How do I convince my parents I want to live on my own?

Home More advice Parents & Family

I am 18 years old, and I am not that close with my parents. It's because they are my parents but otherwise I would rather not talk to them at all. Things happend in the past which made it like that. The case is that I think that maybe if we all had a little more space we could get along again. I've talked with them about this multiple times, but their opinions are always different sometimes they think that it might be good and another time they think I can not handle living on my own. How do I convince them that I really want this? I am really afraid that if things keep going on as they are going now we end up as a broken family. I do not want to end up like my mom, who barely speaks to her parents. I want a normal family where everybody gets along. And I really think that everyone could get along if we all had some more space. Does anyone here has the same experience and maybe some tips?
