Not the dream you were hoping for

February 28, 2017

 Moving out of your parent’s house is not the dream that you expected to live, at least it wasn’t mine. 

I was expecting this new life, that somehow I could become a different person maybe more easygoing or more of a party person, but it wasn’t like that at all.


Responsibilities just kept piling up.


I just thought that it was going to be fun and I was going to be able to do whatever I wanted.

Maybe if you live with roommates, friends or your significant other, it would be more fun and you would have other things to do around your home.

I had to worry about having the money to pay bills, to pay the rent, and of course having money for food. 

Then there’s also the chores that you have to do such as cleaning, doing laundry, and making food even if you’re tired and don’t want to do it. 

Being an adult is harder than it looks, I used to think that I wanted to grow up, wanted to move out on my own and be free, but I didn’t actually think of all that came with it. 

Recently I stayed at my parent’s house and it was so relaxing.


I didn’t have to worry about anything for a whole week.


My mom made me food and I didn’t go grocery shopping, I didn’t clean anything either. 

This probably makes me sound so spoiled and whiny but it felt nice to have a break once in a while.


I know that most people don’t even have these breaks, and I don’t know how they do it, how they handle being an adult. 

I’m even stressing having to do my income taxes and I have absolutely no idea how to do so.


I feel like I’m failing at being an adult. 

Having a space just for me it’s such a vital part in my life and sometimes my family doesn’t get it.


That’s also one of the reasons why I wanted to go and live by myself.

Not everything is bad.


Sometimes it feels great to have a place just for yourself and do whatever you want there without anyone complaining about it. 

If you’re thinking of moving out of your parent’s house think about it thoroughly and then make a well-informed decision, because if you don’t you might regret it.
