I’m sure all of us dream of having our own house and living alone at some point in our lives. However, when the time arrives and things start to seem too real, it can get slightly daunting. While daunting as it is, living on your own comes with a host of benefits. In fact, when I had to move out at 18 for college, I was way too intimidated by the idea. The only good thing about it, which was not having to ask your parents for permission for every thing, also started to seem insignificant. But when I was finally doing it, I realised how liberating it was and quite life-enriching as well. So I’m going to list out all of the things that living on my own has taught me. Awesome things! Go.
Given that you’re in charge of the house, household responsibilities automatically fall on your shoulders and that tends to make you responsible overall as a person.
You learn to manage things all by yourself, things that you otherwise wouldn’t bother batting an eye at.
Living on your own also gives you a reality check of how expensive it is to run a house and teaches you the importance of saving and more importantly, the value of money.
It’s your space so you can go crazy with the interiors!
Living with your folks already comes up with a preset vibe. Living on your own gives you a chance to curate a space with a vibe you’d like yourself and other people to experience. From cosy to lavish and everything in-between, you choose the vibe.
Do I need to say anything more about this? I guess not!
Living alone can get lonely but that’s when you jump in to spare yourself of the lonesome and in the process, find solace in your own company. It’s a magical experience!
The feeling gets better with each passing day!
Having your own place gives you the liberty to make your abode a place that all your friends love hanging out at. You just tend to have a more active social life!
Ah, to walk around in your raw form, the way that God made you, is an exceptional emotion and nothing beats it!
