Be self-dependent

When living out, one of the biggest facts (or boons) is that you shall have no one to your help, neither when you are ailing, not when you are elated. We say boon because if taken positively, this phase in your life shall teach you to be self-dependent. From taking up a job to manage your expenses to cooking your food and doing your dishes, many new experiences are to come your way.

Make new friends but also enjoy your own company

When living out in a new city, you might want to explore places and make new friends. But you also must learn to enjoy your own company. You shall find with time how peaceful and worthwhile the solo morning walks, winter afternoon readings, cleaning and self-decorating your dwelling are. You could also go on solo explorations around the town or some grocery shopping. Not only will these do away your fear and shyness but also make you more and more self-dependent.
