The 30 day dating ban? I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Here's why.
Updated: Oct 12, 2020
For the past 28 days I've been single and ALSO not on the market.
I wanted to be happy being me. Not me in a relationship. Not me when I'm actively being flirted with. Me. Solo.
The challenging part is I'm not the biggest fan of me.
And for most of my adult life I've used dating to feel like things were okay.
So the themes of the last 28 days?
There are 2:
No. 1: "Welcome to the emotional dumpster fire. I'll be your host."
No. 2: "I'M AN UNSTOPPABLE GENIUS AND I'VE CRACKED THE SECRET TO HAPPINESS"
All in all, I'm glad I did this - and I'm not done yet.
I'm reconfirming that it's possible to become attractive without being some Apex Channing Tatum type or having to fake confidence.
Ironically, more ppl want to date me now that I'm unavailable and the world is locked down. Personal best. (self-five)
(Message me if you want to learn exactly how I did it )
The other big lesson I'm getting is about control. I'm getting better at loving things as they are vs. needing things to be different.
I'm used to being insanely self-critical about everything I do. Esp when it comes to work.
Loosening my death grip on the reins has made life more peaceful and flowy.
There more to be done - there always is, but I feel more in control than I have in many years.
