So what if you’re 30 and you’ve just gone through a break-up? It’s not the end of the world. In fact, it could be the best thing that’s ever happened to you.
Society tells us that we should be in a relationship by a certain age, but who says that’s true? There’s no rule that says you can’t be single at 30. In fact, some people never settle down because they never find the right person. And that’s okay.
You’re never too old to make the right choice for yourself. So don’t let societal pressure dictate your life; it’s never too late to make the right decision for you. And if you’re still not convinced in this article we tell you about 5 benefits or perks of breaking up at 30. So read on.
5 Reasons why breaking up at 30 is fine and cool:
1- You probably dodged a bullet:
There’s no denying that break-ups are tough, no matter what your age. But when you’re in your 30s, you maybe have a little more perspective than you did in your 20s. And that perspective can help you see that, sometimes, breaking up is actually a good thing.
Maybe you dodged a bullet by getting out of a relationship that wasn’t right for you. Maybe you realized that it’s better to be single than to be in a horrible marriage or toxic relationship. Plus consider that crimes of passion do exist and physically abusive relationships too, so maybe you’d prefer to be alone than have stayed in a relationship that turned so bad that it cost you your life or ruined your future.
So try to find the silver lining in the situation, rather than think that the only other option possible, if you were not single, is having been in a fulfilling and amazing marriage. We’re pretty sure there are other scenarios that could’ve been a lot worse than being single at 30 and you dodged them all! Plus what’s not to love about being free, single, independent, and full of life?!
In other words, don’t beat yourself up if you find yourself single at 30. Instead, take it as a sign that maybe things just weren’t meant to be and that’s okay.
2- Consider yourself brave:
If you find yourself single at 30, maybe stop and consider yourself brave. That’s not to say that being in a relationship by 30 is bad or people who are taken by that age aren’t brave enough. It’s rather to say that you shouldn’t stay in a relationship simply because of your age. And trust us many other people stay in relationships for all the wrong reasons and end up being miserable for life.
Relationships are hard work, and they’re only worth it if you’re with someone who makes you happy and who you truly want to be with. If you’re in a relationship simply because you think it’s what’s expected of you at this age, then chances are it’s not going to last.
So consider yourself brave enough to have taken the plunge and separated from someone who’s not a true match rather than staying just not to be single. Staying in relationships for the wrong reasons is always a horrible idea. Unless you love the person you’re with unconditionally, enjoy their company, and would be lost without them; there’s literally no other reason that’s good enough to make you stay.
So, if you find yourself suddenly single at 30, don’t despair. Instead, consider it an opportunity to find someone who is truly right for you.
3- We all know that 30 is the new 20:
Another good thing about breaking up at 30 is that you’re not so old after all. We all know that in today’s world 30 is the new 20 because life expectancy is higher than ever, so you’ve got plenty of time to find someone new. And who knows?
Maybe this break-up is actually a blessing in disguise. Maybe you needed some time to find yourself before you can be truly happy in a relationship. Either way, there’s no need to wallow in self-pity. Just pick yourself up and keep on going. There’s plenty of time for love.
Besides, breaking up gives us a chance to focus on ourselves and our own happiness. By 30 you still can travel the world, learn new things, and enjoy your freedom. So while breaking up may not be ideal, it’s not the end of the world either. You don’t know what the next chapter of your life will be about, maybe this break-up will turn out to be a good thing in the long run.
4- It can motivate you to focus on self-care:
Breaking up at 30 can be a good incentive and give you a new reason and newfound motivation to take care of yourself. No longer do you have to worry about impressing someone else; now you can focus on being the best version of yourself for YOU. You can finally adopt a style you like and find it suitable without worrying about anyone’s opinion.
This can also be a great motivator to get in shape, eat healthily and generally be fit. At 30, if you play your cards right get enough sleep consistently, exercise, eat healthily, and treat yourself to a few spa days here and there you can easily look even better than you did in your late twenties.
Not only will you look better, younger, and more radiant but it can also help you feel good, refreshed, and happy. So if you’re feeling a bit down about your recent break-up, just remember that it’s actually a great opportunity to start taking care of yourself!
Maybe when you do it all, you will qualify to be with a partner that you’d probably think is out of your league right now and based on where you’re at today. However, nothing stops you from improving your looks, health, and diet and becoming a super-fit version of yourself!
5- You can focus on growth on a professional level:
Breaking up at 30 can also be a good thing because it will be your chance to re-focus on your career or business. Your 30s can be a point in your life where you can focus on self-betterment and personal goals.
And, because you’re single now maybe it’s for the best as you will not have to worry about pleasing someone else or making time for a relationship. You can put all your energy into your personal projects until you figure something out and unlock your full potential financially or professionally, at least.
Plus, you’ll probably learn a lot about yourself during this time; including your aspirations, dreams, wishes, goals, and true purpose. So breaking up at 30 can actually be a good thing if you use it as an opportunity to focus on your own life and growth.
