By- Shreya Sharma
Being Independent and on your own is never that easy. But when you get used to it, you quite enjoy this freedom and become more of responsible. It is like a teaching and molding phase of your life. You learn and grow into someone you never ever thought you could ever be. You learn to love yourself and be self-dependent. Here are 10 things you do when you get used to being on your own.
You are comfortable being alone
If you feared to be alone, congrats you have overcome your fear. You have learned to fall down and get up. You have become used to, to being alone. Initially, it was tough, but now it is a natural thing for you.
You do not need other people
You are comfortable being alone. You do not put efforts to build new relationships and friendships. You wait for someone to come to you because you have become so used to this loneliness that you do not know how to find a way out of this.
You are comfortable with yourself
You motivate yourself, work on your communication skills, embrace your flaws and try to understand yourself. You make efforts with yourself and it all makes sense to you.
You do not care about what other’s think
You no longer wonder how people will react if you take yourself out on a date, or movie or dinner. You have accepted your loneliness and no one can now make you feel bad about it.
You forgot how to coexist
You are self-sufficient now. You do not remember the last time someone offered you help with your bags or helped you with the tire of your car. You forget what it feels like to be a part of a team and you are comfortable doing everything alone.
You love this loneliness
Sometimes you hate it, but you love it because it helped you grow and depend on yourself and know the treasures you hold. Now you understand the benefits of being alone and how to enjoy your own company.
You know yourself better
You are comfortable because your life is not revolving around someone. You will be making your own decisions. You will have to do a lot of self-reflection and soul-searching to know what kind of life and person you truly want.
You know how to avoid heartbreaks
When you are alone you know better things to do to fill the void of your life rather than indulging into fake romance. You do not end up settling with someone who is not right for you just because you are alone. You can easily avoid the risk of breaking up your heart.
You learn the art of let go
When you were lonely, you learned how to not attach yourself to someone and how to let go. You now know that you cannot control your fate and there would be something great in this too. But now you have understood that learning to let go is the best favor you can do for yourself.
It boosts your self-esteem
You don’t associate loneliness with ‘unwanted’ or ‘unloved.’ You begin to believe that this is exactly what you need at the moment and if that ever changes, you’ll know that you’re making a decision for all the right reasons and that you can always live by yourself and enjoy being alone without being unhappy.
