So I’ve just recently been thinking about my future (im about to turn 20) and if I want to move away from my home, where I’ve lived within 40 miles of the same place my whole life. And honestly, im torn. I don’t love this place, I want to get out, see the world, live on the coast, get away from this freaking wind.
But what stops me is I’ve done a lot of thinking and realized that family is really all you have in life, and if I move from here I’ll rarely see my family.
Im not particularly close to my family, and as is right now since im in college I only see my dad/brother once a month or so until summer, and my sister once a year since shes overseas. But still, I know if I ever needed them they’re just an hour away.
I guess I wanted to ask how many of you moved far away from your parents? Why? Do you regret it? If it wasn’t for my Dad, I would move to the coast the second I graduated college. We might not be really close, but he gave up a lot for me. Just the thought of moving far away is hard.
