Build up the feeling that life is “self-chosen.”

Writer Anna Brech talks about the “joy of autonomy.” According to Brech, “the feeling that your life is self-chosen – is the number one contributor to happiness.” Therefore, one who is unmarried can continuously engage in activities that they get to choose, and build up that feeling that their life is “self-chosen.” While, of course, autonomy can still exist within a relationship, it is quite difficult to fully maintain your sense of self while being completely devoted to another.
