When you thought it was the right time to leave home?

I'm 19, and I have a good relationship with my parents, but I got an offer from a friend to live with him, and I'm thinking in say yes, to have more freedom, you understand?

I live with my Mum. I have done since I was 14 when my parents divorced and my Dad moved out. BTW I'm 27, and I still don't feel the need to move out.

Renting a place, even with friends is expensive here and I couldn't afford it on my benefit payments, alongside paying bills and all that. At the moment, I get like 200 bucks a week - I pay my Mum rent, I pay the broadband bill, I pay for the WWE Network monthly ( :lol:) and my data plan for my iPhone and that eats up a lot of my money. I couldn't imagine trying to stretch it to rent and other bills as well.

Plus my Mum is my WWE watching buddy, without her I'd have to watch it on my own, which isn't too much fun. And she treats me to holidays overseas as well, so I think I'll be sticking at home for awhile longer :wink:

My fear is also the expenses, and lose that feeling of 'security' that you have with parents...

I'm not judging because everyone's situation is different, but I just find it odd being that old and not employed. I know NZ's unemployment rate would be that of Australia's. And some work isn't glamorous, but being on some hustle and grid is surely better than relying on a benefit.

You think I don't want to work? Cos that sorta sounds like what you're implying, saying I "rely" on a benefit :-? I have no work experience - I've applied for literally thousands of jobs and nobody will even give me a chance. So what the hell else I am supposed to do? Have no money of my own and rely on my parents? Cos hell no, I'm not gonna do that.

And you've never heard of somebody in their mid 20's without a job? Wow. Half of my friends are unemployed! Sorry, but having to defend being on a benefit is a touchy subject for me, it's not like I WANT to be on one, I have no other choice!

Anyway, right now I'm on injury exemption cos of my knee, I can't stand up for long periods of time so anything like fast food or retail is out for me at the moment :roll:

I was born in Sydney then lived in some sh*tty bush town in Northern NSW with my parents, who named me after a quartz. Feeling resentful, I started doing the local black bois and realised I was in love with black culture. When I was 16, I planned my escape. My parents let me fly halfway across the world all by myself, no questions, and I ended up living in some frat dungeon in Miami and worked illegally until I became a successful rapper, makin millies with my gorls Ariana, Jenny (and to a lesser extent, Charli). Jokes, I still live with my parents on the Gold Coast.

No I get it and of course I don't know you, or your situation. It's always frustrating looking for jobs, and discouraging. And sometimes it is just luck and good timing. Just for me personally, and it's just a prrception, I've always just see you make a lot of excuses. I mean, if you get knee pain, what leg strengthening are you doing to combat it?

That's just my perception though and I could be completely wrong, I don't know you in real life, only online.

No :cry: I'm too indie to join the basic bitches who are born in Sydney and try to get out. That's why Iggy is successful - she's so mainstream.

I agree with Kushi. Australia and NZ are great countries that provide great opportunities for their people. I even think New Zealand provides better opportunities than Australia. You could study full-time (and still receive money from the government), or even do volunteer work to give you some good work experience. Not that I'm judging, I just think 27 is quite young, and it'd be a shame not to take the opportunities you would get from living in a country such as NZ.

How in the world did I end up defending my own actions here? :-? I don't really want to discuss this tbh, it's depressing and just makes me feel like a failure cos I can't even get a volunteer job. I was turned away from a couple of volunteer jobs as well!

Anyway, we're off topic, this is about whether people live with their parents or not, not people on benefits.
