Moving out of our parents’ home is a significant milestone for many of us. It marks a new chapter of our lives where we leave the proverbial nest to venture out into a brave new world. Indeed, moving into a co-living space takes that to a more literal level when we’re able to interact with an international community at our doorstep. Moving out could also give us a psychological boost akin to when New Year comes around and we feel so energised and ready to achieve our resolutions — a clean slate to leave the past behind and start anew. However, do we actually start on a clean slate, or are there factors that we should pay attention to even as we begin a new journey in life?
Bringing Past Issues Over
Moving out to avoid certain situations may not necessarily be a bad thing. For instance, one could move out to get some breathing room from a member of the household that they can’t get along with, or to escape the scrutiny of overprotective parents. Communal living in Singapore also allows you to break away from the monotony of daily routines, to meet new people from all over the world. However, what you can’t hide from are the issues within you.
For instance, if you’re struggling with discipline or some other problem that you haven’t been able to work on, moving out doesn’t magically make those issues disappear. Internal struggles require work wherever you find yourself, more so when you’re alone with no supervision to keep track of your progress. For all the hope that moving out brings, living on your own is definitely a learning curve, albeit one that will nurture you into an independent and responsible individual.
While moving out doesn’t erase prior unresolved issues, especially those within us, it empowers a new attitude to embrace the challenges that await us in our new co-living rental in Singapore. The renewal of the mind is a powerful tool that shouldn’t be discounted. Often, we find ourselves stuck in a rut from the same old routines, but a fresh perspective in a new environment could help remove the mental blocks that have been in our way this whole time.
Moving out can also stimulate us with new challenges. Living with family could sometimes plateau our growth as humans, and moving out affords us that fresh start that we need to become more responsible though living independently. We in turn become more resourceful, resilient, and innovative with our solutions to problems that life throws at us. This is sometimes easier said than done, as the only consistent theme surrounding leaving the nest is the challenges it brings. But, it’s exactly what we need to grow, and through these experiences, be our own person and enjoy what life has to offer.
