We are all aware that the economy has been trying for many adults, but when does it become detrimental to be living at home? Many are starting to question this as they’re realizing more and more that living with their parents or family has done more harm than good. Many adults who are living at home are subjected to a lot of things from meddling family members to lack of privacy. What is also a detriment is how it can pose issues for socializing and dating. The fact that if you’re trying to establish a relationship with someone you began dating the last thing you need is a meddling family member coming between you and that person. It does not feel so great when you’re having to duck and dodge personal questions about your intimate life.
This also plays into how you can’t be alone with someone when there are other people in the house and it can make some people uncomfortable. It may sound practical to live at home with your family, but it’s not the best thing for some people because of the tension it can cause because many of us are used to having our own space, but with circumstances that result in job loss or divorce which are the main two reasons that so many people are moving back home to live with family.
Most adults are not dependent on their parents or family members which is how society wants the world to believe. The fact is that many have stable jobs, but arent making enough money to live on their own which is why so many long to escape their family member or parents homes to be free of the questioning and meddling which is a problem for so many adults who live at home. It’s difficult enough to also not being able to have a private life where you’re not being asked who you’re intimate with or dealing with having your privacy invaded. The economy has taken a huge toll on so many adults who are not dependent on their parents and family members, but are forced by circumstance to move home.
In light of things it’s best not to move home with family because you won’t have any kind of privacy and having boundaries with family and parents. For some of us who are dealing with the situation of meddling and invasive family members have to continue to do more to improve finances that will allow them to move out and get their own place. Having your own place is very liberating and it makes you feel like you’re able to stand on your own two feet and to make decisions like an adult should be doing. What makes things bad is when you have adults who are living at home in their 20s,30s,40s and even well into their 50s who have never moved out on their own. It’s those adults that make the ones who are independent and responsible look bad.
The responsible adults are the ones who are working to move out on their own and not to remain living at home with their family and parents. The bottom line is that living at home is not always the best solution to saving money because it only causes more problems in the long run than actually helping.
