Some people believe that living alone is advantageous. The independence offers a lot of convenience in many important personal, economic and social issues.
Furthermore, they hold this notion that being independent sets them off from a lot of responsibilities. You would be caring less from the stress of having someone to dictate you of how to decorate the house, when to tidy up, what time to go home, what groceries to buy, who would use the bathroom first, and a lot more. Economically, living alone is practical too. This means budgeting for food and other necessities would only depend on you.
However, I don’t agree that living alone is advantageous in all aspect. Maybe if I have to work overseas far from home, indeed being alone would be an only option. But for someone whose family is just near, I still adhere to the Filipino’s mentality of “family”. It is always warm to come home every single day from work with your family, spending dinner together and have an opportunity to talk about everything. It is also gratifying to spend some of your money with them, and create that opportunity to help each other. Financially, everyone can contribute to the budgeting; one should just conform and adjust with others.
In my experience, I have been an Overseas Worker for 5 years in the Middle East. I did a pretty good job living alone in the company’s villa for Filipino employees. Unfortunately, for 5 long years too, I kept missing the crowd that I have back home, and I thank the technology we have now that we can easily access making video calls in order to eliminate homesickness. Though, I believe that we have friends around us to keep us company, still nothing can suffice the company with one’s family.
Therefore, I still adhere to the thought that living with family is more advantageous to the society; psychologically it uplifts spirits and improves our social well being.
P.S. Just tonight I was skimming over some essays I wrote when I reviewed for the IELTS test few months ago and the one you’ve read up was one of them. I published it here because I was reminded of @bbyblacksheep article about Comfort Zone.
In a personal note, for Filipinos, I know we are so much inclined in working abroad for better opportunities, thus it seems living alone in a foreign land is just a common segment of our lives. So, I think it is always best to spend every moment with your family now that you’re with them so when the time comes that you have to leave and work from afar, you can always look back on the time and moments you have invested with them in the past.
Leaving our comfort zone can be sad really, but we can set our mind for better chances to grow and other helpful/ brighter perspective in order to make leaving less painful.
