There’s a lot of pressure on single people in our society. Even now, in 2021, being single by a certain age is considered out of the norm and is often stigmatized. Pressure from family and friends to find a partner and settle down can take an emotional toll.
It’s important to remember that your relationship status doesn’t define you. Your being single doesn’t mean anything other than you haven’t found the right person yet. It’s also essential to remember that there is nothing wrong with being single by choice. Many people are single by choice and lead productive and fulfilling lives.
Unfortunately, the pressures associated with being single can be overwhelming for some, especially around couple-centric holidays such as Valentine’s Day, and can ultimately lead to depression. Finding strategies to preserve your mental health and wellness is crucial if you’re feeling overwhelmed.
