This kind of goes along with getting out of your comfort zone. Since moving into an apartment by myself, I have become so much more independent. I pay my own bills, I clean my own dishes, I watch my favorite tv shows, etc. Basically I have the capability of sticking to my routines and daily goals without the interference of a roommate who may need to talk or want to hangout.
5. You’ll Inspire Others
When you begin to embrace the idea of being alone and put yourself into real life situations, such as at a restaurant or concert, other people will notice your confidence. Instead of thinking that everyone is judging you, more times than likely those exact people are thinking to themselves, “wow, I wish I had their courage to be here by myself!” You essentially become an inspiration to others who may want to try things alone, but are afraid to. In doing so you will inspire yourself and boost your confidence!
And those are my five reasons why doing things by yourself doesn’t have to be a bad thing! Obviously I love hanging out with my friends & family and talking to people. I don’t think I could deal with being alone all the time, since I’m not a creature of solitude! But when you become drained of social activity, just remember that it’s okay to do things solo.
How do you feel about doing things alone? Are you an extrovert, introvert, or somewhere in between? What is something you have done alone that you initially were afraid to do, but realized it wasn’t so bad after?
