The idea of living alone can be daunting, especially if you’ve been living with your family all your life. It’s a huge responsibility and it’s certainly not easy, but it’s also incredibly fulfilling as these fab independent Pinays have found out:
You don’t have to worry about bothering anyone.
“You can come and go as you please, with no sleeping roommate to consider if you come home too late, or a roommate out till late that you have to wait up for. There's also no one around to distract you if you have to work from home. You also learn how to be independent and be responsible with your budget. If you miss out on paying your bills on time, like for electricity or water, you have no one else to blame but yourself so you really learn to be on your toes when it comes to keeping your budget updated.” - Maebelle, 35
You'll appreciate your family even more.
“Living alone makes you appreciate your parents more, as well as your siblings. Despite all the quiet and alone time you'll have for the most part, you end up looking forward to spending even just a weekend with them. Distance does make the heart grow fonder, indeed. But still, you will want to go back to your own space and freedom, where you can be your own person continuously learning and discovering more about yourself. That for me is the best part about living on my own.” - Maja, 27
Living alone is the best way to feel like you’ve got this whole adulting thing down pat, and it’s certainly more fun than we thought it would be! If you’re thinking of moving out, consider a secure condo in a central location so you won’t have a hard time getting around. A development that isn't too crowded would also be nice so you'll have lots of breathing space within your community.
