I seriously think moving out and being away was the best thing for my relationship with my family. I feel so much closer to all of them now even though we are 70+ miles away. I appreciate them so much. I love being able to skype my sisters and parents and catch up and goof off, and not feel as smothered as I did when I was like 17 or whatever.
sometimes having space can make a world of difference and completely change your outlook. whereas in high school, a lot of the time I spent having petty arguments with my older sisters or getting mad at my parents for stupid shit, nowadays I can’t wait to go visit home and relax and laugh with them all.
seriously, if you are in high school and have issues with your siblings and parents or whatever, just wait until you move out, get some space and time to be on your own…it makes all the difference :)
