I really love the concept of Yin/Yang because for me it represents balance in all things. Nothing is ever all good or all bad there is a middle where the two meet and it is what I strive, have been striving to see, to get comfortable in.
Yin is the dark element: it is passive, dark, feminine, negative, downward-seeking, consuming and corresponds to the night. Yin is often symbolized by water and earth.
Yang is the bright element: it is active, light, masculine, positive, upward-seeking, producing and corresponds to the daytime. Yang is symbolized by fire and air.
So the Yin/Yang of being single for me is this:
Yang: I never have to answer to anyone.
Yin: It’s nice to have a second opinion.
Yang: I can hog the bed, go to sleep at night anytime I want and am never awakened by someone else’s alarm clock.
Yin: Sex and Cuddling are wonderful.
Yang: I never have to pick up another person’s dirty socks, underwear, dirty dishes or fold their laundry.
Yin: There’s no Yin in that!
Yang: I have uninterrupted quiet-time to create, read, exercise and walk the dog.
Yin: It’s nice to talk to my partner about my ideas and my day’s events.
Yang: I never have to remind someone else that there are things that need to get done around here.
Yin: I have only myself to remind.
Yang: I get to examine my past relationships and see what I did to contribute to their demise.
Yin: Self examination is uncomfortable.
Yang: I am able to re-create my life the way I want it and really get to know myself.
Yin: Letting go of the dream of my old life is challenging.
Yang: I can fall in love again.
Yin: I can fall in love again.
