With the cost of living in Ghana getting increasingly expensive, maybe you’re currently not thinking about moving out but we want you to imagine for a second, what would happen if you decide to move out and get your own place. If you have the means to get your own place and you weren’t sure so you were looking for a sign, here it is. Here are all the reasons why living alone can be the perfect vibe you’re looking for.

1. You grow up

When you live alone, you’re in control over everything going on with you. Paying rent and other bills will teach you how to live within your means. You’re empowered to make decisions about your lifestyle and choosing the direction you want your life to go. You get to decorate how your space should look like and save towards getting things you want. You feel a sense of accomplishment after getting everything you want.

2. Privacy

If you grew up with a lot of siblings and had to share a room with them up to the time you move out, you’ll understand the difference. Sometimes you just want to be alone but it’s not possible because you can’t ask them to leave. Sometimes all you really want is some alone time and you can have all of that when you live on your own.

3. Live by your own rules

This is one of the major reasons why a lot of people want to stay on their own. You can go out and come back at any time you want without your parents making a big deal about it. If you want your friend or partner to sleepover, you can do that without asking anyone for permission. You do what you want.

4. Decorate however you deem fit

When you live with your parents and probably share a room with siblings, you can’t be as creative with your space as much as you want because it’s a shared one. There may not even be enough space for you to do what you want to do but when you’re in your own space, you have the creative freedom to explore what you want, how you want.

5. Get to know yourself better

Living alone will help you get to know who you are. Are you a clean person? Can you survive being alone in your room? Do you need people around you in order to thrive? After enjoying your independence and living on your own, are you someone who would like to go back and share your space with someone else for example, if you get married? Once you know who you really are, it’s easier to move on from there.
