There is nothing more terrifying than coming face-to-face with the real world after college. You have been comfortable living off your parents, but that comes with rules too. It’s not easy at all to live at home with your parents, especially if you’re an adult. If you’re still not sure whether you need to finally move out of your parents’ house, we’ve got you. Without further ado, below are some obvious signs that you need to just leave already:
Even if you claim that you have got the coolest parents in the world, there is also always some stuff you would not like to share with them and you prefer keeping it private. It can be your personal diary, the stuff inside your cupboard, your cellphone or anything. And with your parents around in the same house, your privacy suffers.
2. You Become Responsible.
Maturity, responsible behaviour and the fundamentals of life, these things don’t come easy. You actually have to be in that situation to learn what is the ideal thing to do, to behave responsibly like an adult. Once you are on your own you are bound to face many adversities and you often get into a crisis, but dealing with it unaided and living upto your duties without your family’s help will keep ultimately result in a more responsible you.
Who does not like an independent life where you are not reliant on anybody? The life where you count more on you and less on others. You believe in your instincts more than your parents’ experience. Then be it in monetary terms or for simple household chores. Doing everything on your own imparts a confidence which is much required in the today’s tough life.
4. You Can Have Things Your Way.
Living under someone’s roof means you have to abide by their rules. It’s pretty natural and you can’t really blame your parents because what they like, you might not like and what you like, they definitely don’t like. So having a place of your own gives you the freedom to design it the way you want, make your own rules, live life on your own terms and have pizza for dinner for endless number of days!
Dad’s not going to mow the lawn for you. Mom’s not going to clean your disgusting bathroom. No one is going near your dirty laundry. And guess what you have to do the dishes! This will help you to grow to become a responsible young adult who can take care of themselves. Hardship makes everyone to have a clearer perspective on life.
6. You Can’t Keep Up With The Curfew.
The thing is your parents still worry about you. When they know you’re out, they want to make sure you get home in one piece. That can sometimes mean requesting you come home before they go to sleep. It’s easy to get angry at them when they treat you like you’re 17, but it’s sort of tough to blame them.
7. You Can’t Have Your Friends Visit Anytime.
Your friends want to meet up for some chit chat or have a house party and you really want to have it in your house, but here are some other people too who are living in that same house. We can’t chill out the way we do with parents around. And at this very moment, you wish you had been living alone in your own bachelor/bachelorette pad and have all the crazy fun you are right now missing on.
8. No Constant Nagging.
Somehow parents are very likely to point out all the flaws in their children or indicating the unfinished chores. Why clothes are still lying on bed, why there is too much piled up stuff in your room? Parents have a say in everything we do which most of the times takes the form of lecturing, scolding or punishing. So just to avoid the lecturing and nagging, you might want to move out.
9. No Opinion Clashes.
Our parents belong to a generation which is almost twice a decade older than us. They ought to have a different mindset, different ideologies and different likes-dislikes than us. Difference in opinion often leads to ego clashes where often nobody is wrong but they just can’t agree with each other. And this often results to family conflicts which are unavoidable if you and your family are living under the same roof.
10. Give Them Space.
Your parents could go out and enjoy romantic lunches as a couple anytime they want but now they have a family which takes the prior most position in life. They become unable to manage spending some quality time with the spouse. So it’s time to give them some private space so that they can enjoy life the way they want. After all it’s not just about your freedom every time. Your parents’ is as much important.
