10 Love Resolutions For Single Women

Love Resolutions For The Single Woman

Being single doesn’t mean you are sad or alone, it just means you are secure enough to be in your own skin to know what you deserve in a relationship. You won’t settle for anything less than that. To better understand this, there are a few love resolutions for single women that you can follow.

Love can be simple or complex. When a woman lets her love life run on autopilot, love becomes complex. If you’d like to simplify love, take a conscious approach by setting and following resolutions. Set your own resolutions or start with these 10 and simplify your love life.

Here Are 10 Love Resolutions For Single Women

1. Become Better.

Become better by taking responsibility; don’t become bitter by blaming others. Learn from each encounter and relationship that doesn’t work out by reflecting on your contribution to the undesired outcome. Then do the inner work to better support you in moving forward.

2. Stop Hooking Up.

If you want true and lasting love, take time to get to know a man (i.e. who he is, what he’s about, his values, his intentions, etc.) instead of having sex early on. A high-quality man will respect you and not pressure you into sex.

3. Have a To-Be list.

Having your ideal relationship is more about who you’re being. We teach others how to treat us by how we treat ourselves. If you want to be loved, respected, cherished, and trusted, be these very same qualities towards yourself and your partner.

4. Get Real About Love.

True and lasting love isn’t timely and doesn’t happen when you want it. In your early 20s, time is in your favor. Time isn’t as plentiful as you mature. Take a proactive approach to love by creating your ideal love life instead of falling into a relationship with men who aren’t quite right for you.

5. Settle for More.

You are worthy of a loving and fulfilling romantic relationship. Settle for more by being with a man who values your true self. Be with a man who supports you in living a full life, where you spend quality time together, with friends and family, and as individuals.

6. Lighten Up.

You’ll attract better men and relationships when you take a light-hearted approach to love. Let go of your expectations; when things don’t go according to your plan, you become disappointed and heavy about love. Setting intentions helps you lighten up and be open to what happens.

7. Expose Yourself.

If you’re single and want to find success in love, be open-minded and open-hearted. Put yourself in places to meet men. Try online dating, meetups, and activities where your potential mate might be. For instance, if you enjoy tennis, join a tennis league.

8. Stay The Course.

On your journey to love, don’t get derailed by men who aren’t right for you just because you’re lonely. Live your life fully by discovering and living your passions. Do things that soothe your soul like spending time in nature, getting a massage, journaling, listening to music, etc.

9. Enjoy The Journey.

If enjoying the journey to love has been hard, you’ve been focusing on something that happened in the past or something that might happen in the future. Being present lets you better enjoy the journey. Being grateful and having a positive support system is helpful as well.

10. Be Hopeful.

Your attitude seeps into every aspect of your love life. If you want to have love with more ease and clarity, choosing to be hopeful is the most supportive to travel.

Final Words

Following through on your resolutions guarantees having the love you desire. When you’re faced with a situation, choice, or decision that causes you to hesitate, ask yourself, “Is how I’m about to be or what I’m about to do, bringing me closer to or taking me further away from what I want?”

Make the choice that brings you closer to what you want. I’d love to know your love resolutions. Which resolutions will you practice?

How to Tame and Silence Your Inner Critic: 5 Ways

Ways Tame And Silence Your Inner Critic

“Turn down the volume of your negative inner voice and create a nurturing inner voice to take it’s place. When you make a mistake, forgive yourself, learn from it, and move on instead of obsessing about it. Equally important, don’t allow anyone else to dwell on your mistakes or shortcomings or to expect perfection from you.” ― Beverly Engel. This one quote perfectly shows why it's important to silence your inner critic.

Do you have a love/hate relationship with your inner monologue? You know, the voice that can motivate you to press on or stop you dead in your tracks and make you feel a few inches tall.

It is the same voice that attempts to protect you from shame, embarrassment, or making a mistake. If not tamed and regulated, this voice morphs into an intense critic, one that can sabotage and stagnate if it gains too much power.

When You Are Your Own Abuser: 7 Ugly Signs Of Self Abuse That You Ignore

Do You Emotionally Abuse Yourself

What do you feel when you hear the word abuse? An abusive, sadistic, narcissistic person who loves to torment others. But what do you feel when you hear the word self abuse? Are you an abusive, sadistic, narcissistic person who loves to torment yourself? No, right?

While we can easily spot the signs of abuse in someone else, it is often difficult for us to recognize the same signs when we abuse our own selves. We think it is normal to keep telling ourselves that we are no good. We believe it is okay to constantly compare ourselves with others. We feel it absolutely okay to let our insecurities, fears, anxieties, self-doubts and lack of confidence dominate our lives. Only it is NOT! Abusing yourself is as wrong and unethical as abusing others. 

And this is why it is important that you identify the signs of self abuse an
