Look, I might not be a qualified mental health professional, but I do know that not giving up on trying to find love is half the battle. As we increase our social life and build new relationships, we often find that we might not have to seek love forever.
If you have ever thought about giving up on having a great relationship, then this article is for you. Dive into the six reasons not giving up on love is good for you.
Is It OK To Give Up On Love?
The short answer for this is no.
But in reality, it depends on your situation.
Past relationships and failed relationships can have a negative effect on how we view our future relationships.
Some of us might use dating apps, or we might not be ready due to a toxic relationship. The most important thing to remember is that we keep positive energy throughout the entire process.
Lessons Are Learned Through Love
We get that going through another failed relationship brings up frustration, depression, and the feeling that there isn’t hope for you. Love is one of those subjects that we can associate with a “failing forward” experience.
The next time you consider a relationship that didn’t work a waste of time, remember everything you learned during this time. Think of all the things you learned that made you stronger or that you will not tolerate in relationships moving forward.
Whatever happened, take those lessons and move those experiences into your new relationship.
It Allows You Time To Grow
Are you finding yourself having more time now that you are single? This is an upside to this part of the “Love Process.”
Use this time to focus on yourself. We know that the end goal is to get married and build your life with your partner. Think of some skills you would love to bring to your next relationship, and might include things like:
- A Stable Career
- Better Cooking Skills
- Owning Your Own Home/Apartment
- Communication And Expressing Your Feelings
- Being More Balanced In Your Life
- Seeking Informed Professional Advice Where Needed
Building these skills is ultimately better than just giving up on love. Explore the things you like in life and dive deep into who you want to be for yourself and your friends.
Spend This Time On You
We all have dreams and ambitions that we are working towards. Pursuing your dreams and focusing your energy on them can be seen as selfish at times. But in reality, striving toward what you want will help you build towards your dream.
When you are ready to take that next step and get back into a relationship, remember that you can still do things you love.
Being single is a great time to focus on your mental health and your personal growth and development.
Don’t Settle. You Deserve More
Real love is found when you choose to stick it out during the hard times. By doing this, you show yourself that you are willing to wait and find that perfect person. Here are a few points about what finding real love is about:
- Master the art of communication
- Focus on spending quality time together
- Share your goals and beliefs
Have you found real love? Then why would you settle? You deserve to have the best relationship possible, so don’t give up on love just yet.
Anything Worth Doing Is Not Easy
We have all heard that the things worth doing are not easy. And this applies to finding love as well. Do the things that give you a sense of accomplishment and pride, and inspire you to be a better person.
Whether this is losing weight, breaking a habit you have had for a long time, getting your degree, or simply not giving up on love, it is always worth doing. The same thing applies to finding that new person for your life.
It takes self-control and discipline to find real love without having a negative view.
You Only Need One
“There is plenty of fish in the sea,” Right?
The reality is that you only need to catch one of them out of all those fish. Just because your last date was awful doesn’t mean it is time to quit.
Now is the time to rise. You could meet “the one” next week at a coffee shop. Or next month on a trip. But to be honest, that only happens if you keep going.
When you find love like that, it makes you happy. You no longer wonder if you have to go through countless relationships to find the perfect one for you.
Why Do We Give Up On Love?
We often find ourselves giving up on love due to stuff that has happened in past relationships. Don’t let that deter you from finding happiness. Putting work into finding who you really are and what you want to accomplish will get you to the step of wanting to build relationships again.
