There’s nothing more that says “adulting” than moving to a new city. Heck, maybe even a new state.
Moving as a Millennial
The thought can be a tad bit daunting, but we strongly urge you to do it. It’s easy to stick on the sidelines wondering the could and could haves but being young means you have the opportunity to go out there and explore. The following are reasons why we think millennials should move away from their hometown.
It’ll Help You Find Yourself
Moving to a new city — where you don’t know anyone — will bring you closer to your inner self. You have the freedom to discover what really speaks to you without the influences or distractions from your close-knit of friends. Moving out will give you the opportunity to open your eyes. You may even obverse things from an outside perspective.
You Become Open-Minded
A new city will do that to you. The rules and the culture can be a tad bit different. As a result, you need to keep your mind open to different types of people. This is especially true if you decide to move to another state or even another country.
Change can be scary, but you can learn to embrace it.
A Taste of No Support
Friends will come and go. You’ll start building relationships wherever you decide to relocate, but there’s nothing like family that will truly help when you’re in time of need. But when move to a different state, that support system is tested as no one is around you to help. Who take care of you if you got sick? What if you get into an accident?
Moving to a different part of the country will test you, but it will shape you. It will teach you to be mentally strong and to fend for yourself when you need it the most.
