Moving out sounds like a rosy experience of sweet solitude and freedom. You practically get the chance to do what you want and when you want to. When you live by yourself, you don’t have to socialise when you don’t want to. Additionally, you can create the mood and energy that you want in your space without interference. That has got to be a great thing for your mental health.

What they don’t often tell you is that there is a dark side to it. Of course, you can easily set practises that deal with this, but it’s great to know about it before deciding to pack your bags.
