In a world where being called a third wheel has become synonymous with being the lonely single person, it's quite easy to loathe happy couples and despise them for all their JaDine-worthy #relationshipgoals much less be seen hanging out with them. Come to think of it, a third wheel really seems sad when thought about as a part of a dysfunctional bicycle, regarding the fact that a bicycle can in fact, work perfectly well with just two wheels, and a third one is something like a filler (ouch). But looking at the brighter side of the situation, the third wheel is vital when it comes to the tricycle! Without it, the whole thing would collapse and be rendered useless; and another thing that would be useless without that extra leg? A camera tripod. Okay, I may be trying way too hard with those analogies but you get the point. Here are some awesome unspoken truths as to why you shouldn't feel bad about being the third wheel!

When you're a third wheel, you realize the true value of loving yourself and spending time with yourself and enjoying who you are as a person in general. After all, when you're already juggling school, family, friends, extracurriculars, and work (for some of you) a relationship just isn't part of the question; and you'd rather just sit back, relax, and enjoy your single life.
