I love your point here.
I once heard someone say that people are afraid to breakup (or remain single) because they subconsciously know that "the escape from tyranny isn't followed by paradise, but a long arduous sojourn through the desert."
In other words, it's hard to be single! But it's during that long march through the desert that you find yourself, you develop confidence, self-awareness, and resiliency. Are those qualities worth being single for while?
I think so.
