Currently, I am living w/ my brother and his girlfriend and his girlfriend and I don't get along. Now, it has come to the point that my brother is starting to turn cold on me (she is a great manipulator) and it is very unpleasant to live with them. My parents know about our disputes and how we don't get along. They want me to move back home because it is obvious I can't afford to live on my own down here if I move out and they think living there is very unhealthy. I do want to move back home, but there is a problem. It is a dead-end town with little opportunity to be successful. And I have a boyfriend. My parents want me home, but I don't want to leave because I love my boyfriend. He is willing to come back with me, but he is not able to live with me because it is wrong, according to my parents. He won't be able to afford a place on his own and he will basically be in a new environment, not knowing a single person besides me. I am torn. Should I stay or should I go? I've tried to look at both the pro's and con's and I'm still not sure. I don't want to hurt my mom so that is why I want to go back home, but then, I will be hurting myself too if I leave. Am I making the wrong choices here? What is the best thing to do? All my life I have revolved my life around other people's feelings and have always put myself second and I am hurting right now. I know I said some hurtful things to my mom in the last few conversations we've had, but I'm tired...tired of having to put other people before me. I try to not care, but I can't. I don't know what to do...
Any advice would be appreciated...thank you!
