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?
Get a job for you and start living a life of your own I am sure you are mature enough to look after yourself Thats my feeling Anyway to tell my story I left my parnets and was staying aloe form teh age of 18, I worked in a hotel ans was living alone, At teh age of 21 i got married to a boy who was working in my same hotel, We lived together and lved a nice life till the age of 28. at the age of 29 we had to part our ways, and i was alone , When I reached 30 I married another guy who is a aeroplane designer we lived together and ar e happy now eevr after, this is my story I dont know whether this story will suite you But I feel you will defenitely like it when you stay alone When I was living with my parents it was hell but we started to live together with my partner life had a meaning . Anyway decide what suits you My story may not suite you at all sometimes Trust in god Thats the best thing to do when we are not sure as what to do in life Because god helps when we pray and I am a firm believer in god and his creations/ Thank you '
The same thing happened to me and I found that being open and honest about your intentions and expectations of moving helps a lot.
If you just pack your bags and leave it will send the wrong message.
Try sitting them down and say that you wish to move and begin your own life. You are 18 so you can do this. Explain that you have a plan (I am assuming you have a job and have already budgeted to know you can survive on your own). Tell them that you want to maintain a healthy relationship with each other and want their emotional support in your decision to move.
My tip is do not run away (that is what ya doin)...stay and sort it out.However you word it it aint in your inetrest or your parents to seperate...To me,if they say OK bye bye,they have given up on you...dont make them give up on you.
