Being Single

I've been single for most of my life
But I learnt to appreciate being single only recently.
The grass is always greener on the other side they say
But now I'm convinced the grass is greener on my side.

I live for myself, I do what I want.
I am happy no matter what happens
Because I take full responsibility for my life
There is no one to blame.

I feel no need to seek approval
Or validation from someone outside of me.
I don't have to seek permission
To do things that make me happy.

I feel beautiful because I'm me,
I'm not afraid to be me.
I don't have to conform to another person's standards
Nor aspire to match their expectations.
I have my goals and my dreams
And I trust myself to accomplish them.

I don't feel taken for granted,
My feelings, opinions and actions
Are not controlled by someone else.
I'm not afraid of anyone,
I do not have to worry about mind games.

My life is mine own to build or destroy
And I have chosen to create a beautiful masterpiece.
Please let me be single,
Please let me be me.
