Just playing grown up

The tough reality of living alone and surviving on my wage during the holidays is tougher than I thought.

Made even more so because of the lack of income. Well…. a lower income.

So who do I have to go back to ….. the over bearing parents. Who are constantly there for me and my siblings. But at what cost?

Making it hard to go to them due to the unkind and hurtful lecture but where else would I go?

I love them dearly but they do not allow me as a young adult to make my own decisions and suffocate me with their own.

So my wings are free but have not quite opened to their full span.
