Moving back in with parents. - June 13th 2011, 12:00 AM

Long story short,I'm going to have to move back in with my parents. They're fine with this, but I'm really not. Any tips on coping with such a big change? Their house is tiny, so personal space almost doesn't exist.

Re: Moving back in with parents. - June 13th 2011, 01:45 AM

I'm in the process of moving back in with my father and his girlfriend, so I totally understand what you're going through! My dad doesn't like it when I go off on my own - he feels like I should always be around him, either contributing to the household chores or keeping him company. He doesn't understand that I need time to myself. So what I plan on doing is scheduling work in a way that will allow me to spend some time with him, but also have time to myself as well. I've also set clear boundaries and "rules": I need "x" amount of days every week to hang out with friends, to have quiet reading time, etc. It's going to be a difficult adjustment at first, but just make your needs clear to your parents, and hopefully they will understand. If you need to get out of the house for a day, do it!

I'm sorry you're having to go through this right now. I think you should do things to keep yourself busy to help cope with the move. When you're feeling overwhelmed or frustrated maybe go hang out with friends, or maybe pick up a hobby. I think that the best thing that you can do is to stay busy. Also, get yourself on a daily routine. That's likely to keep you busy, and a little more st ease because there is structure. What kinds of things do you do throughout your day? Maybe write out a to do list each day. All of these things are going to keep you less focused on moving back with your mom. Good luck!
