Anxiety of becoming independent

Everyone gets anxious from time to time. If an anxiety is interfering with many areas of your day-to-day life like schoolwork or relationships, it’s possible that you have an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders can make you feel nervous a lot of the time in different situations and for maybe long periods of time.
Becoming independent is a big decision. It can be an emotional, physical and financial challenge. However, if it’s the right time for you, it can also be tons of fun and a great experience.

Here are some things you might want to consider when deciding independent:

If you’re moving out of your parents’ house, you need to have a regular income to pay for a variety of ongoing costs, like rent, food and utilities like gas and electricity;

It might not be a good time to move if you’re in the middle of exams or coping with other major stresses or illnesses. It isn’t easy for anyone to pack up and leave everything that is familiar and try to fit into a new environment. But it’s especially hard during a time in your life when there are already so many physical and emotional changes taking place.

Relationship issues:
Moving in with your partner will change the dynamics of your relationship, so it’s important that you don’t feel pressured into it and are moving in for the right reasons. Make sure that you’re moving in together because you want to share your life with that person, and not because you’re tired of sharing the bathroom with your sister.
