Miley Cyrus Is "Totally Cool" with Being Single.

May 08, 2015 2 min read

We've been posting a lot lately about the importance of healthy relationships. Fitness is awesome, and we post a crazy amount of workouts, healthy recipes and all that great stuff, but we believe that how strong and fit you are is just part of a larger conversation centred around wellness. To be well you need to have balance in your life - you need to train, eat well and find peace, love and fulfillment in your personal relationships. That said whenever an influencer or celebrity speaks out about relationships it shines a light on the topic and gets people talking - which is always a good thing. Seeing as it implies that there's something abnormal about being alone, it may seem a little outdated to say "a woman doesn't need a man." But still, in 2015, it is empowering to declare one's individuality and comfort with being single. And instead of writing a generic song about it, Miley Cyrus is opening up about her sexuality and experiences to promote her new nonprofit, Happy Hippie Foundation. “It has a lot to do with being a feminist, but I’m finally OK with being alone,” the singer told Time. “I think that’s something we have to talk about more: that you can be alone.” Untitled-1 Earlier this week, Cyrus spoke with Out about her struggle with gender expectations. “I didn’t want to be a boy,” she said. “I kind of wanted to be nothing. I don’t relate to what people would say defines a girl or a boy, and I think that’s what I had to understand: Being a girl isn’t what I hate, it’s the box that I get put into.” Similarly, the 22-year-old has had to confront society's restrictions on sexuality, as she has participated in relationships that “weren’t straight.” “I’m not hiding my sexuality. For me, I don’t want to label myself as anything,” she told Time. “We love putting people in categories, but what I like sexually isn’t going to label me as a person.” She continued, “There are times in my life where I’ve had boyfriends or girlfriends. And there are times where I just love being with myself and don’t want to give part of myself away to someone else...I think that’s a new freedom for women, especially. I don’t know that my mother would have been able to be 22 and secure in being alone. But my future doesn’t rely on having a partner.” I like Miley's attitude on being single. She refuses to be defined - or rather she refuses to let other peoples take on her define who she is. She is unapologetic about living her life, and she owns her sexual power in a way that we find empowering. You may not agree. Whatever you might think about Miley, it's cool that she is comfortable on her own - it's a lesson I'm still struggling to learn - because being single is not the one down position from being in a relationship - it's just another way to live and be.
