In recent times, many people are making the decision to live alone.
What are the causes of this?
Does it have positive or negatives effects on society?
Nowadays, a greater number of people are making the choice to live alone.In this essay, I will discuss the reasons behind this growing trend and will also analyze whether it is a positive or negative development.
There are many reasons why people are increasingly making such a choice. Firstly, the society is not as tolerant as it used to be the case in the past. For example, the divorce rate in many countries is alarmingly high which entails why many people are not making a social union. Secondly, the weaker economy,financial trouble and poor employment rates are also contributing towards this behaviour as most are scared that they cannot afford a family.
In my view, such societal shift has both the upsides as well as the downsides. With regards to positive sides, individuals can live an independent and fulfilling life without any social or financial family pressure. For example, who lives alone can organize his/her life according to his/her needs and priorities. As far as downsides are concerned, it is undeniable that living alone leads towards loneliness and boredom. As a result of this, many people get involved in anti social behaviour such as drugs and hence destroy their life.
To conclude, social intolerance and worsening economic situation are some of the causes people live alone. However, such individuals can live a free and independent life even though sometimes it may put them under a loneliness and distress which in turn may destroy their life.
