Completely Caged

The way my parents are I never really get to go out. Not unless they are with me. So, to avoid embarassment I rarely go out at all. My friends understand but, it is frustrating to know your friends avoid asking you to hang out because of your parents. They make me feel like I am in some cage. I have become so used to this cage that I can't seem to get myself out. I have never been a partier however, that doesnt mean I wouldn't like to try it out. I just want to get away from this place. maybe if I got out I could actually find myself and who I am. How sad is it that I myslef am not even completely sure of who I am? It is pretty freaking sad. I don't really get out much and it has caused the few relationships i have had to quickly come to an end. I could only wish someone would understand :/

I do. I'm a 25 year old college student and I'm still living with my parents because I can't afford to be out on my own. I have no friends to hang out with as a result and I don't even drive. I hate it because I see so many of the friends that I still do have left that are married, have kids and are basically living their lives.

Forgive me for saying this, but you seem young and I'm guessing that you're still in high school. I felt the same way, isolated and all I wanted to do was get out. It will get easier when you get older. I know everyone says that, bu I'm finding that it's actually true. Despite my predicament, I'm still able to get out there and figure out who I am. It's not easy, but I'm at a point in my life where I'm truly doing what I want and it's better because I have the support of my parents. Anyways, I hope what I've said has helped.

Peace Out
