    I'm 19 and feel old that I'm in my parents home.

    I also wanna move out because my bro and pop dont get on with me much which I wish they could but they are pretty stressed out. I love them but not much, isn't that cruel that I feel this way?

    I'm 19 and I'd really like to move out of my

    parents house because I want to learn to be independent. My mother is very controlling and doesn't teach me much. She just does things for me. I've tried to explain how I want to learn but she doesn't get it. How do I tell them I want to move out? They say I'll save money if I...

    I'm Not A Second-class Citizen

    I know why they want to keep me here. It's obvious that they're afraid to lose their children. But I've got to break loose. I am almost 19 years old, and I always told myself that when I was 18, I would leave my parents' house. I just knew that I'd move away to a University, and...

    Not Sure How To Go About It....

    Way back when, probably from ages 12-15, more or less, I used to think I'd move out as soon as I hit 18: get a job, get a house, get married, have a kid. Obviously, I was crazy, but that's a story for another day, lol. After 15 or 16 or whenever, I stopped having that drive and...

    I asked them today, after we fought about college and how I am not able to go once again this semester because life keeps getting in the way, how they felt about me moving out. I am 19 years old now, and I have been dreaming of the day that I can have my own space for a year...
