13 Ways to Be Fiercely Independent

The bigger picture of our existence is of our individuality, which is the honest truth about our life, we have to define our paths on our own and have to encourage ourselves to gain self confidence in building up an individual that can take care of himself/herself. Independence makes the crux of it all. At the end of the day, you’ll be standing alone, with no-one to support you. You’ll definitely have blessings of your loved ones, but to achieve a goal, the hard work is supposed to come from your side and this is what makes us Independent. Once we’ve attained growth in our respective fields, all we require is to zero fear to move ahead and make our marks. One should decode early in life, the ways to be fiercely independent, so as to swim in the depth of your dreams. You need to have faith in yourself and moreover, the belief that you can achieve what you’ve aimed for, in the technicality of things, never lose yourself and the fact that you’ve all you got, that is exactly why I’ll be talking about ways to be fiercely independent, with my 13 pointer list,

let’s uncover,

13. Voicing your opinion


From an early age, attain the habit of voicing out your views. Do not meekly surrender to rules, life is a tough deal and you need to understand its ways and mold yourself into an individual that is well informed and have strong opinions about the bitter reality of our society. Stand up for things you believe is wrong, begin to change your household and surroundings first, you’d help a lot of people, I can assure you.

12. Working hard


You have a goal, your aim is real high, but dreams are just dreams until you work upon them and if you wish to be independent in life, you need to achieve your goals, so that people believe in you, and also praise you for being a strong willed person. Once you put in all you’ve got, you’d never lose and that is a promise. Get, set, go!

11. Start an initiative

This Initiative that I’m talking about needs to address the issues that you believe is mis-understood and conceptualized in the wrong light in public, you need to change the way people think, enlighten everyone about you and your unconventional method also, about your capability to do things. sometimes, you need to explain it to people, how important changing yourself is with the situations, and how natural evolution is as a process. Hence, take an initiative to change the presumed notions, to be able to be independent and make your own decisions.

10. Take on responsibilities

Being Independent needs you to take on responsibilities that you’d earlier lay on others, all through out. You need to be involved with your duties and make your share to the society. Try and invest in the well being of your loved ones. Don’t you think, it is necessary to be independent?

9. Doing your own chores

Before you want all the freedom and liberty, stop asking your mom to cook for you, or your friends to do your work, start doing your own chores, have a routine, follow a target plan, learn how to drive, it is important that you know how to do stuff on your own, so that you never need anybody to come in and help you out for minimal needs.

8. Loving the right way

We all love our partners, our parents, but love is an emotion and being independent does not come with being too emotional in your life, you love everybody that is dear to you, but you need to stop depending on your partners and figure out your way of life, decide what you want for your life to be and enjoy your preferences. Ask them for advices, sure but never let go of your dreams.

7. Being proud of who you are


It is very important that you realize, that your own individual self is the best that you could be, and never be ashamed of yourself, be proud of who you are, and let everyone know. Show confident and sparkle all throughout life. Always aim to be better than yesterday, but do not let negative criticism grill you.

6. The Un-conventional choices


Don’t let your life be just defined by the conventional engineering, or the bachelors/masters degree. Choose to live your life your own way, by opting for choice that please you. Do what brings you pleasure. Opt for a career choice, that would bring you happiness.

5. To marry or not to marry

Do not ever let anyone tell you, that marriage defines you, you define yourself and marriage should be on the cards when you feel good about it, have a choice to marry or not, it’s totally cool, for you need to be with a person, not others. Do what makes you happy.

4. Learning to travel alone

Don’t fear to travel alone, the biggest task in turning into a self dependent individual is to figure out a way to travel alone, without any support and having confidence to deal or tackle any problems. Explore different places.

3. Standing by your decisions


Taking your own decisions is a task but standing by them is another, do not get swayed over by popular opinion, and make sure to stand by choices you’ve taken. Even though, time might trick you into not believing in yourself, but it is important that you do and stand by your choices.

2. Living on your own

By this, I mean, get out of the nested environment, by living alone, you’ll learn about the responsibilities one has in his life, and you will know more about, how to pay bills, manage money, and yourself, which also gives you confidence.

1.Earning/ having a job


Necessary, most important. All of us have talents, earn, tap on to your talents and get a job, be financially independent, you’ll definitely understand how to manage money and not waste it, you’ll realize the value of money, get to manage your account yourself. Make sure you save and never ask for support. Be capable of supporting yourself

Now, that you know, how you can be independent, always remember, you need to know how to take care of yourself. Life is not a bed of roses and it tricks you into its charm a lot, but by being self dependent, you’d never lose faith and will never fail to satisfy. At the end of the day, you’ll be proud of your choices and would always be secure, for you have the potential, you know you can and so it is necessary to get up on your feet and make the most of the time you have to build yourself up. Your parents are going to be there for you, but you too, have a duty towards the society and yourself, so make sure you fulfill your goals and give your life a definition.
