To counteract this “putting life on hold” tendency, we need to carefully look at our dreams and goals, assess what is possible to create in our lives, and begin to take practical steps right now towards their realization. It also means looking at the positives on our list of pros and cons that we associate with being single and “working them.”
You may come up with an exciting and interesting set of goals if you do this. They might include: creating a “home,” planning trips, organizing your own birthday party, adopting a child, or buying flowers on Valentine’s Day just to feel special. It may mean shifting your role within your family to hosting Thanksgiving dinners rather than always going to your married brother’s home, or going on your own adventure trip during the holidays.
