It’s not uncommon to find situations where individuals prefer to leave the house and learn to be independent at a very young age. This would include finding and funding your own place to stay, getting a job and sometimes even taking care of your own education. It is a huge responsibility, and while some people will find it difficult to adapt to such situations and deal with the pressure of living alone at a young age, those who are ready to take such steps would find it rewarding, as it empowers you and also equips you appropriately to take on new challenges, which helps create all rounded individuals who would contribute positively to society.
Fending for your self is definitely not easy, and it is always advisable for one to consider all the factors involved in living independently, and should so evaluate themselves and understand their own strengths and weaknesses, thus assessing whether they are capable and competent enough to survive alone. It is not always the case that people have to start taking care of themselves once they are considered young adults, as families usually support them until they are ready to take care of themselves. ‘Ready’ depends on financial stability, educational stability, job stability and the ability to find and afford a place to stay. This might be a mid level apartment or a small annex or room that can be rented out. When speaking of education, in some cases the cost is borne by the parents, and on other instances, it is financed by the student through means of student loans. To afford education and accommodation, the student would take up a part time job to earn a living. While the process sounds stressful, it helps to bring about individuals who will respond to situations in innovative ways.
Once the individual has properly built their lies and adapted to their new lifestyle, they can move on to being more adventurous both frivolously and in terms of new opportunities. Being settled in life gives way to career opportunities and investment opportunities, and with the proper advice from trusted and knowledgeable sources, investments can be made in the stock market and in the purchase of central property in HK, as land appreciates over time and is thus a valuable asset to have.
To reach a stage of stability and satisfaction in life, one should remain focused and determined in order to not veer off track and get distracted, thus losing all potential rewards that could be reaped from perseverance and hard work.
