I live at home with my parents. I’m only a senior in High School. I have a job, I pay for basically everything that I own. I consider myself to be a very mature and responsible person.
With that said, I live in a home where it’s killing me inside. I love my family and both of my parents deeply, don’t get me wrong. However, when you come home from school, work, anywhere really…and all you do is get screamed at, criticized and ridiculed it begins to get to you after awhile.
A few days ago my mother and I got into a dispute over something that was very minute and ridiculous. I honestly feel that in this case, she overreacted. Now, I’m sure you’re thinking: oh how typical, she probably always says that. But I dont. Not at all. I know that there are times when I deserve what is said to me, but this time? No. Not at all. And this time it lead to me being threatened to be kicked out.
So my question to you is, after I graduate should I try and stay at home for the next two-three years of college or should I leave? Move in with some friends that have already said they would and do the college thing also.
I’m really struggling with this decision. Please, give me your input.
