I have been living by myself in an apartment for a while now and it is the best way to go for me at this point in my life. I am not ready to move in with a significant other just yet and I don’t want to have roommates who will make a mess. I like having things neat and organized in my own place and having that freedom that you get when you live by yourself.
There are some downsides to living by yourself, like safety. I often feel vulnerable as a young woman living by myself in my apartment. I have heard loud noises at night before and sometimes it even sounds like someone is trying to break into my place. Although nothing has actually happened, it did make me realize how helpless I would be if something did happen.
Now that I have the best affordable home security, I no longer have to worry about having the protection that I need. I have been finding some great systems online that have been helping me to feel much safer in my home. I no longer dread being by myself in my apartment at night and I no longer feel like I would be a really easy target.
