When you flew from the nest
« on: July 23, 2018, 06:25:42 AM »
Do you ever look back and feel guilty for flying from the nest knowing that you made your parents worry and miss you?  When you're the one leaving it seems like a fun adventure, but it's sad when you're the one left behind.  At least that's how I feel.

 :goodpost: really makes you think!  I could not wait to get out of my mother's house, but it was more like a prison than a home life...  I have really went over board making my son's home HIS home...  maybe to much..   
Plus my mom was the kind that thought when we turned 18 we were gone anyway.

I was eager to leave too but it wasn't long before I started feeling home sick. It is quite interesting that things happen so fast and within no time, we are actually the ones left behind. We had parents who were strict disciplinarians and personally I started seeing the sense of it all, as an adult living on his own.

I actually stayed with my mother for a long time and thought I was a hinderance to her. Now looking back I know that I wasn't and that she loved having me around. Our relationship did become much better once I moved out. The same can be said for my children and me right now.

I wouldn't say I feel guilty, but I definitely have more compassion for my parents now. When I was leaving the nest, I didn't understand all the fuss and worry. Now, I do, and I have empathy for my parents and all of the emotions they experienced when I left.

It certainly is a different feeling when you're the one leaving home, because you have so much to look forward to, many new friends to make, college to focus on. I never really thought about the loneliness my parents may have felt. But now I know what it feels like and it hurts! Makes me feel like I should've called them more often and not get so caught up in my own things.
