Do you feel you need to stop looking for love? Are you considering letting go of looking for love because you have been trying and trying and trying to find it and failing?
Are you sick of dating sites and coffee shops and endless conversations with people who definitely aren’t the people for you?
I get it. Looking for love can be exhausting.
I always tell my clients that it’s ok to let go of looking for love. It doesn’t have to be forever but sometimes taking a break is the best thing that you can do.
5 Things That Happen When You Stop Looking For Love
1. You can give yourself some rest.
Looking for love is exhausting work.
You have to make a dating profile, spend endless time swiping right or left, make tons of small talk with strangers, deal with people stalking you or disappearing, and then ultimately being disappointed when something doesn’t work out.
Who has the time and strength to deal with that?
Letting go of looking for love will give you your life back. It will give you a chance to spend time with friends, exercise, binge watch your favorite show, got to bed early and maybe even read a book!
Imagine what that would feel like, to not spend all of your time in the pursuit of love but to take a break and rest. Pretty amazing right?
2. You can focus on yourself.
It sounds like a cliché, I know. It’s a phrase people use when they have just recently broken up with someone and they want to seem strong.
But focusing on yourself is actually a fundamental part of being a healthy human, especially one in the dating world.
For many of us, dating means putting ourselves on hold. It’s hard to be our authentic selves when we are dating because we always feel like we have to put our best foot forward, to be someone who others would want to be with.
As a result, we sometimes lose ourselves in the process.
We stop doing yoga because we don’t have the time and we lose touch with how important it is for our sanity.
We stop having girls’ nights out with our friends because we want to be free to date and therefore we don’t have people to laugh with or call us on our shit, both of which are super important.
