@EmieBee4:  You’ll be fine! I personally struggle from anxiety and depression and when I first moved out, I was worried but everything worked out. It was nice to have my own space when I needed it, and to know that I could do it on my own. You can still visit and even though I only moved 4 miles from my parents, I email my mom daily and we’re ususally over there for dinner a few times a month. You just make it work- the first few weeks/months will take some getting use to, as to how the two of you work/live together but you’ll learn, grow and make it work.

@EmieBee4: 

Congrats on the new direction in your life.

I am in my 30s and I still miss my childhood home. I live 500 miles away from my parents with my husband. I wish we could live much closer.

It’s just that time of your life when little bird is spreading her wings. For most people it’s a necessary event in life to be nudged out of the nest and it causes some anxiety for most people. You will become less anxious and more assured over time 🙂

I was freaked out when I moved away from home too…except I had not met my SO yet, I had gotten a job 1 1/2 hours away from my parents house so it was too long to commute. It was super hard but my life is amazing now because I did it. You are lucky that you will also have the support of your FI. The $4 toll DOES suck though.

Congrats!  It’s scary making such a big change, but you’ll be fine.  If you miss Mom, you can Skype too.  Smile  My daughter moved away from home last August, at age 22.  However, she moved to Japan!  LOL  It was a bit harrowing for her, at first, but she has gotten used to being independent.
