Not 100% happy being single? Feel alone that you enjoy being single? Listen to these bad ass babes slaying it with their outlooks on single life. These celebrity’s points of view on single life are inspiring. After reading them you will be emboldened to step up your game on living single! With society being love/relationship obsessed, it is quite refreshing to see these strong, amazing, successful women share why they love being single.
“Guys need attention. They need that nourishment, that little stroke of the ego that gets them by every now and then. I’ll give it to my family, I’ll give it to my work — but I will not give it to a man right now.” Preach Rihanna!
“Without single women and their impressive sense of self, we’d be without Queen Elizabeth I, Marie-Sophie Germain, Susan B. Anthony, Florence Nightingale, Jane Austen, Harper Lee, Diane Keaton, Greta Garbo, Jane Goodall and me, myself and I,” Chelsea Handler wrote in an excellent article for Time. “Being single is delightfully more than it’s cracked up to be… if you can stand the horror of your own company, that is.” Learning to love your own company is one of the best things you can do for yourself.
“The man for me is the cherry on the pie. But I’m the pie and my pie is good all by itself. Even if I don’t have a cherry.” Hell yes! This is one of my favorites.
“I remember when I was young I honestly believed in some ridiculous way that you would find someone who would be the person you lived with until you died,”. “I don’t think that because I’m not married it’s made my life any less. That old maid myth is garbage.” Yes!!
Mindy Kaling told Good Housekeeping “I don’t need marriage,” in 2015. “I don’t need anyone to take care of all my needs and desires. I can take care of them myself now.” One of the greatest lessons women should learn.
“Being alone is not the same as being lonely. I like to do things that glorify being alone,” “I buy a candle that smells pretty, turn down the lights and make a playlist of low-key songs. If you don’t act like you’ve been hit by the plague when you’re alone on a Friday night, and just see it as a chance to have fun by yourself, it’s not a bad day.” I have felt more alone in certain relationships than I have ever felt being single.
“I had the full princess fantasy: the white horse, the whole being saved from my life, which is ridiculous. What do I want to be saved from? My life’s great! But it’s just this weird thing that’s been hammered into my head culturally: that’s the only way to succeed, that’s the only thing that counts for a woman. I’m happy, but the fact that I’m not married and don’t have kids— it’s taken me a long time to get to a place where I actually am OK with that, where I actually don’t feel like I’m some sort of loser.” You rock Rashida! I felt so uncomfortable being single and not having kids for so long. Now I am confident in myself and my life!
“We are complete with or without a mate, with or without a child. We get to decide for ourselves what is beautiful when it comes to our bodies. That decision is ours and ours alone,” Absolutely! Women are made to feel incomplete without a significant other and that is ridiculous. You are always enough!
“Most women would not be happy being me,” “People say, ‘But you’re alone.’ But I don’t feel alone. I feel very un-alone. I feel very sparkly and excited about everything. I know women who are going, like, ‘I don’t want to grow old alone.’ And I’m like, ‘See, that doesn’t scare me.’ Because I’ll never be alone. I’ll always be surrounded by people. I’m like the crystal ball and these are all the rings of Saturn around me… My generation fought very hard for feminism, and we fought very hard to not be labeled as you had to have a husband or you had to be in a relationship, or you were somehow not a cool chick.” I don’t know about you, but I know that I will never be alone because of the amazing people in my life! Therefore, surround yourself with amazing friends and family and you will never be alone.
“It sounds like a cliché but I also learnt that you’re not going to fall for the right person until you really love yourself and feel good about how you are,” I 100% agree with this! How can you except to have a great relationship with someone if you don’t have a great relationship with yourself.
“I don’t think you can really, truly be the partner you want to be until you know on an absolute level that you are a complete person on your own. I think that’s something all women deserve to know,” Right on Sophia !
“People keep asking me who I’m dating right now and the truth is…wait for it…no one. And that’s OK. I’m figuring out a lot of stuff right now. I think as a woman it’s in our nature to nurture someone else. Sometimes at the expense of ourselves.” Which one of us hasn’t taken care of others at the expense of ourselves? Well, it’s time we make ourselves a priority!
“Some people said, “Oh. You don’t want to be alone.” And I said, “I’m not alone! I’m with myself. And myself is fabulous.”’ Yes you are!
“Too many women throw themselves into romance because they’re afraid of being single, then start making compromises and losing their identity. I won’t do that,” Being single has allowed me to realize my worth. This isn’t why I will never compromise myself again!
These bad ass babes are sharing wisdom some of us spend our entire lives searching for. I wish I had women like this sharing their outlook on single life much earlier in life. Lastly, when you are doubting your single life, remember the oldest woman alive attributes her long life to staying away from men. Maybe these les sho be tau to women at a youn age!
Until next time…
