Recently, I discussed with many students on living independently. Many of them explained to me that they wanted to get out of the house but were still afraid. Living independently is not scary at all. It is what many of us are currently doing. However, being independent should not be a way to express your freedom to do whatever you want. Rather, you should consider how to execute your plan, or why it is needed in the first place at all. Many of us do not need to get out of our parents’ house if we live and study close by. In this economic climate, in such cases, it is better to save the rent money to help your parents pay your bill. However, if it is necessary for you to live independently – either because you are studying or working in a different city, then you should think carefully about how you can pay for all your bills so that you will not have too much debt because you get your first real job. Getting out of the house takes some courage, but it isn’t as hard and scary as it seems. It just requires us to be realistic with what we need.
