Hello. I am torn between two decisions. My family is moving to Sacramento, CA this month BUT I want to get my own place as well (n my hometown...?) the problem is when I told my mom/family I want to get my own place w/my 1yr old daughter all I heard was, "You're gonna be homeless. CPS will take your baby. You'll be sleeping in homeless shelters. When I try to get my own place it'll backfire on me." Need I tell you, I do help pay rent,utilities, baby-sitting and internet. I just paid my parents $500 in back rent. I am to pay them about $595 a month to live at home. I know and CA things will be more expensive. I don't mind helping them but I am trying to get on my own two feet and I don't see them helping me. They want to rent out a house in CA in my name (using my credit) my mom's is damage. She told me she doesn't care about me moving out. I know she wants me to focus on my career and Los Angeles would be a great place to do that at. But I don't see my mother ever helping me get on my feet. I have told her numerous times I've been interested in getting my own place. I even wanted to get a place w/a college friend. I backed out because she (mom) said NO. She says no everytime I bring up wanting my own. YET, she criticizes me for NOT having my life together @ almost 30. I will be 25 in August. What should I do? Talking to her doesn't work. I don't want to be stuck living @home for the rest of my life. My mom already said, she doesn't care if her children never move out the house. But I want my own life. NOT HER LIFE!
