Solve these six life problems by getting your own place

It's difficult to compromise all the time and think about others before making a decision. This is one of the most common dilemmas people who live with others face daily. Just think about the struggle and patience those who share a room with others need to maintain the peace in their tiny space.


Since it's January, the first month of the year 2021, it is the perfect time to enjoy freedom and start anew finally. But how exactly can you do this, and why is it crucial in building your personality? Which of these life problems ring a bell to you?

1. UNMET NEEDS: Independence and Leadership


If you grew up in a family home, chances are, you already have everything you need, and you don't seem to want any more. However, as you mature, you'd need your sense of independence and discovery that will help you find your strengths and stand on your own two feet.


While people who share a space with parents and younger siblings seem to be stimulating, it can also be an avenue for unnecessary drama brewing. Make it your life mission to embrace your independence early by getting your own space, especially when you start earning yourself. 


It may seem daunting at first, but having your own home can also be an efficient training ground for creating a well-rounded individual who will be more equipped to help out family members as well. 


2. Isolation from Friends


A study suggests that young people are more prone to stay at home compared with older generations. Additionally, in a 2018 survey conducted by a marketing research firm, 28% of millennials ages 24 to 31 stated that they prefer to have their 'social drinking sessions' at home because a simple plan to go out entails a considerable amount of effort.


This study is especially true and applicable to our current situation, with COVID-19 still a reality amid new virus strains and talks of a vaccine. People are advised to stay at home as much as possible, which can be both an advantage and a disadvantage to those who share a space with others.


Want to organize a party with a few close friends? Hang out and invite people over? These are the things you can't readily do when you're sharing a space with a big bunch.


On the other hand, getting your place allows you to do things as you please. Now that staying at home is the best practice, settling down in a place where you can start anew is the best gift you can give yourself this year.

3. Compromised "Me Time"


Running your own place is just another way to give yourself a break. In your own space, you'll find solace and comfort, a breather from stress. In general, living on your own will become an incredible learning experience, especially if it's your first time to move out and do things on your own.


The keyword is FREEDOM. If you want to own a pet, you can do so. If you want to lie down anywhere without thinking about other people, you're free to do so. In the process, you'll also learn discipline and self-control. It's up to you to discover these perks along the way.


4. Finding the Work-Life balance


Separating your workspace from your bed is one way to remind yourself about boundaries between work and personal life. You can only do so when you have adequate space to move things around and put dividers to help you distinguish the perfect place for both. 


Getting a place of your own allows you to assign certain corners of your home to specific functions like which ones are for work, recreation, resting, cooking, and getting chores done. This creates a separation in your work and personal space, allowing you to focus only on the tasks at hand without getting distracted.




5. Safety and security


Renting a place poses privacy and security issues, more so living with others in a tiny space where you share stuff. Whereas living on your own, in a community that assures you of a secured place with high-quality security cameras, guards, and where safety policies are being imposed is one less of a worry. 





6. Stability and drawing plans


When looking for a home, make sure to consider its long-term benefits, like viewing it as a future investment. Many aspiring homeowners look for one that's spacious and comfortable enough and has a high potential for bringing income returns in the long run - if you wish to set it up for business.
