Reasons why it's not a good idea to live with your relatives or friends while studying abroad

Choosing an accommodation is one of the toughest decision to take when travelling abroad for studying. There are many reasons why you need to live alone. First of all you need to acknowledge the fact that we belong from the society we would get so much pampered. The thing that you need to bring it in your knowledge that we belong from a third world country and it is difficult for us to adjust in an advance or forward country.

Follow these steps if you want to live alone abroad and want to do everything on your own.

Learn to live alone:

Living alone is the best thing you can go at your own whenever you want No one is going to ask you where you are heading and you are going to be responsible because no one is there to remind you what you have to do so it's pretty much like a relying on your own.

Another thing you need to realize that you can invent your own life in your own way you can adjust your life the way you want if you are a workaholic and if you're working online you can sleep at day and you can also sleep all day and no one can dictate you. It is the best feeling in the world.

Self-help is the best help:

Another reason is you can take yourself out of the comfort zone. You learn the concept of self-help. The idea of getting yourself out of the comfort zone is to make you creative and how can you be more productive in your life. It's very easy to stay in the place but it requires real guts to moving to a new place with new people and push yourself to do something new. If you are in someone's house there are different cleanliness and hygiene standards and you have to deal with it. being alone give you the leverage of maintaining your room once a week whenever you are free to do but its feel like a responsibility if you are living with your relative.

Stay- focused:

Travelling for long term will also teach you how to move to a new place real quick and adjust any new place. The point is to make your self-attached to the community you are living in or you will get lost and unsettled. You can sleep unexpected connections while if you are with your relatives you are being constantly thought not to talk to set certain community or certain group of people because they are opposing you sets of beliefs of your experiences. You can create more career opportunities by making on your own.

Privacy matters:

Privacy matters the most if you are living with a friend. You might not want to discuss everything with him, but sometimes you need privacy to discuss some personal and family matters. Being with relatives is not a good idea, staying for a longer time in anyone's house will create a problem for them you can in infringe in their privacy and you may not like your freedom to get exploited for you Mamu, Uncle or Khalu. Another thing to consider you will have the same environment as your home but the thing is it will be more of a formal stay at someone's place where you might not feel comfortable.

You will not dependent on others:

You will have less and less interaction with new friends and you cannot have much long night stay with your friends if you want to work on a final project. You have the freedom you want if you are living alone. You will truly enjoy the pleasure of living alone and doing everything by your own.
