Despite being in the 21st century, out-of-date ideas surrounding what women should be doing, and when, continue to slow them down. Successful women are still being asked why they haven’t settled down or when they’re going to have children instead of being questioned about their creative process or next career move—as if their relationship status is somehow representative of their value. And what better day to magnify the bias against single people than Valentine’s?
The truth is that being single holds a lot more merit than we’re conditioned to believe, and it can be life-changing when you decide to celebrate independence and self-care instead of fearing it. Check out what these incredibly successful women have to say about the power of being alone.
