After a certain age all of us want to be independent and live our life on our own terms. Here are few ways in which you could get one step closer in being an independent individual.
Know where you want to reach
Every person needs to have goals and dreams and without it life could get very boring. You should plan your life ahead and decide where you want to reach in five years. You dream may seem far fetch at first but only way in which you could achieve it is by working towards it tirelessly. To be independent you must believe in yourself and know that your journey isn’t going to be easy but it will be worth it.
Learn new things
Up to a certain age we are quite dependent on our parents. For example we are dependent on our mothers to feed us food and on our fathers to drop us to places. The first step on being independent is to be able to do things ourselves. If you don’t know cooking then learn it and the same way learn to drive so you don’t have to trouble anyone else for your transport. Thanks to technology you can self-learn many things through YouTube.
What society thinks is not your problem
In certain cultures they don’t let a person become independent. This is mostly in Asian cultures where they don’t let the girl child grow. They don’t give them enough education so they could take care of themselves. Although this is changing with more parents spending equally on the education of both their sons and daughters. There still are a significant percentage of families who don’t support a girl being independent as society doesn’t accept it. If this is the case you should go against them and do what makes you feel right. Go for those Sydney driving lessons, choose the degree that you like and make your own money. At the end of the day you are your longest commitment so do what makes you happy and helps you stand in your own feet.Lastly start saving money from a very young age. It is important for every child rich or poor to understand the value of money because if you have your own money then you are 50% independent. You should also let go of people who are bad influence and who don’t let you achieve your goals. To reach a certain level you will have to make sacrifices. So in your journey of becoming independent you will lose some friends and you will make new ones and that is part of life.
