The Time I Spend Alone

Lately, the idea of finding soulmates have become a recurring topic among my friends and family.

It’s crazy how we could start off talking about spaceship and ended up conversing about love and how we had turned from the naive 16 year-olds who thought getting married early was the best thing, to the skeptical 20 year-olds who doubts the importance of marriage and the existence of ‘prince charming’ in real life.

But honestly, I’m not sure if it’s because I still have several years to find my Mr. Right before my family starts making a big deal out of it or if it’s because I have lost part of my faith in the conservative idea of union, but I felt that I’m not too worried at the moment about all those things. To be fair, I do feel lonely at times, wanting someone to bring me ice cream in the middle of the night when I feel like it. But that’s only an occasional thing and not a constant feeling.

Moreover, after looking at how some of my non-single friends lead their lives with their partners, my mind started to form this understanding that maybe it is a good thing that I have several extra years of being single to get to know myself a little more.

Anyway, since I have always been interested in the study about personalities and character from when I was in Elementary School, I feel like this time that I could spend alone is perfect for me to test out the things I have discovered about myself throughout the years. About my dislikes and likes, my tendencies and strength, all of the things I have taken for granted in the past. Well, maybe I haven’t. Nonetheless, it’s different now that I have matured (a little bit) and lived away from my root for quite some time.

Here are some of the tests that had somehow affected my judgement ever since I did them, and I hope that maybe you could try doing them if you’re interested:

  1. 16 Personalities Test
  2. Love Language
  3. Character Strength
  4. Pottermore (hahaha. 🙂 its fun!)

In conclusion, I just want to share these tools to you guys to help you understand yourself a little more regardless of your relationship status. Being single is not a bad thing. maybe we’re just given an extra time to know ourselves a little more before spending the rest of our life with someone.

Cheers! 🙂
