone for anything — especially a man.

Boi, I have no doubt that you needed me but that sure doesn't mean that I ever needed you.

Who even believes that they need a man to complete them? That until they meet "the one" they are an incomplete fragment of a person? Girllll, you need to learn and be better than that. None of us are halves.

I plan on living a fulfilled, flawless, and fabulous life all while being single and totes loving it.

Relatable AF because I refuse to ever depend on a man (or anyone else for that matter) for anything in this world. Goals? Shoes? Rent? Whatever it is that I want in this world, I want to get it all on my own.
