Being in a relationship is a wonderful thing, but you shouldn’t feel obligated to be in one out of fear or social pressure. Many times, women feel like they have to be in a relationship because it’s expected of them, when in reality they really should just be single.

Choosing to be single takes a lot of maturity, which can often lead to taking the necessary time to work on oneself without the distractions that relationships can sometimes bring.

If you’re toying with the idea of being single for awhile, but aren’t sure it’s for you, check out our list of signs to help you make the right choice. Besides, it’s still the start of the year, and that means it’s the perfect time for change!

You’re Afraid Of Being Alone

The fear of being alone is one the main reasons why so many people get into relationships that they really shouldn’t be in at all. Everyone should be alone at least once in their lives without the constant presence of another person.

The initial thought of it may seem scary, but once you step out on faith and outside of your comfort zone, you’ll realize that being alone for a period of time can be the best thing you’ve ever done.
