While it's common practice for young adults in other countries to move out immediately after high school or college, that's not the case in the Philippines. I'm sure that most of us, who are well in our 20s, are still living with our parents, right? And there's definitely nothing wrong with that, but there are reasons why we should try living independently at least once in our lives.
Here are four young celebs in their 20s who might inspire you to take that big step soon:
1. Sue Ramirez, 22
The actress moved out of her childhood home because of showbiz. It wasn't easy, though. During an interview in 2018, she shared that she went through depression, partly because she was not used to living in a condo unit all alone.
This year, Sue bought a new house on the spur of the moment! She shared, "I'm a very spontaneous person. Pati yung pagbili ng bahay na 'yon, I think it was a spontaneous act for me. Parang, 'I'm going to buy a house. I'm gonna take responsibility for something na kailangan kayanin ko.' So, ito na 'yon."
2. Janella Salvador, 21
During a Tonight With Boy Abunda interview in April, actress Janella Salvador admitted to living independently because she went through a rough patch with her mom. According to Janella, she and her mom still have several problems to iron out, but they remain in touch with one another! Janella currently lives with her dog Maximus and several cats.
3. Maris Racal, 21
Maris Racal grew up in Davao and moved to Manila when she started her acting career. During an interview about living on her own and being a "homemaker," Maris shared, "Ganoon pala yung feeling na ikaw na yung pumipili ng mga gamit sa bahay. Kung ano yung mga style na gagamitin sa bahay mo. Dati kung nakakabasag ako, parang chill lang ako. Konting (sermon) lang ng mama ko, parang wala na. Pero ngayon kapag nakabasag ako, parang ang sakit sa dibdib." LOL! We can totally relate!
4. Julia Barretto, 22
Julia Barretto's house is still under construction and she currently lives with her mom and younger siblings. In December 2018, the actress shared photos of her "almost" completed home. In 2017, Julia joked she built her house so close to her family's home so that she could eat there every day! She also said she was most excited for her walk-in closet.
