fucking adventure and growth is for people who move out of their parents home

Sunday, January 5, 2020

I had the longest conversation with my mother about the house I am living in. It was home until about eight months ago. Eight months ago I packed a "to go/ runaway" suitcase. The house I lived in has not felt like home for a long time, too long. I am ready to leave and start a new journey.

My mother during our conversation said that until I move out I will not be seen as an adult. I am 22. Regardless I can make my own decisions in my mind, not to her. I am learning at home and when I move out I will become- that's what she says at least.

There is only so much you can learn at home until you can't grow. I hate feeling stuck and like I am not growing... so I have made the choice to MOVE OUT. I am going to start a new adventure. Part of me wonders if I'll actually move out of "home" and the other part of me is saying, "Duh, of course, you will."

It will most likely be a few months or until summer. But I'll be in the process of moving out which makes me feel somewhat relieved.

I start back up again tomorrow as well as a new job and an internship. All very fitness related but big future stepping stones I'll be stepping on. Nothing makes me happier than a busy life. One that makes you feel like you are doing things. It's one of my favorite things.

A busy life makes a happy and distracted from the fact I am stuck at "home" V.

Thank you for your support and listening. I am signing off. Just a short update on one of my favorite internet corners.

  2. Good luck as you figure this all out.

    I'm 23 and want to leave home, but haven't for several reasons. It's been hard, but I've made it clear I'm an adult to my parents and they give me free reign. I travel, I'm self-employed, and I'm doing what I love. Why am I still at home? I don't want to pay rent and I don't want to cook only for myself. And besides, by living at home I can afford to travel.

  3. I feel this a lot, V. I think I've been ready to move out for the longest time for the same reasons you've said, but am not due to financial reasons. Luckily, my parents have actually had the expectation once I graduate I'm on my own >.< I am pretty excited for you to be moving out, because growth is the best.

  4. I really need to move out too, but I definitely can't afford to yet. Hopefully this year.

  5. Moving out is not an answer, being responsible is
