Studies show that being in a relationship doesn’t make you happier or healthier than being single.
Many people live most of their lives single and are very happy and healthy.
What causes stress and a lower quality of life is going back and forth between being single and coupled. The stress of bonding with someone and then separating over and over wreaks havoc on your wellbeing whether it’s with the same person or different people.
It is worth it to heal this pattern.
