You’ve grown to be independent. You love doing things on your own and being recognized for your success.
2. You spend most of your time out of the house.
Rather than staying home, hanging out with friends or your significant other often becomes a daily routine.
3. You should move out of your parents’ house if you’re used to making your own rules.
Parents rules can be strict sometimes and you might not always agree or abide by them. When the phrase “I can’t wait to do whatever I want” starts to replay that’s how you know you’re ready to make your own rules!
4. You have a steady job and income.
Having a steady job can keep your financially stable if you are smart about managing your money. If you are financially stable you are aware whether or not you can live on your own or if you have to wait it out.
5. You have good relationships with the people in your life.
Having a good relationship with your family, friends, and others around you is an important step to moving out. It assures that if you run into trouble other people are available to reach out to, too!
6. You have set goals to achieve.
If you have goals that you are ready to achieve, there will be no one to tell you how to set them or how not to. You have the determination and the motivation to do it for yourself.
7. You’re excited to dorm/apartment/house shop.
To be able to decorate your own place with a flare of your own style becomes fun and exciting when you start thinking about moving out.
8. You are prepared to have to pay your own bills.
If you pay your cell phone bill, car insurance/maintenance, or anything else that you have to pay for, you have experience with paying bills so you know what to do when you move out and have to take care of your own bills.
9. If you have different meal preferences than your parents’.
Having different food preferences than parents can be hard when living in the same household. Cooking (and living) on your own may be more for you.
10. You need more privacy with your life.
Privacy is hard for parents to understand when living under the same roof. They feel since it’s “their house” they should know what’s going on. Whether parents go through your phone or look through your belongings, respect and trust can be lost. Privacy is important for an individual.
