So I’ve been back home now since September 2019 living with my parents after having spent the previous year and a half travelling and living on my own as I worked in national parks. It was a difficult, and still somewhat difficult, adjustment mentally to go from having the time of my life on my own to now being back home in a place I don’t want to be until I can (soon) afford to move out for good.
All this time thought I feel totally cynical and ignorant against my parents because I don’t really want to spend time with them. Most nights I’d rather spend up in my room, isolated doing what I want to do, and making my own plans rather than being with them. They ask me to do stuff with them but either it doesn’t interest me or it’s just boring (my mom asks if I want to watch movies with her all the time which just gets old). There is nothing my parents are doing wrong to make me feel this way, they haven’t done anything wrong. But I just want to be my own person and I’m already around them all the time, especially during quarantine.
Has anyone experienced this before? I hope I don’t sound cynical, but It’s just how I’ve felt about this situation for months and want to see if anyone else outdoor has gone through this same kind of thing.
