Childhood ends when a person gets to be a master of his own household. After all, parents can’t support you financially for ages. You have to get your own income, own apartment and own family. In the United States leaving parents’ house to become one’s own boss is a great tradition and has plenty of benefits for you as an individual. Check them out.
As a child to a middle-class family, you can get used to almost infinite amounts of pocket money your parents borrow you. However, leaving alone or with a partner forces you to manage your finances more carefully, watch over a weekly, monthly budget and strike a compromise between either getting a new Xbox One S or paying the bills, so that a landlord won’t kick you out next month. This teaches you to earn money and be wise as to how much you spend.
With no one there to tell you what to do and how to behave, you actually step on the path to self-understanding and then self-actualization. Clearing your mind after a hard day at college or work is a thing best done in your own crib. If you want anyone to strike up a conversation, reach out to a family to visit you or call up friends to throw a party. But the choice is always up to you.
Living with parents, you take them for granted. They’re just there, telling you to do stuff and dad always criticizing your physique, and mom always yelling at you to eat more vegetables. Leaving parents, we get to spend time with them rarely, but this time becomes hands down quality by all means, every minute counts. You might actually start loving them even more! But not your younger brother, he’s a handful anyway.
Sharing home with parents, you don’t have many live-changing decisions to make. Even the notion of what college to enter is most of the time decided on by parents with you having almost no vote at all. As an adult leaving alone, all the important decisions in life are yours to make. From which pizza to order to which car to opt-in for is decided on by you and you alone. You can ask for advice, but the final vote belongs to you.
Everyone makes mistakes. Only that smart people learn from such mistakes and stupid don’t. The hard truth is that living with parents you can hardly learn from mistakes. Your back is covered no matter what debauchery you fall into. Mom and dad are always on your side, do you can hardly realize the seriousness of a situation. Living alone, the consequences of the actions taken are yours to face, life troubles are yours to solve.
At the end of the day, the abovementioned cases shape your personality making more accomplished, real-life adjusted persona. You won’t be able to hide under mom’s skirt forever. Plus, society doesn’t treat fortysomethings still living at their mom’s pretty well. And you don’t want to be mamma's darling forever, right? Or… do you?
