5 Signs That You're An Independent Spirit
Allison Pericles

Everyone is alone at some point or another. For most people, being alone means feeling lonely. But for others, it means feeling liberated. How does being alone make you feel? If you lean more towards liberated, you're probably a pretty independent person. Here are five more signs that you're independent.

1. You're hesitant to ask for help for anything because you feel you can help yourself.

This is probably one of your worst traits, but it shows just how independent you are. You hate asking for help because it puts you in a vulnerable position and you feel as if you're damaging your pride, whether you're just assembling furniture or asking for a loan.

2. Your thoughts are well-developed.

While you sometimes feel conflicted, you're very in touch with yourself. You've probably thought out many details about yourself, and you've got a very strong and unique perception of the world, because you don't derive it from the perceptions of others.

3. You have no problem with doing things on your own.

You've grown accustomed to strolling past flocks of girls at the mall. It doesn't make you feel lonely or friendless, because you just know that you prefer doing these kinds of things alone.

4. You get told that you're mature for your age.

Self-reliance is a rare trait in young children, but you spent your childhood years playing on your own. Not being with others gave you a chance to quietly and peacefully observe, which is why you were the first one in your class to know everyone's name and be able to get a good idea of what they liked and what kind of person they were. You grew up and got a chance to sharpen and refine your skills, and now you can read people like a book.

5. You had a little bit of trouble making friends.

You might've been that kid in the corner who didn't want to talk to anyone, but more likely you had trouble cultivating friendships because it requires you to put a certain amount of trust into another person that you've already invested into yourself.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
