Better Off Alone Than Together?
Many couples choose to stay together during the holidays, but they shouldn’t. Perhaps they stay together because they don’t want to be hassled by friends and family or they don’t want to be labeled a failure or unlovable. But choosing to stay in an unhealthy, unfulfilling relationship harms your health, happiness and true potential. Maybe it’s time to give yourself the gift of being single and break up with them this holiday season. Here are seven reasons why.

Regret is Worse Than Loneliness
If you fear loneliness, what you really fear is the unknown. You don’t know when (or if) you’ll meet someone new, so you choose to stay in a bad relationship. But there are numerous romantic opportunities out there for you, and you’ll regret not taking advantage of them if you fear loneliness.
You’ll Find Your Strength
The best way to conquer your fear is to face it. If you fear being single, you won’t choose to be, even if it is better for you in the long run. But, you could find interesting and fun ways to spend your single time. Whether it’s taking a class, getting in shape, or reconnecting with friends and loved ones, the single you has the potential to be better and stronger than ever before.
You’ll Control Your Happiness
People in relationships often rely on their partners to make them happy. But if you’re single, you control your own happiness. You don’t need acceptance and permission from another person. Being single means being free. Start living for you!
You’ll Enjoy Less Drama and Chaos
If the only way you could have a “good” relationship was to sweep your problems under the rug and avoid conflict, you lived a life filled with drama and chaos. That’s not the case when you’re single. Ride the calmer waters of singledom!
You’ll Learn How to Love Yourself
Leaving a bad relationship means that you love and respect yourself. And once single, you’ll continue to love and respect yourself by treating yourself better than a bad partner ever could.
You’ll Have Time On Your Side Again
If you think life moves quickly when you’re having fun, then it moves really slow when you’re in a bad relationship. Time is one of life’s most precious gifts, and that’s because it runs out. Don’t give your time to someone who doesn’t deserve it.
You’ll Be Healthier
Bad relationships are bad for your physical, mental and emotional well-being. Why would you continue to make yourself sick for someone who isn’t worthy or compatible with you?
Give yourself the gift of being single!

Each and everyone one us really do need to love and take care of ourselves. And leaving a bad/toxic relationship is just that: Loving and Taking Care of Yourself <3
I ended a toxic relationship two months ago. And though I'm still grieving it, I have no regrets and so far I have spent the holidays with wonderful family members who reminded me of my worth and that I am loved.
Thank you Eric for writing this article and for using your gift to help others 🙂
Love and Light to all my brothers and sisters!
Great this is an amazing article thank-you
I have been through all of that – unhealthy relationships that made me physically ill. I even had Vertigo several times from the stress of it all. I knew when I had to ask my physician for Xanax to get through it that it was time. So, I left him and went on my own. I was afraid at first, but he was taking my very being away from me without me realizing it. The next thing would be to be babbling in the corner drooling all over myself. I had to stand up and take control over myself again. It has taken a while, but I feel like I am a much better me now. I enjoy being a single woman and I have learned to stay home alone and not be depressed like it’s a bad thing. If you can’t enjoy yourself then you need to work on that. I have learned that being single can have many advantages. I know many women and men that think if they don’t have a significant other they won’t be able to go on with life. I have good friends and I enjoy every moment of it. I have guy friends I hang out with for drinks and/or dinner and I go home by myself afterward. I make it clear to them and they understand and it’s the best thing for me. I’ve been through the drama and the clinginess and I don’t need it. I think I am the happiest I’ve ever been, although I do understand it’s not for everyone.
Happy Holidays, Eric !
Thought this was a great article, very good points, all very true. Nice job !
