Moving out of our parent’s house of a dream for most of us in our teenage, at least it was for me.
And I am also glad that I didn’t really do it until I was very sure of myself and it was no longer a whim,
I considered a lot of things before asking my parents to move out and asked myself a lot of questions,
The most important of them I’m listing below,
Things to consider before moving out of your parent’s house:
- Are you doing it for the right reasons?
- What is influencing you to move out?
- Are you ready to financially support yourself?
- Are you mentally prepared to be alone?
- Are you adequate enough in taking up chores?
- Where will you be staying? And how accessible it is from the places you want to be at.
- Are you ready to deal with people and their criticism?
- Are you fully prepared to move out?
Make this your checklist before you start moving out and it’s okay to learn along the way,
Just make sure you’re ready for anything that may or may not come your way.
Also, here’s a detailed account of most of the things that took place while I was moving out,
I’d like to think that I have summarised everything in this Youtube video, but I might as well have forgotten a lot of things
So, do check this one out as well, and let me know what you think,
Now that you have finalized that you really want to move out, you are prepared enough for doing so, what next?
Be patient, double-check everything, do not rush it,
Trust me, you don’t want to end up in a place where your mental and physical health is constantly being tested.
Find a place that is good enough for you to focus on yourself,
Prepare a basic necessities list, things you can and can’t live with, and things that are good to have but ok to not have as well.
And then if you think you’re all good to move out, do it!
Things that’ll probably be harder than they seem,
Not to be a bummer but do take note of the following things as well when you consider moving out, and if you are not at all ok with them, prepare accordingly,
- Being alone will make you feel extremely lonely at times
- Not finding the right company will be frustrating
- Making good friends will be harder than you’d think
- People will find the tiniest things to criticize, so ignore them if it’s not useful
- Adjusting to a new environment will come with repetitive mistakes, but that’s okay
Will keep this list short because not everyone’s story is the same,
So, do let me know yours,
And embrace all the unexpected things that happen.
Congratulations to you on moving out of your parent’s house!
