‘I just moved out of my parents’ house. I have my boyfriend to fall back onto and we’re moving in together but I’d never been so scared to move out. I’ve never been out of my parents’ house. I worried about what I’d do if we break up but we’re signing a lease and we’re good together. I usually have a backup plan but, this time, I don’t. I’ve just had to find the nerve to jump and I’ve been finding it through my experiences.
I might not know how to handle paying bills and taxes and dealing with adult issues but when this opportunity to move out came up, I had to step up. I had to. I was afraid and it scared the shit out of me but I have to be an adult and now is the time. The funny part is that it’s not as scary as it seemed and I’m learning how to manage my money after all.’
