Leaving the nest
I'm 25, the oldest of 3 children (23, 18) and still living happily with my parents (we all are still there). Next year is going to bring a lot of changes - brother moving out to study, sister going overseas.. and where does it leave me? We are a very close-knit family, we all get a long well, and I have never really had an urge to get my own place. Should I just make the decision to go, eventhough I have no urge to do it? I don't want to be missing out on a different part of my life (living in my own place) and making moving out harder and harder. I'm already fearing a HUGE case of home-sickness if I eventually leave! What should I do?
There's no immediate hurry for you to move out --- and surely you should discuss these concerns with your family, and explore your different options.
