We wish to start this blog by stating a universal truth: Everyone is scared of the unknown, and almost everyone dreads change. And that is what you shall soon see if you muster up the courage to move somewhere new, completely alone. However, the notion of ‘alone’ does not always bring negative connotation, as you will soon learn by reading our list. Here, we have decided to highlight a few things which will change your life for the better, following your sole move to a new state.
- If you are afraid of losing your good friends, let us stop you right there. Most people are, but what they don’t realize is that the real friends will keep contact with you, and you are only likely to lose those who weren’t so real in the first place.
- By escaping everything, you not only escape the good but the bad as well. Leaving for a new state will feel a lot like suddenly leaving all your troubles behind. Bad memories, rusty old places, dreary streets, all that is bound to change into some colorful new skies and places to enjoy and explore. By changing the stale environment, you’ve given yourself a brand new opportunity to flourish.
- Self-responsibility and independence peaks during this period. You learn to not only be accustomed to being by yourself but to thrive from it. You learn to fully rely on yourself, and yourself only, and that helps give you an ego boost, and soon you will feel like you’ve grabbed the bull by the horns. Irreplaceable feeling.
- You will learn a lot about yourself. Moving somewhere new challenges you in ways you never knew were possible before. Up to this point, there will be things you were certain to be incapable of. Moving to a new state will prove to you that you are capable of a lot more than you think.
- You will start fresh in many aspects. You are given a new chance to prove yourself to your new colleagues, a new opportunity to make great friends and a whole new future to look forward to. Keep this in mind when times get tough, and you feel lonely in your new house or a flat. Remind yourself, during the first couple of months that the house or a flat will soon feel like a true home.
