Unlike Valentines Day, this day is completely underrated and less celebrated. And some people mark it as their sad day, which is unnecessary for sure. If being single is remarked as low-level relationship status, then yeah, it must be noted that every single person starts their journey as a Single in their romantic love life. This is a fact, people should consider and act upon it. There was no hope in celebrating this day because previously people used to think, coming out as a single and enjoying it might make them feel socially degrading and people might shower them pity, especially after crossing teenage. It is so untrue. And gradually, people proved it wrong because now the Single-hood is celebrated under terms like freedom, break, self-focused and even self loved too. Isn't it progressive?
This is one of the factors which every millennial should be proud of, to consider their "Single" relationship status exactly like the "Committed". Being single is what people prefer more nowadays because being committed needs a hell lot of pressure to be handled. This doesn't mean every person must end up as single. This means every person who is not ready to handle such pressures must take some time, breathe and get into any kind of relationship. Being single doesn't mean a person is irresponsible, it means a person should single-handedly take all the responsibilities. You know that's a tough task. Having no person to deal with your emotional, physical, financial and mental stress is hard, but if you can handle yourself properly and gracefully, yes, you are good at being single and you must celebrate it.
People who are failures at love and not committed in a romantic relationship, should not be the only ones who must celebrate the day. Indeed, "Singles Day" is all about celebrating the singleness in you. The courage, the brave, the capacity of leading an individual and independent life, the openness to love, capabilities of holding oneself in utmost pressures and deviations, every minute thing comes under being a single person. All the single mothers, the single fathers and the single lovers (one side love), the single travelers, the people who hate to be partnered, the people who are on a break from these materialistic and bodily pleasures, the people who are just out of a failed romantic relationship, everyone should celebrate this day, not with loneliness and tears, but with happiness and a cheerful smile.
You don't have to attend a bash or throw a bash for being single, you don't have to blow some candle or burst some balloons, you don't have to clink a glass of champagne or eat a handful of pastry, you don't have to scream out loud or announce officially, just pull yourself together, breathe in and be proud of what you are having right now, what you are doing right now and what you are capable of. Simple. Being single means being less complicated. So, do not get behind the unnecessary complications and let the loneliness ruin your moments. Let it sit with you and in return give it the best company, you will feel better than before.
Single-hood has a power of healing, constructing a personality, realizing situations, analyzing people, scrutinizing things around you, develop your inner and outer appearances, make you fit and happy and especially it always keeps you open to love. Yes, that's what being single is all about. People think all the single is out of the reach for love, but indeed singles are the ones who can feel loved every single moment and from every person, they come across without any restrictions and complications. It helps a person to filter the right person to get mingled with. For a person who steps in his/her first romantic relationship, it gives excitement and also pains at the end when that person is out of it. But at the same time, it also teaches the person a good lesson and makes sure that a person follows it till he/she meets his soulmate. Till then, the single-hood never give up on a person, it tries and tries and tries, till that person gets into someone whom he/she deserves to be with. And for some, single-hood itself becomes a partner with them and stay with them forever.
Now, don't you feel to give a tribute to the single-hood by celebrating your "being single" status? Don't you think it deserves a thought of appreciation? So, if you are struggling, suffering, sad, happy, joyful, caring, protecting, loving, irritating, confusing, frustrating, annoying, whatever kind of single you are, raise a glass and say it yourself, a Happy Singles Day and also wish all the single people around you. Single mothers and Single fathers, deserve to be complimented for the efforts they make every day to bring a smile on a kid's face. That's something exceptional and out of the world.
And last but not least, being single is not being rigid and restricted to yourself and others, it is fluid and you must go with the flow of life and take whatever life gives you. No matter, they stay or not, you will be always with you and you can always celebrate being SINGLE.
Happy Singles' day !!
