  • When I started living alone, no one told me that life was complicated.

  • When you come home from work, there is no hot food waiting for you.

  • You can only open the refrigerator by yourself and drag your tired body to make your own dinner.

  • When the lamp in your kitchen breaks down, you will wonder whether or not to repair it .

  • It seems that you can skip dinner anyway

  • When you want to talk to someone before you go to bed, you find that you can only contact others by mobile phone.

  • But no one can chat with you face to face.

  • When you live alone, you will feel a little bored and tired.

  • But as time goes on, you will gradually enjoy your own life.   

  • The first thing you noticed is it's quiet, really quiet.

  • You can go an entire weekend without talking.

  • It is like living in a vacuum, just the soft hum of a fan or AC running.  

  • When you come home from work, you can rest on the sofa or bed for a while and start thinking about what to eat tonight.

  • At this time you open the refrigerator which contains all kinds of food you like.

  • Your cooking skills have gradually improved and you have begun to learn how to make your favorite recipes.

  • You know how to repair the toilet and how to install a new lamp.  

  • You start to constantly dress up your space and make your room the most satisfied

  • All the space around you can be used to reflect your complete mindset.

  • Oh, and your music all the time.

  • And also, take the phrase "dance like nobody's watching" to a whole new level.  

  • When you are ready to go to bed, you will set aside some time to chat with friends,

  • and then make an appointment to come out and get together.

  • Then you start to arrange your own entertainment activities.

  • Watch your favorite movies or do some handicrafts.

  • Or learn how to play a new instrument.

  • In short, when you start to live alone you will feel a little overwhelmed,

  • but gradually, you will fall in love with it,

  • because you will be freer and you will be more responsible for yourself.

  • One day, you need to learn to live by yourself.

When I started living alone, no one told me that life was complicated.
