1. Feel your joy

Someone who misses a single life while in a relationship may be dependent on their partner out of joy or out of habit. It’s important to figure out for yourself what makes you happy so you can be happier with someone else in return. When you learn and become aware of how you can take care of yourself, your own life will be better and thus you will be better towards your partner. Having ways to calm yourself down and create joy in your own life are extremely valuable life skills, which aren’t easy to achieve.

2. Rediscover your interests and passions

Maybe you miss single life because you’ve forgotten who you are outside of your relationship. You’ve forgotten about your passions and interests. A great way to get back in touch with your single person is to pick up an old activity that you loved as a single person or maybe even discover a new interest that’s just for you. In doing this, you will find yourself. Focusing on the freedom you still have even as someone in a relationship can help you change the way you think. If you’re in a relationship, it doesn’t mean you’re in jail, you can always be the best version of yourself. It’s good to have things that are only yours and remember that you were attracted to your partner when you had your own life.

3. Remember why you’re with your partner

Even if you and your partner aren’t in decline, being alone can sometimes seem more appealing than investing time in your relationship. When you find yourself missing a single life, think about the reasons why you’re with your partner. You will know that you love your partner if you choose to be with him instead of having to be with him. You’re comfortable being single, but you prefer their company because they enrich your life. Of course, if you don’t prefer their company to your own, then you may be free right now.
