    I do not know why our elders do not understand

    us and think whatever they are doing and saying is right. When we try to explain or make them understand that at once we can also be right but still they think that they are perfect and take any decision. I am not a burden but a support.

    Yep, I live with my mum.

    ...I'm unemployed and it's so difficult to find a job. I'm on welfare and buy my own food and when I have spare money I give that to my mum as a bit of rent. I have started my own glory box and I hope to soon move out.

    People may say that a man

    who lives with his mother is missing out on life, and I would agree, but the cohabitation is not to blame. It works but with effort of course. What I lack, well, I could still have that lack anyway--even if the reason for it is different.
