Moving out. It’s exciting and scary at the same time. At least it was for me. I was excited to be able to be on my own but I was also a bit nervous. I have always been someone who likes to spend time alone therefore living alone wasn’t something that seemed too scary; I was actually looking forward to it. I also wasn’t afraid about maintaining my own money and staying on budget, because I have always been very careful and strict with my money. Thus I wasn’t worried about it.
I grew up in house that was filled with life, there really wasn’t a quiet moment ever. In our house lived my family that includes my younger sister and brother as well as my parents and our dog. And top of that our house always has guests over; friends and family. There rarely was a quite moment in our house and that’s why for me the silence was the biggest difference. It was something I wasn’t used to and sometimes it made me feel alone.
In this short time I have gotten to known myself better and I have gained confidence and become more independent. And I love that feeling of being in total control of everything. I love that I can do things whenever I want, that I can arrange everything just as I like it, that I can watch what I want and if I like I can even walk around naked and no one cares. I do recommend closing the curtains if you do this, otherwise you will give your neighbours quite a show. But still even for someone who likes to be alone things can get quite overwhelming sometimes and you can feel lonely. This has happened to me; usually when I am having a bad day or I am sick and feeling lonely. And it’s not a nice feeling, but I have found things and tricks that prevent me from feeling lonely while I am alone.
So I want to share with you how I avoid feeling lonely. I hope these five tips helps you and give you an idea of what you can do to avoid feeling lonely.
