Homebody

Went to dinner last night with Meg, my 'rents and some family friends.

Watched a movie with Mom, Meg and a friend of hers.

Somewhere in there, I refused an invitation from Anna to go out.

I didn't think much of it until midnight, when I was crawling into bed. "What must she think of me, spending time at Mom and Dad's, instead of going to the bar?"

She probably thinks that I am odd. Too close to my family. "No wonder she's single," I can imagine her thinking, "she can't cut the cord."

I'm at Mom and Dad's house every weekend. I often spend the night. I am 26.

A psychotherapist love to get their claws in me, right?

I don't know why I even do it.

I'm not sure if it is for myself or if it is for my parents.

Because I feel safe there or because I cannot relax at my own house of if maybe I just have the emotional maturity of a preteen.

Meg does the same thing. We're both home a lot on the weekends. Reuniting the family unit? Getting taken care of? Whatever it is. We both do it. I'm probably worse.

It can't be normal.

I should probably stop.

Then I could, like, magically become normal. And maybe get a boyfriend or something.

I'm sure it is that easy.

Oh please...who have you ever met that is 'normal'? We are all weird!!!

And I don't really see what the issue is...so you like your parents? That is nothing to be worried about...I would give anything to have the sort of relationship with my parents that you do!

I have been reading your blog for a long time. I think it's so wonderful that you have a relationship with your parents like you do. Rob and I hope that our children will want to spend that much time with us!!! There is nothing wrong with that or YOU.

I have been following yr blog for quite some time..
I kinda relate wid u, on a lotta issues..
But u knw wat, From personal experience, i think ppl need to stop boxing themselves and their actions in wat is 'Correct' acc to wat society expects of us.
All yuo shld care abt is being comfortable in yr skin..
If u re happy..then who gives a damn, abt classification of 'ohh u re not cool enough'
