Not feeling like a total loser while living at home?
Ok so I go to a great local state college, my gpa was ok, so I knew I couldn't get into the best colleges. I knew I was at a state college level and the one I go to is one of the top ones. Where I live the rent is ridiculously expensive and 10k a year for student housing was out of the question. I decided to stay home. This has saved me a ton of debt, but my self esteem has suffered a bit. I help out as much as i can around the house and I don't have a paying job, but I volunteer. I feel like such a loser living at home cause many times my parents don't see me as independent, I don't drive, but 99% of the time I get to places by myself. When I get lectured I am told how good I have it compared to other students. My brother moved out for college and I am compared to him a lot too. How can I feel like less of a loser living at home? (some people I know also live at home). I plan to move out when I go to further my education.
