Hello.

I'm not only havin trouble making decisions, but also with feeling good about them after I make them. I recently decided to quit - or, rather, not enroll in - a graduate program. This is the second semester I chose not to enroll. I have good reasons for not pursuing the year-long degree, but I still don't feel 100%. In lieu of staying in my parents' house and pursuing said degree, I have made the decision to move out. I'm freaking out. It's like the road less traveled - I feel like I'll always wonder what could have been. What if I made a terrible decision and I can't hack it on my own? I'll be living - at least temporarily - with an acquaintance from college, but I'll be far away from my parents. I'm 23; I shouldn't need or want 'my mommy'. What is wrong with me!?

It is a big decision to move out on your own. I remember when I did. You are so use to being with your parents and that is all you know. Don't be so hard on yourself. You will do good. Keep pushing ahead.

One day at a time...

Hugs, Karen

Good Afternoon,
 
Everyone has mixed feelings about their first real move out of their family home.  A lot of times it is basically just about  leaving your comfort zone and being  unsure about what the future is going to be. I am sure your parents are going through the same feelings about  your leaving as you are.
 
I know my Dad and I were extremely lonesome for each other and I moved 100 miles from home.  I was only 17 years old. 
 
Remember to allow yourself to change you mind if things do not work out for you.
 
 
Kindly,
Kitt

You're all so supportive... thank you! It is scary and uncomfortable, but I think taking it a day at a time will help...
