1. It Makes You More Independent
When there’s no mom or dad around, you will soon understand that you will have to do everything yourself. Like finding a house on rent, paying your bills, cleaning your house, cooking your own food, shopping. Yes, it is a major pain in the stern, but it is a great tutorial in life.
2. It Makes You More Mature
Once you start living by yourself, you are the only decision-maker around. From deciding how much to save, how much grocery to buy, and other small and big decisions. every so often your decisions will work, sometimes they won’t, but it feels good to know you are in charge.
3. Makes You Better At Dealing With People
Living alone gives you the armaments you need to deal with all kinds of people around you; it makes you kinder, smarter, more understanding. You learn to live with those who might not unavoidably have the same opinions or lifestyle as you. It’s a good thing.
4. It Gives You More Privacy
Living alone means not having to deal with a interfering mama, or a snooping papa. You can bring anyone home, be on the phone for hours, drink, eat, party till five in the morning and no one will bug you.
5. You Learn to Adapt
You recognize soon enough that you won’t always get what you want. That you can’t throw tantrums. If there’s no milk, you learn to have black tea; if your preferred shirt is in wash, you wear something else. You get the drift. You learn to adapt to situations, you learn to cooperation. It’s nothing to be embarrassed of. Take pride in it. You’re growing as a person, this is the new you, embrace it, enjoy it.
6. It Gives You More Self-respect
The day a tiny voice in your head goes, “Let’s not ask dad for money any more. Let’s send him some instead,” you can look yourself in the mirror and give a big pat on your back. Your alteration is complete. You just cleared level 10 in life, well done.
