8 Things You Should Do At Least Once - All By Yourself!

Life can be confusing. A day of clarity can often be followed by a week of turmoil. So naturally, we feel the need every once in a while to unburden ourselves by talking to or being with someone else. But we fail to realize that we need some "alone time" too. It is important to reflect upon yourself and your choices alone. Here is a list of things that you should do by yourself, to understand yourself better.

1. Live alone


Have you ever tried living all by yourself? If you haven't, you really ought to. Living alone teaches a woman a wide range of things and essential life hacks. It will also teach you how to be responsible, how to handle your finances and a bunch of other things you will be thankful for later in life. Living alone teaches you that you are a strong, smart individual who can fend for and look out for herself.

2. Do "couple" things alone


It is uplifting to do things with yourself and for yourself. Buy yourself that coffee and those pretty flowers. It's completely okay to love yourself first and be completely comfortable in your own company!

3. Shop all by yourself!


Women often shop in twos or with a bunch of people. Yes, guilty as charged. For once, tell your girlfriends to chill and stay home. Go on a shopping expedition by yourself. While it can be great to get a second opinion sometimes, it's also great to make up your own mind and learn about your own individual style!

4. Travel


Every woman should travel alone at least once, because this way, she shows a certain level of confidence in herself. So go, see the world! The best part - you get to choose where to go and what to do next, each time!

5. Go through a heartbreak alone


Try not running to your best friend or whoever else for once. You can do this on your own. You are a strong, beautiful person. You can be your own hero. You just have to try and try again.

6. Take care of a kid


For real! There are two types of people in the world: a) the type who love kids; and b) the type who hate kids. But even for type a, taking care of a kid isn’t easy work. It requires a lot of patience and hard work. You also get to learn that just like a kid, it is okay to make mistakes, to cry and to be vulnerable - and most importantly, to be full of wonder.

7. Move to a new place/ country


Moving to a new place will make you realize that the world is your oyster! And those nimble feet of yours are ready to take on anything. You will grow as a person and have plenty of new opportunities to take on!

8. Make new friends without taking help from old ones


Why? Because you should - because you can. Let everyone see your beautiful personality. Through this process, you will learn that most people are friendly, and that everyone has a kind and good side to them - even if you hadn’t seen it earlier. You will realise that people will want to be friends with you for you - and nothing else!
