5 Great Things about Being a Single Nurse
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it can get
pretty lonely seeing canoodling couples or your coworkers receiving flowers and
gifts from their significant others. Everyone else is having a romantic night
out on the town while you’re alone at home, with a glass of wine, Netflix, and
your cat. Or worse – you may have to work the night shift all alone by your
But being a single nurse comes with its own set of special
perks. When you’re single, you can really take time to focus on yourself,
discover new and exciting hobbies, and really relish your own independence
without compromise. Here are some of our favorite things about being single.
You’re in Charge of Your Own Happiness
When you’re a single nurse, you have the
luxury of living life on your own term. You’re fully responsible for your own
wellbeing. While it can be difficult, it can also be a blessing. Want to get an
amazing new pixie haircut? Do you want to take a week off and jet set through
Europe? You can!
When you’re single, you take a more
proactive approach to your life and live it on your terms, not somebody else’s.
You Can Focus On Your Career
Being single enables you to take on new and
challenging career choices without any compromise or constraints. If you’re
married, you can’t just move across town or across the country for a new job.
Take this time to really focus on what you want out of a career and get to
working toward your goals!
You Can Buy Those Cute New Pumps – Without
Anyone Else’s Permission
When you share a bank account with
somebody, you can’t make frivolous purchases simply because you want to.
Whether it’s that new designer handbag you’ve been longing for or a new set of
wheels that you really need, you can buy it as long as you can comfortably
You Can Create Your Own Routine
Outside of work hours, you can manage your
time however you want. You’re not dependent on anyone else’s schedule. That
gives you a lot more time to hit the gym, relax with a good book, or go out for
drinks with your friends.
It Means Living for Yourself
Sure, being single can get lonely sometimes,
and it’s annoying to see all of the early-relationship cooing on Facebook and
Instagram. But being single does have an upside. You can spend more time
focusing on yourself, cultivating a strong sense of independence and
self-directedness, and advance in your career. And when you do find someone
special, you’ve reaped all of the benefits single life has to offer.
