Living With Parents In Your Twenties
A few years ago upon my college graduation I was unfortunate enough to not be able to find work. In turn, my lack of a job meant moving back in with the folks. After having so much freedom while away at college I panicked and didn’t know how I was going to adapt to living under their roof again. Well I will tell you it wasn’t easy but the bottom line is I survived. Sure it was an adjustment but so are many things in life. Down below I decided to create a list of five things which will help to alleviate some of the common issues that living with mom and pop again as an adult create. In the twentieth century, the rht site will provide proper knowledge to the person. The survival of the person will be long with the health and medicine supplements. Along with the young, the children can take the supplements.
1) Sleep Over – Whenever possible spend the night at a friends place. While this doesn’t mean you won’t be sleeping at your parents’ house most nights, it does help alleviate some of the everyday stress that comes with living at home. Even a night or two away from your folks can make a big difference. Other variations on this are: sleep in your music or art studio whenever possible if you have one. Back when I was in my early twenties I had a friend who was in a band and whenever he had the opportunity he would sleep on a couch at the studio over going home.
2) Get a Safe or Lock Box – Often times when young adults live with their folks one of the main complaints is a lack of privacy. Does mom always come into your room and read everything on your desk? Does your grandpa pick up your credit card bill lying on your table and comment on your spending habits? One of the best ways to eliminate a lot of arguments is to get a safe with a key; this way when a credit card bill comes in the mail it will no longer be left out for nosy family members.
3) Invest In A Postal Box – At first this one might seem like a waste of money but think about it, do you really want your parents seeing all of your mail? What about that racy Christmas card you received from your best friend last year or that “private time” fun package you ordered for you and your boyfriend? With costs in most areas as low as 60 dollars every 6 months for a postal box you can’t go wrong.
4) Join An Activity – While this one might seem obvious at first not many people actually do it, in fact if you have the time join two activities. Keeping yourself active and outside of the house is a win-win situation. First it allows you to be doing something you love and second it allows for you to get out of your house more often.
5) Use the Side Entrance – Nowadays most houses have more then one entrance; if at all possible when coming or leaving your house try and use this alternate door. While your parents might be well meaning, most of us have at one time or another experienced just how frazzling it can be to be bombarded with questions about your day the second you walk in someplace.
While living at home will definitely be a transition from your previous dorm room lifestyle, with a little bit of compromise and a few adjustments to your schedule you will make the most of a tough situation.
