If you're still living at home with your parents or relying on your partner to pay your bills, you might not feel all that independent. However, that doesn't have to be the case. You can still consider yourself independent while you're getting a little help from your friends and family. After all, it's tough to survive in this economy, especially when you're young. If you've been feeling like you're trapped or powerless, here are a few little ways to feel more independent right now:
1. Spend Time Alone
Independent people don't mind spending time alone. If you feel like you're always relying on others to help you through life, then you should spend a day or two with nothing but your own thoughts. Shut off your phone, turn off your laptop, and lock your doors. It's time for you to spend a little time with yourself.
