I hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate living with my parents. I have no say in anything, even though I'm almost TWENTY-FIVE. It doesn't help that I haven't been able to find a job since September and that we live in the middle of nowhere and I don't have a car. I have to ask if I can go anywhere. I have to borrow money from them. They're always messing up my plans. They'll give me the go ahead, only to find some reason for me to cancel at the last minute. I'm going to lose what little friends I have if this keeps happening. I have less freedom than a high school junior. I have no one to sympathize with as all my friends managed to find jobs, some of them have their own apartments. I had my own apartment last year, but due to the recession and the loss of my job, I couldn't afford keep it, and thus, had to come back to mom and dad's place. 

I know things could be worse. My parents could've cut me off and kicked me out the day I graduated from high school, let alone college. That doesn't make this situation any less frustrating. When I'm not cleaning or canceling my plans, I'm crying. I can't take much more of this!!

Wow, I almost thought I was reading my own journal entry there for a minute. Being dependent on individuals that you naturally should be less dependent is very frustrating and I find hurts your self image, especially in our society. I hear ya, I am experiencing the same thing lately.

I know exactly how you feel I am in the same ****** up situation. I don't wanna say the cliche thing like things are gonna be better for , because I know exactly how you feel sometime. My situation is probably worse than yours I have some stories to tell believe me. Just wanted to let you know that things won't always be this way.
