red.ribbon Posted April 12, 2010 Share Posted April 12, 2010 I'm very close to my mum, in fact I think we are a little too co-dependent. Growing up, she often relied on me for company and support, especially when another failed relationship with a man would upset her. I would feel guilty for wanting to spend time with friends, and I find now even at 23 I still feel that way. She doesn't say things to make me feel guilty, it's just more so the fact that she doesn't find her own friends to socialize with. Her weekends consist of gardening and watching T.V. It makes me feel sad she doesn't have the confidence to go out and socialize. It's about time I moved out, considering my age. I'm excited by the prospect on one hand. But on the other hand, it makes me feel sad for a number of reasons: *I will miss spending time with my mum *I will be leaving the house and bedroom I grew up in *I feel guilty for leaving her by herself Anyone else had similar feelings? I'm sure there are....just needed to vent and any advice would be welcomed Link to comment
