    rosydelight :  Yes, this a pretty odd and unique situation. However, there are a LOT of things at play here which make things not so straightforward, so I wouldn’t be so quick to judge someone:

    • culture, being the child of immigrants
    • medical condition
    • low self esteem/dating anxiety
    • financial/legal issues with the house
    • lack of ‘adult life’ experience.

    While I agree that starting therapy/counseling sounds like an excellent idea, it really doesn’t help you right at this moment with your current situation. Honestly I would pass on the job right now but start slowly becoming more and more independent both financially and mentally/emotionally. And I still stand by my original suggestion of moving to a nearby big city like Chicago, Indianapolis, Cleveland or Pittsburgh in the next two years before making the leap all the way to California where you don’t know anyone and might be overwhelmed.

    All the best OP! Wishing you the best. Glad your mom was supportive 🙂

    lauralaura123 :  Sorry to hear about your interview, but so happy that you’re in a better place now after evaluating all your options! :). You don’t need to do everything now, take it one step at a time – adventures across the country will always await you later if that’s what you want! 

    Also, staying put does not need to mean that you’re inhibiting your personal growth, as you clearly have demonstrated 🙂

    lauralaura123 :  That’s awesome! Maybe to make things feel a little new, you could take on some decoration or house retrofit projects? Or just start with your room maybe. Just an idea if you want that excitement of moving without moving haha.
