7 Mantras To Repeat This Holiday Season If You’re Dreading Being Single

With the holiday season upon us, everyone is busy going on cute dates to see Christmas lights or at the ice skating rink with their bae. It seems like every time you log onto social media, you see another picture of another couple happy and in love and celebrating the holiday season. This can make being single even harder than it already is. However, being single is never, ever the end of your world...even during the holiday season. If you're feeling an overwhelming amount of dread about being single, repeat these seven mantras to yourself on the daily, because trust me, this isn't the end of your world.

1. Self love is the best kind of love.

I'll be living this mantra all day, every day. Self love truly is a kind of love unlike anything else! At the end of the day all you really have is yourself, so why not love yourself with the kind of love you're pouring onto everyone else?

2. I am worthy of love.

It doesn't matter how long you've been single, you are still worthy of love. Don't let your current relationship status define your worth.

3. It's better to be single than with someone who isn't right for you.

Looking on the bright side of things - by being single, you are avoiding the pain of being with someone who could eventually hurt you.

4. Your past relationships ended for a reason.

Sometimes when we're single, we may want to revert back to that one ex we'll always have a soft spot for. But before you do this, repeat this next mantra to yourself - your past relationship ended for a reason. Going back to them may temporarily change your relationship status, but it will do nothing but harm your overall happiness.

5. There's so much more to life than your relationship status.

Believe it or not, whether or not you're in a relationship is only one component of your life! There are so many other elements of your life that deserve your time and attention.

6. There are many opportunities for love in the future.

Odds are, you're probably in your early twenties. You're young. You have A LOT of life left to live, and so much more time to find love. Just because you're not happily married by 25 doesn't make you a failure. And even if you are older, your life still isn't over. You have a future ahead of you, and with every new day is a new chance to find love. Don't dread being single this holiday season - you likely have many more holiday seasons ahead of you to share with that right person.

7. Enjoy being single.

Even though they tend to be forgotten, there really are many benefits of being single! Not only do you get to flirt with literally whoever you want (who said causal flings were a bad thing?!) but you also get time to focus on yourself, be independent, and learn to love yourself for who you are. This is a necessity to be happy in your future relationships. One day you'll meet someone who takes your single status away from you forever, so enjoy the single life while it's still yours.

Look, I Don't Want Your Boy, But 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored' Makes Me Feel Incredible

It makes me feel empowered. It makes me feel my best.


I have seen so many thoughts and complaints that Ariana Grande's new song, "break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored" is shallow.

Some are even saying, "this song just perpetuates everything that is wrong with dating and relationships in society today."

But, girl, I have to disagree.

You see, just because I sing this song at the top of my lungs in both my dorm's shower and alone in my car, I am not going to steal anyone's boyfriend.

I am simply pretending like I am some kind of bad chick that no one should mess with but in reality, I apologize for walking in someone's direction.

And, let's say, if I were to say something lighthearted or friendly to him and he responds with actions that propose cheating, he wasn't a good boyfriend in the first place.

Listen, girls: stop being so insecure.

You have a boyfriend. He loves you. He chose you. If another girl comes by and his eyes dart her way, his heart wasn't in it all the way.

Not everything is deeper than the skin.

Now, let me be clear, I am not saying that it's OK for girls to go around and try to steal boyfriends. Actually, that's a pretty trashy move that no one should attempt. I know it happens, though. I know it is everyone's worst fear.

However, there is no life living within fear of rejection and being left. If those are the things that linger in the back of your mind, you will never taste the freedom of living.

Truly living.

So am I a bad person, considering that 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored' is my anthem?

It makes me feel empowered. It makes me feel my best.

So no, just listening to Ari's new bop doesn't make me a bad person or a boyfriend stealer.

7 Tiny Things College Dudes Do That Give Off Major Small Dick Energy

If you exhibit any of these signs, re-evaluate yourself and your choices.


If you don't know what "small dick energy" means, let me give you the Urban Dictionary definition: "someone who shows off masculinity by being cocky, showing off, overly confident to overcompensate their 4.2 inch fully erect dick."

If you're afraid you might have this tragic disease: let me explain some of the key symptoms:

1. Adding girls you don't know on any social media platform just because you think they're hot.

I never thought friend requests could be so annoying.

2. Messaging said girls with some stupid pick-up-line to start a conversation.

What is this? Tinder?

3. Getting mad and aggressive when said girls don't message you back.

Bonus points for calling them mean names!

4. Getting even angrier when they do message back saying they're not interested.

Your insecurity isn't sexy.

5. Putting others down or not treating others with respect.

If you can't be polite to your servers or other customer service employees, you are the epitome of small dick energy.

6. Cornering girls at bars or parties and making them obviously uncomfortable.

If she doesn't seem interested in the conversation, she's not interested in you. Take a hint and walk away.

7. Any sort of forcefulness, pressure, or prejudice coming from a guy as he's talking to a girl.

BIG indicators of small dick energy and also toxic masculinity!

Now look, I know it sounds like I'm being a bitch, but let me tell you that I, and every other female on this planet regardless of race, sexuality, or anything that differentiates us, has been a victim of men with small dick energy. And it's not fucking cute anymore. In fact, it never was. If anything, it's uncomfortable, it's annoying, and it's concerning.

A girl is not a bitch, a slut, a loser, or any other name you want to throw at her if she doesn't like your advances. Calling her that is probably going to make her want to suck your (small) dick even less than before, if possible. We don't know you, and even if we did, we don't owe you anything. And if your first reaction to rejection is name-calling and blatant aggression, then you are likely a toxic person as it is who's got some deep-seated anger issues that you should probably take care of. And if you think that treating someone like that is okay and don't see anything wrong with that, then you might just be a psychopath, honestly.

Have some class and self-respect, guys, and leave the #smalldickenergy back in 2018.
