Living with parents as an adult.
I just moved back in with my parents and things aren’t going we’ll at all. My mother and I never got a long and my dad looks at me like I’m a failure. I’ll be 24 on the 31st and I lost my job a few months ago. I’ve never been good with budgeting or being on time. I’m also not very patient so I dropped out of college and started a medical assisting program. That was a bust and a waste of time. I ended up working in a doctors office I hated for $10/ hour. So now here I am a single mom who about to be in her mid 20’s and I have nothing to show for it. A lot of friends have already graduated college and are going back for their masters. My parents have convinced me not to start working, but to go back to school full time in January. While I’m thankful for their support, their comments here and there hurt about how I can never be on time, I’m selfish, I’m lazy, etc. What would you do if you were in my situation.
