Being single doesn’t have to be a lonely and dull experience. Instead, use this phase of your life to rediscover the version of yourself you want to be. Here’s how, according to Tracee Ellis Ross
Hands up if you have been or know someone who is in a bad relationship because they fear being single. There is so much sadness and even negativity attached to being single, but did you know that single people are generally more happy, according to Psychology Today? Many celebrities, such as Emma Watson (who coined the term self-partnered), Jennifer Aniston, Mindy Kaling and Charlize Theron are currently reported to be single. There are many reasons people are or choose to be single, but whatever the reason, make the most of it with tips from Tracee Ellis Ross.
The key is to feel whole:
In her recent cover interview for Shape Magazine, Ross said, “People can be in wonderful relationships but can’t actually reap the joy of that connection. Because you can have all the good stuff, but if you don’t know how to be with it, it doesn’t matter. I realize that I hold the idea of wholeness with great reverence and respect because my goal is to have an experience with myself that is whole.”
The American actress, producer and businesswoman affirms that she is happily single but open to being in a relationship. She adds, “In my wonderful and robust experience of being single, I have learned to have a productive relationship with loneliness and an intensely juicy relationship with my joyful solitude — I really enjoy my company. One of the things that’s been lovely to discover is how I care for myself and how I actively love myself. And I believe that love is an action: You get back what you put in.”
